I guess its official that the daily chores of spring/summer began today since it was my first lawn mowing of the season. I mowed the back where the veggie beds are. I really have created quite an obstacle course back there with all those veggie beds and fruit trees...but my dream is to eventually do away with all the grass back there. It looks so nice all freshly cut :)
I also did the first spring turning of the compost pile and added some nice shredded leaves to bulk it up a bit and get it ready to cook away in the summer heat.
Tomorrow, rain is in the forecast so i know all the plants will love it!
My tulip magnolia is starting to bloom, the daffodils by the azaleas are beginning to bloom, the tulips are coming up in the front yard, and the azaleas are bursting with buds...

Yes I feel it too. On trips around town today I saw the redbud, saucer magnolia, bradford pear trees all in bloom.
My early Azaleas have pink blossoms in the protected part of the plants. Spring is marching forward. LB
