I'm finally getting back in the garden after several weeks of cold weather.
After the beautiful weather we had in March, the cold weather returned as soon as we turned the calendar to April. Mother Nature said April Fools, we are not done with winter yet!!
It's been a frustrating few weeks of trying to keep tender plants covered then uncovered repeatedly. I see we have some more lows in the mid 30s forecasted this weekend:(
Some of my favorite hosta's got frost damage even though I covered them. I don't know if I should cut them back or not. I guess I'll wait and see what they look like and cut off the damaged leaves.
I would much rather have my cold weather when we are supposed to have it and get it over with!!!
Here's what's bloomin'
Anyone need Forget-Me-Nots? I have plenty to spare!
Dogwoods are blooming in Serenity Cove. They are even prettier with the Cardinals perched in them.
I wanted to watch this bluebird get that into the nest but what appeared in the next photo made him fly away.
Ajuga is so pretty when it's in bloom but it spreads fast. I never see weeds get through this so it makes a great ground cover. Nothing I hate more than ground covers that don't do what they are supposed too!
I need to get this trimmed back. See how it is growing out into the pavers. I just take my half-moon edger along the edge of the pavers. If I want to start more somewhere else, sometimes I pitch it on a bank somewhere and it starts growing. Doesn't get much easier than that.
Up next I'm going to share a tip using one of my favorite garden tools.
