So I think that I can safely say that Spring has sprung around here. We had our first Spring rains this week and wow did everything respond. Here are a few photos of what's coming up in the yard:
Daffodils between the driveways.
Asparagus in the veggie garden. Got the first harvest of about 10 spears this week.
Tulips along the South side of the house. The rest will be a week behind because these are in the warmest spot.
Summer snowflakes in the front bed. I cleaned it out last week and they have shot up and will be in full bloom soon.
Dwarf Iris patch in the front bed as well. These are usually in bloom for Tax Day. They might be a little early.
So we went from nothing really in bloom, to all kinds of exciting things. Tomorrow I will be driving to Omaha to help one of my friends with her yard, they just bought their house a couple of years ago and is in that phase of "Is this a weed? or is this a flower? why would anyone plant this here?" So it should be a fun day of clean up and catch up.
Continually amazed at how much knowledge these presenters have about their subjects. We learned about Perennials installed in the city gardens and landscape design on Day 4. Then on Day 5 we learned about the effects of Pesticides. I only have two more class sessions before I have to take my test, I hope that the test will be easy.
On another note, peeked out in the garden yesterday and saw the first tips of Asparagus breaking through the soil. So I added my 1-1/2 of compost for the season. I should be eating fresh Asparagus in about 2 weeks!
Some tulips are putting leaves up as well as the daffodils, but it will still be quite awhile til they bloom.
