Spring will be over in just a couple of weeks! Time is flying by!
Lots of photos to view in this set from the past two months.
Our Tulip Magnolia Tree did not make it through the winter, but the other shrubs that were badly damaged in the previous winter seem to be coming back nicely this spring. The annuals we planted a couple of weeks ago are beginning to take off in the baskets and containers. We chose to concentrate on lettuce, tomatoes and potatoes for things we eat from the garden and all those have had a strong start. I’ve been moving around many things in the garden and they all seem to be taking a liking to their new spaces. Lots of blooms this year and they are lasting a very long time.
I’ve been painting the picket fence pieces to replace the tired ones out front. I’m also staining the north side of the house and need to stain the box windows in front. We also just purchased some of the permanent fence for the back yard and I’ll start staining that and replace the worn temporary fence we’ve had up for the last ten years.
We started off with two full water cisterns. I ran out of water just before this past drenching rain. Back to two full cisterns and a half filled cistern! It’s been cool for the most part and I have loved that. It makes working outside easy. Hot temps are around the corner and I’m not looking forward to that at all. I am enjoying the longer days and I’m looking forward to the summer solstice.
Happy spring everyone!
