Sun, Sun, Sun…Here it comes!

What a crazy couple of months we’ve had!  I’m just glad we’ve finally seen sunshine and warm temperatures. (OK, yes it’s raining today but the weekend is suppose to sunny.)  It is just making the whole landscape come to life.

I love walking or driving around and seeing all the beautiful flowering trees in bloom.  I’ve also loved seeing all my spring flowering bulbs coming up. And bonus, my rhodie bush in the front of the house is getting ready to “pop!”

My daughter and I added some more bulb to the front of our house last fall, along with some Sub-Zero Pansies and they have come in beautifully! (Did you know the plants and bulbs you put along the foundation of your house will come in faster than those in other parts of your landscape?)  I’m also proud to say the section my daughter and I created along our fence line is coming in well, too! She is very proud of the job we did (I dug the hole, she dropped in the bulb) but is a bit confused as to why they all aren’t up yet. We picked out bulbs that would come up at different times (early, mid and late spring) so it will be lots of color for the whole season!

I can't wait to try these new ground cover roses in my garden!

With the nice weather this weekend, it will be time to look at getting my veggie garden in shape and taking out the ground cover by my Forsythias with some new Drift ground cover roses. I’ve never really liked the groundcover that’s there and I love groundcover roses…I have a couple in my rose bed.  It will be a great way to add some cover and color when the Forsythias go green.  I can’t wait!

Have a great – and safe – Memorial Day weekend!  Until next time……
