It's Spring!

Well it's been a while since I last posted. Let's face it, winter is not my favorite time of the year with the exception of Christmas and my annual ski trip to Colorado. Not much going on the the garden, so I tend to get a little lazy about posting particularly when I don't have a whole lot to talk about, or at least find interesting in the winter. Anyway, "Spring has Sprung" and I'm starting to get excited again. The last few weeks have been spent cleaning beds, pruning, putting down new straws, cleaning out and starting up the water features.


                                          The daffodils and Tulips were spectacular this year. 





The Lady Jane Tulips came back for the third year. I started out with 25 bulbs and I estimate the number has doubled.


.
The Lady Banksia Rose has engulfed the Little Jem Magnolia and looks like a cascading yellow tree.



Christopher Lloyd states that if you have weeds in your flower beds you  haven't  planted enough plants. Obviously, I am failing miserably in this endeavor. After weeding, the bed look very bare ( Note the large pile of weeds in the background.)  It had doubled in size after finishing the beds in the side yard. Apparently I have a definite talent for growing weeds!



I'm excited that Spring is here finally and look forward to seeing how the garden evolves and changes in the coming months.
