Weather Report: We’ve had a heat spurt, getting up to 81 degrees (F) on Friday. I actually had to open a few windows during the night to cool the house. Today was a little cooler and I had every intention of working on my garden chores list. Then the rains came. And really hard. I’m afraid my more delicate blossoms may fall apart. I’ll find out tomorrow morning.
I was able to take a few pictures before it began to rain. The unseasonally warm weather has made the mid-spring flowers pop.
Dogtooth Violet or Trout Lily though it is not a violet or a lily. A delicate woodland native.
The grape hyacinths are out in full force
It works so well when planted with daffodills or alongside pink moss phlox. Unfortunately, I’m always fighting the grass that grows in the phlox.
A very pretty hosta unfurling its leaves.
The first of my tulips.
hmmm. Perhaps spring is far enough along where I can finally clean out the leaf mulch I use for winter protection.
If the rain holds off tomorrow, I’ll be able to get more done.
