|A lone tulip!|
|Loads of hostas popping up all over the yard - one of my favorite plants!|
So far I have been able to spot a number of lilies and hostas that are fighting to reclaim their space in the garden, along with several columbine plants. There are also a number of unidentified plants that are making an appearance - unfortunately not knowing what they are makes it hard for me to do the right thing when caring for them!
|What are you, mystery flower?! I didn't even notice this in the garden last summer, the area was so overrun with weds!|
|Last summer I thought this odd little plant was a weed but I left it alone. It happened to be the first plant to pop-up and flower this spring...what is it?!|
In the coming weeks I plan on cleaning up the front and back flowerbeds even more, while throwing down more soil and adding a few new plants here and there. Lucky for me, there are far more healthy plants in the yard than I initially thought, which means less for me to buy and plant! But since the snow has left us it has become clear that the front lawn will need a healthy dose of grass seed and fertilizer. Work here is never done!
