Spectacular Spikes & Sprays of #Spring Color in the #Garden

With all the rain and cold overcast days it has been difficult to do work in the garden this year so far.  On the bright side the rain barrels are constantly full! We had major damage to some of our large shrubs due to wind, the frozen ground, and the early thaws. Many of them suffered horrible dehydration during those periods. Most are pulling through, but two of our hollies are not and our large Rhody in the back was badly damaged. I don’t know if she’ll survive or not, but she is trying.

Now that we are having regular sunny days I’m making lots of headway and everything is reaching an equilibrium. Some things are arriving a bit early and others are a bit late. Only about half my tulips bloomed. I have a fair number of bees visiting, but nothing to write home about. Robins have made a nest in the wisteria again, so it will be nice to watch a whole new generation be born, take flight, and make their way in the world. All the veggies are planted and most of the annuals are where they need to be. Another week or two and everything will we were I want them to be in the larger scheme of things. Enjoy the photos!
