Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

60º Walk About

Yes, it was in the 60s today with no wind.  Time to walk around the yard to see what's going on.

Join me.




The Glen Garden has no sign of growth.


The pond is full of ice and snow yet.



The garlic is green there in the center bed.



English laurel was the main meal for the deer this winter.


Saw a blue bird earlier so opened up the box to clean it out.



View down our driveway into the wetlands below and pipeline easement beyond.


Nothing growing out front in Mom's Garden.


This hazel nut clump looks strange.  Why is there a bigger trunk?  May have to check once leaves come out to see if there's another kind of tree in there with the hazelnut.


Looking down into the woods.  I didn't get there anytime this winter.



Coming around to the backyard again.


Fairy garden house will need some rebuilding.


Perennial garden still dormant?


No, there's a spot of color from several clumps of crocus.



60º how nice!

Those green shoots will be appearing any day now. It's good to see so much of the snow has melted and you are able to get out in the garden again.

Love your shots of the crocuses! I think it reached into the 70s today here in Iowa, but we still don't have any flowers. The last of the snow on our property did melt today though. Spring is such a happy time! :)

Hi Marcia, Love love love your home/lot/privacy... If I were younger and had the money---I'd build a place just like yours... Gorgeous!!!!

Our Crocus blooms are pretty also and we have a hyacinth in bloom so far and a daffodil...

We are still busy cleaning up after the big storm --but things are beginning to look more like Spring here now...

Hugs,
Betsy

Well I'm happy to see warm weather, in the 39's and WINDY here today. Your cherry laurel kept your deer will fed...bummer. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Same here with the flowers, but Maryland should see more color soon!

Nice trip around your garden - mine is going the other way, getting its self organised for a few cooler months - it never really gets cold cold here - just cold for Australia!

Thank you for the walk. I quite enjoyed it. Green garlic is mighty tasty. :-)

How wonderful to see the earth and crocuses blooming, still waiting for bare spots, for the snow to melt away.
