Yes, spring sprang upon us swiftly!
We went from snow melting to full speed ahead spring!
Things are popping out of the ground at
such a fast pace I'm amazed.
A little while back our neighbor Tom had some trees cut
down because they are diseased as a result of that
Emerald Ash Borer.
Tom my husband Dan have been cutting up the trees. Some of it will be used for our little fire pit.
Tom has been creating a brush pile (very neatly)
They only heated with wood at their home as he grew up, so he learned all about cutting wood early on.
The woods are alive with all sorts of wildflowers
I believe these are called Yellow Trout Lily
or American Trout Lily
A type of Cranesbill called
Cranesbill Carolinianum (Carolina)
I don't have far to walk to walk in the woods, but it's riddled with lots of fallen branches and rotting pieces of old wood so you really have to watch your step! There is a strong odor of onion in the air. I didn't spot the plants but it's some kind of Wild Onion, or Wild Garlic.
Viewing the corner of my house and my front island.
I do nothing with this side of the house because it's so shady and rarely seen.
Out back of our property (a bit messy right now) you can see there is a service road. There was an active Christmas Tree plantation for many years but they've left the rest of them to grow on their own.
Once the trees are leafed out the view will be obscured.
Along my footpath to the patio the Brunnera, Jack Frost is growing rapidly. The Coral Bells are popping out too!
I'm still picking leaves out. I don't think I'll ever get them all!
The Weeping Larch is always fun to watch come back to life.
Back inside my Thanksgiving Cactus is blooming again!
I have been so surprised with this plant.
My tulips and daffodils are growing rapidly I
expect flowers soon. The magnolia is full of blooms
and I pray we don't get any killing frosts again
that ruin them!
How are your gardens coming along?
