garden notes

It was so lovely to come back from vacation and be greeted by the hints of green buds wisping through the landscape on the trees as well as the daffodils and flowering trees. My crabapples are about to bloom, the calary pears are in full bloom and some of the early rhododendrons are blooming.

When we left the buds were barely visible. One week later it's a startling change and one that is very welcome.

I've been out in the garden today and plan to get back out there again in just a little bit. Weeding, weeding, weeding. The grass, dandelions, ground ivy and bedstraw have certainly started to make their presence known. But I'm not complaining because I'm enjoying being out there and definitely enjoying the weather.
