MARTHA-ANN: we must be different thinkers cause "cuck-oo" does not remind me of spring so much as NUTS or CLOCKS. LOL!

Well,GINGER; flat but slopes down from the road to the house and on down behind the house more gradually.

Just back from the gym this rainy weekend and off to rest a mite then move furniture and paper work culling and organizing more; You doing schmousework today, too, MARTHA-ANN??????????

Thanks kat, the cuckoos are unlike any other bird I know Kat it has a distinctive cuck-oo cuck-oo call which is evocative of spring, lays it's eggs in other birds nests and doesn't have anything to do with it's offspring.....I seem to remember this conversation last year...LOL...you'll have to 'google' it and find out.

Ginger the rockery is finished apart from an odd plant or two needed to fill some crevices and the waterfall is twice as wide and running nicely. We're pleased with it.
DH wants to re-line the pond next as it has a leak somewhere and we have to keep topping it up so that's next on the agenda but we're still getting frosts on a night so it won't be just yet as he'll have to take the plants and fish out. The fish aren't feeding yet so until they do it's too early.

HA! ONE dutch iris bloomed yesterday. It looks dorky all by itself. dang it all.

Ginger; I usually do my annuals potted up but I am thinking, if I can find the right color to do petunias in the semi circular beds while I figure out what I want to put there permanently; my hydrangea appears to have given up the ghost! I am so annoyed. I cannot seem to figure out what I have to do for that dang bush type. I lose them all.

MARTHA-ANN; good to seeya sweetie! We have cuckoos but I have to see em to know they are there; those are the same as mocking birds, right?

my salvia are starting to form buds. my blue eyed grass looks good on either side of the balloon flower plant mound with frilly leaves; no flowers yet tho.

am trying to figure out what I want to do with the front semi circular planting plots I established last fall.
The coral bark maple is a hard plant to landscape against!

In the four years (almost!) that I have been on here, I cannot believe all the things that have been added; it gets overwhelming! I had trouble "showing" newbies where to find features I came in here knowing about, even! They moved a lot of things and reorganized them.

Well my hostas are growing strong, scented geraniums are flowering now! had to move a whole hillside of them and decided to try them round my silver maple that hogs all the water and has shallow roots, because nothing else worked.....hopefully the geraniums will prove tough enough.

Bleeding hearts are doing great and the one I planted in back loves its new home, so that is good. My little bell flower from seeds last year is making its first nice substantially mounded appearance flanked by my two blue eyed grass plants,and the third spirea decided to be resurrected! I am so happy; want to plant my blue fescues but don't know if it is warm nuff for them yet. So they remain potted and pottering about. LOL

Well I need to go put something besides strong coffee on my tum.
Have a super day, people!

They are perennials. Most are blue but there are some pink and some white. I have a garden that fills with them every spring; and when there are done, I pull out the old browning plants to let my other plants have their time and they reseed and come back the next year spring. :) I'll post a photo in a little bit.

Beautiful day but no blooms as yet. Had tulip bulbs stored over winter so I planted them! Will they grow?
Looks like some started to sprout already in the packages. Oh, well. If they don't I tried.

Heard some robins singing while I cleaned up some of the dried stuff in the garden. And some black birds were screeching at me - maybe taking away some of their nest material????

Ah, spring . . . !

GINGER so there IS sucha thing as bluebird-specific birdhouses, then?

MARHTA-ANN: I am wondering why the tips of my japanes coral bark baby maple are grey; like deadwod, so gonna have to find out what I need to do.

I managed to sidetrack myself during my garage organizing, when I located bulbs I had dug up and put in buckets! I potted up a bunch into four pots! I don't have a place for them right now and the ground is really too wet to go trying to plant them, PLUS they are spring bulbs and I don't even know if they will get to flowering kTHIS way, but they had green shoots coming up so thought I would try; still have tons more that are NOT potted up!!

WET wet wet today! Hope to get some seeds started tomorrow, for like tomatoes etc. inside.

my daffs are a blooming, and so are the squills and crocus are dying back already; I see the bleeding hearts are popping out of the ground; they grow really fast so have to keep an eye on them since I promised Matt's teacher some, last year.

Do you have to have a special type of bird house for the blue birds, GINGER?

Well gee, since I can't hear, I reckon I don't know what to look for or what may be out there; but I can see sprouts and shoots! yahooooooo!

I love seeing the gold finches but they are not here yet. I have only seen a bluebird once and I believe my neighbor told me it was a blue bunting......not really a bluebird?? I do not know birds very well!

How exciting. I love Blue Birds, and a Red Fox as well. That would make my day. The Western Scrub Jay gave me a surprise. I was up at 1am, and it was in our pine tree, squawking away. We have a Mockingbird that stays up all night, but the Jay surprised me!

wowowow! flood problems! snow problems!! temp drop problems! I have to say, all of a sudden, my blue eyed grass is springing up, my bellflowers are ruffling out their little leaves, my silmvermound has grown over a quarter inch in two days, salvia is greening up and pushing up, not sure I will get the dutch iris tho still......squills are blooming, not sure that expensive hydrangea I got is gonna do very good this season; one bud active on it near a stumpy bottom; cleaned out the rusty dried out chamomile clusters, and cut back to green;

Got rosemary potted up n my lettuce greens are shooting in the large pots I put em in! Planted spinach in windowboxes edging the veggie plot, and set up poles to hold black netting for the peas I planted today; snow peas, that is.

What a wonderful 4 hours for me! first yet outside this spring too.

well, i walked around the pond 2 days ago, and the skunk cabbage is coming up. but lastnight it started to rain and now the pond and brook are flooded. the little wooden foot bridge is completely under water, and usually it sits 3 feet above the pond! the upper pond is bypassing the waterfall, and has washed out the little road, which is now a 20 foot wide waterfall to the lower pond. if i can, i'll try to take pics tomorrow and post them. of course, my basement flooded; me & hubby have been bailing since 7 a.m. the rain isn't due to end til tomorrow night and the ground is so saturated. we are going to call the fire department tomorrow to get pumped out but the fireman told me we'll probably have 150 people ahead of us on the list. my daughter has no school tomorrow because the road to her school is flooded out. and we're not even into spring yet... emoticon

I have been shown the measly lot of crocuses I have, LOL and I am not sure what to do at this point; had to tear up and move several gardens so everything has to be built back up again, I am afraid.

I am not sure what is supposed to be showing now, and hope my plants are not sick; or worse, gone. MY sage plants look horrible; need to find out what I should be doing with them. Not sure the dutch iris are coming up this time since they grew so much during the long fall and then got frozen.

UGH so much to do and my hydrangea is looking pitiful; not even sure it will make it. Got lots to do when I get done with this set of panels for Lent

Most of us are getting spring fever. Here, we have Almond Trees that have bloomed. Daffodils have bloomed. Mockingbirds have been singing away. Red Tailed Hawks are out in numbers.

We are getting a little rain today...the temps are right at freezing so hopefully this won't stick around. Have done enough driving on ice for one winter.

dirt is good, lol! just a mite more snow here to melt; then i bet spring rains hit and we have to "wait"........Lowe's has a new product which is a portable greenhouse, for 199! I am sorely tempted.

Meanwhile I grabbed a bag of potting soil and am going to get some greens growing in my big pots emoticon

daffodils are pushing up! dutch iris I am not sure about; they tried to come up during the fall so now their tips are brown but base is green so fingers crossed! The trees are swelling at the tips with buds. I don't know what birds herald spring as there was a robin a month ago during the snows trying to get to a nest in a snow covered evergreen bush!

okay - it may be too soon, but i'm desperate! please post any signs you have in your area that spring is on the way. i live in new england, and the weather has been crappy for way too long. there's one area of my neighborhood that bursts with "snowdrops", those early spring flowers. i keep looking for them and will let you know when they appear. what are all of you looking for or seeing? PLEASE tell me spring is coming!!!!!
