Promised Photos

I spent most of the afternoon pulling up grass and planting these Stone Crop Blue Spruce Sedum. I moved the ajuga that had been there to the bed outside of Dan's study. I hope it grows better there.

We planted daffodils in four spots last fall. One spot was on the edge of the glen. In years to come this will be quite a display in spring time. For now its only single blooms with the promise of more in the future.

You know its spring when the bleeding heart is up.

I don't know the name of this wildflower that someone gave me last year after they had bloomed.

Garlic is doing super. I need to plant red onions now. They'll go in a perennial bed since the deer won't bother them.

Here's another spot we planted daffodils. I can see these outside my bedroom window except the flowers face away from the house.

What's happening in the garden?

The garlic is up and very green.

Daffodils are blooming where we planted bulbs last fall.

Spinach and peas have sprouted in the new raised beds.

Hostas are poking through the earth and will need to be sprayed so they don't become deer food.

5 yards of mulch to be delivered next week and will need to be spread.

Lavender and Russian sage needs to be pruned .

Onion sets to be planted as well as other cold weather crops.

Sitting here doesn't get it done so I best be going to do it.

I'll take some pictures today too!
