Five shipments came yesterday from the winter ordering. There is another ten shipments due in the next two weeks. I've been a busy boy. I am starting another rock garden / terrace garden combo. I got the landscape clothe down this morning. I bought sixteen bags of cheap top soil that I will enrich with rotted manure compost.
I had my inspectors check it out and give their AOK.
I took a picture of my other almost brand new rock garden. Things are showing and I am filling in the spaces with the new shipments as they arrive.
The Almond bush is full of buds getting ready to bust into bloom in the next few days.
And last but not least, the boxwood is going to try to out do itself with new growth this year.
I don't want to bore everyone with too many pictures, but there is so much going on in my garden, and I am so sore from trying to bend over. I think I need one of those epson salt baths.
You all have a Happy Easter and happy gardening. Bill Mitchell
Finding food in the snow is hard work for the birds. We didn't get 12 + inches like they did in Louisville, but we did get 2 to 3 inches here in Jabez through the night. I keep fifteen feeders full year round. I filled them last night and by 10:00 am, they were about empty. The last one with any food is next to the door where the cats go out. The birds are more cautious. Here are a couple of pictures I took through the storm door.

We are forecasted to receive 6 inches of snow and ice mix tomorrow and Saturday. It's almost 60 deg now. I wont be working in the garden for several days. I will be building another computer for my neighbor and his girl friend. Computer building is another love of mine. So it will still be another joyful weekend.
Y'all have a great day and happy gardening. The Hillbilly
This daffodil bloomed this morning, but before I could get out to take it's picture, the clouds opened up and dropped buckets of rain on us again. That knocked the flower down a bit, but this picture is now part of this springs history.

It was an exceptionally warm day, got near 70 deg. I removed the protective covering of leaves from several areas of the garden, exposing new growth everywhere. The seeds in the cold frame haven't germinated yet. I know some will and I'll be scratching my head wondering where to put it all. At the end of March, I have tons of plants that I ordered this winter being shipped. They will probably all come on the same day. That's my luck. I've been on this computer, replying to blogs and sending PM's and it's 2:00 am. I just looked over at the last group of blooms on the amaryllis and I had to share this stunning beauty.
