Well- here we are one more winter has gone by and we're back outside working on our yard.
I raked and raked to get the old grasses and oak leaves out of the bed. I was so mad to see how the oak leaves managed to cover my entire garden bed. I'm sure they provided some insulation so perhaps that's a positive way to look at it.
My Queen Elizabeth Rose looks terrible. I think those deep freeze temps we had this winter took it's toll.
I cut it down real short in hopes that something will come alive. This is why I don't invest much in roses. I may be premature- I guess I'll know in the next two weeks. There is some white stuff on it too that looks like mildew- probably not good either?
As evening was setting I noticed a turkey fly up into the tree. They sleep up there which I find interesting. Sorry about the poor quality picture.
She's settled down on the branch for the night.
I took this on the 22nd. We had a snowfall during the night. It was the last laugh from nature I guess.
Thankfully it warmed up and we had some nice rains that got rid of all of this!
I took this on the 27th! So thankful for the rapid change!
We brought out the lawn furniture from the storage shed and I put out some pottery pieces to stare at and and dream about what I'll be planting.
