I've been anxiously awaiting Spring so I can get outside and get dirty. Still isn't time to plant, but things are coming up. One of the local nurseries had small perennial plants on sale for $.99 and I really took advantage of that. The only bad thing is that they are not hardened off so I've been taking them in and out of the garage for the last week and plan on doing it for at least another week.
(Why is it that I took the picture 'landscape' and it showed up 'portrait' I turned and saved it 'landscape' and I can only get it on here 'portrait'?)
The two tall thingies are Clematis to climb on my new garden gate. I also had good luck with this type of sedem last year so I got another one.
We were watching Magnolia trees all over the city blooming like crazy and this is our first bud. There are a few on there and I'm very happy to see them. We just planted the tree last Spring so it's really working on just adjusting to the new space.
We planted lots of Daffodils and Tulips last Fall and they look beautiful. There could be more to make a statement, but it's a start. Do these multiply?
The Beebalm is looking very healthy. Hope we're home this Summer when it blooms, we've missed it the last few years.
All three Peonies are looking good and growing with a purpose.... blooming!
MM attached this birdhouse to this sink and anchored it to this stump last year. This year it will house a beautiful flowing plant. Pretty setting for a plant isn't it?
This is the Neon Sedum that I planted last Fall. When I saw how well it was coming up I decided to get another one. It obviously likes my backyard.
And last but not least are the beautiful Hostas. Yep, the deer or rabbits have already started nibbling on them, but we got out the repel stuff and hopefully have halted the little buggers.
I just love this time of year to see all the little pretties and signs of 'new life'. One of the best things about Michigan - the changing of the seasons. It is so pronounced and we anxiously await each one.
