Spring is blooming!

Spring is here! I will be busy in the yard for the next few days but thought I would share a preview of things to come!

Forsythias are blooming! I purchased these from a clearance rack at a big box store so they are lopsided and lived a rough life last year with the erratic care they received at the big box store.  This year I will clean them up and work on getting them back to a more natural shape and form!

Last year I planted a Scarlet Storm Quince on each side of the front steps. Quince are great early Spring bloomers but they always look thin and scraggly! I guess the early blooms make up for a not so attractive shape?

I have been finding some good books at the thrift stores. A cookbook for dogs? I hope Gus likes my experimenting with his tummy?

Tomorrow will be a full day in the vegetable garden preparing the beds for Spring and general clean up in the yard.  The temperature has been to almost 80f the past few days and I can see now what has survived and what needs a very hard trim.

More to come…
