I’m going to try to do this once a week all summer, we spend a lot of time in the garden & it’s neat to see how fast things grow.
Ornamental crab apple
Peonies (the ants love these, see them crawling on the buds?)
The lilac is rather pale this year but the photo isn’t great as it’s awfully overcast this morning.
Last renegade bloom on one of the two baby nectarine trees.
Bambi & whole extended family has been munching on my day lilies (this is at the corner of my new flower garden bed but as the rest is just dirt I’ll spare you more photos until the newly planted seeds come up).
These little violet/viola/whatever things are weeds here but they’re so delicate & pretty. We’re having a banner dandelion crop too, lol…
We’ve already picked some asparagus, these spears are ready too.
Hydrangea starting to green up.
Caught the first open azaleas.
Warm spot along the house is hosting the first tomato experiment, just an early girl we got at the farmers market last weekend.
2 wks in the ground for the broccoli & cabbage (transplants from the nursery). I’m not walking out there, we’ve had a TON of rain the last few weeks.
The onions look great!
No clue what the pale pink blooming tree is right outside the back door.
Even the pin oak is starting to leaf.
More of my favorite “weeds.”
We don’t have any daffodils or crocus so here’s the obligatory hosta pic!
And the first of my personal favorites, my lilies are up! This is a Black Bird, an Asiatic Lily. I have 5 or 6 peeking up (some other varieties too) and need to hit the nursery for more soon.
