Garden Update: Fresh Colors
One of the main reasons Spring is my favorite season is because there are so many beautiful colors coming alive these days!
Our trees are blooming like crazy.
I always think they look like a big bouquet in the backyard.
And I love to look at the flowers close up, to see the individual shapes of each petal and the little details inside.
The leaves are starting to spring out of the buds on the trees, which really fills in our yard, giving us a lot more privacy.
Our daffodils continue to bloom, and I keep finding more tulips opening. I always wish we had more clusters of tulips, so someone remind me in fall to plant more.
Our yellow woodland poppies are growing like crazy. They are tucked into a back corner on the West side of our house. Since our backyard is fenced in, you have to make an extra effort to walk on that side of the house to check on things. These plants spread, so I have to keep up on them regularly.
Our bleeding hearts are just starting to bloom. They are such a magical plant, aren’t they! True of many things in nature, something this beautiful has a trick up its sleeve: don’t touch them barehanded or you will get a rash.
We had a wicked thunderstorm over the weekend, which really brightened up the outdoors. I am looking forward to another week of new growth and surprises in our gardens. Soon, any chance for frost will be behind us for the year, and then gardening season will officially begin. I can’t wait!
Thanks for stopping by!
