With the warm weather and the 10 day forecast, I think we can safely say that winter is over and I better start moving on the garden. It rained last night and the garden is ripe for some attention. I started weeding last week and hope to get some more pulled tomorrow. I am also already thinking that it might be time for mulch since some of the soil is looking a little bare. There is lots to look at in the garden now!
My Barr’s Purple Crocuses that I planted last fall are up. They caught me off guard because their leaves are quite small so I didn’t see them until they started blooming last week. They are suppose to be squirrel resistant (we will see!).
My daffodils are also in full swing and will probably peak this week. I am hoping that they don’t wilt too quick with the warm weather. The lungwort (Pulmonaria Saccharata ) are a good 2-3 weeks ahead of last year.
Additionally a LOT of my plants have sprouted. With the mild winter it is looking good for most of plants surviving (if not thriving).
Goals for the garden in the next week: weed, mulch, pull out the ivy in the hedge, pull out miscellaneous vinca and pachysandra. It is a little wet today and I don’t feel like getting to soggy, but I am hoping by tomorrow I can really get in there with the kids (who really enjoy pulling out the weeds).
What is blooming in your yard?
*This is my first time joining the monthly Bloom Day at Carol’s May Dreams Gardens. It is quite interesting to see what is blooming in other people’s gardens all around the world! I recommend stopping by Carol’s May Dreams Gardens to see the list of all of this month’s participants.
