So here's the pictures from yesterday that wouldn't post. It really is amazing the different varieties of Hellebore there are out there. This first one is a new one I picked up this spring. I also picked up another one that needs planted today.
Spring is really starting to come around. The late winter and early spring flowers are just rejoicing in the sunny day we had. I emptied and refilled the compost bin, and filled the yard waste and didn't even make a dent. Moved the strawberries from one spot, to their new home in the berry garden. Pulled a bunch of weeds and pruned the clematis. It really is amazing how everything is stating to come up. I am leaving the dead leaves on the tender plants though...and even piling extra leaves on them, as we could still have some late season snow in March. It was so nice to be outside working in the garden though.
I uploaded some pictures, but it won't let me add them to the blog...so they are in the February 2010 album.
So Saturday was about 60 degrees...and so I took the chance to get out and do some clean up in the garden. I can't believe all the things which are growing. I had to resist the urge to go completely crazy and clear everything out. We have had a warmer than normal January and February so far, but we always have that chance of a late snow in March. I need to get out and take some spring pictures...although with 3 more weeks of school I really am trying to work hard to get everything done.
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their gardens!
