Signs of Spring #2...
|Daffodil overcome by the onslaught of snow the week before...|
I worked very hard this week to find lots of Signs of Spring and I think I did! This weekend we were able to spent both days out in the yard which feels amazing. It wasn't very warm yet, but at least it was dry!
|Colorful gloves, a Crocus and a Helleborus...|
No idea what kind of tree this is but it had color
and I thought it looked fun!
(apparently it is a Witch Hazel)
|Do you see the Hummingbird???|
(it is that green thing hovering in front of the above hummingbird feeder)
Yesterday we visited a plant nursery and we bought some fun Primroses. Very cheap and an instant flash of color! We also loaded a cubic yard of top-soil in our truck and added that to the necessary areas in the yard, with our new wheelbarrow I might add.
G. doing his first planting of the season: snap-peas!
Can you tell he is a mathematician?

Today G. left early and bought another cubic yard but this time of a mulchy top layer for the vegetable beds. Again the new wheelbarrow came in very handy. I did lots of digging in the yard: we have several plants that were very pretty in themselves but have been overtaken by grasses, weeds and/ or ivy and it has been driving me crazy! They just had to go! This means of course that we have now created new areas for new plantings: yay!
The forecast for this week is again lots of rain so this will be it for the gardening for a while. That is a good thing because I can hardly move...
