I took a little walk around the yard to see how things were coming along and thought I'd post some pictures of all my pretties. (I shared this on my Green Girly blog but I thought I'd bring it and share it with you here as well!)
This is in our back lane, right by our tenants parking spot. It doesn't look to great right now but I'm hoping the plants will come in well soon. I think I may plant a few more things yet as well.
I was very excited to see my Larkspur come back. It's a pretty tender perennial so I wasn't too sure.
This one is huge!! Most of my Chicks & Hens are doing ok but this one is seriously happy!!
Here is my Larkspur a week later. I can't wait for all the flowers!
The ferns are happy, and coming up well! There are 5 of them! (There were only 3 when winter hit)
The strawberries and raspberries are doing great.
I made a little green house type planter. We'll see if it really helps out my squash!
My Clematis is coming in well. So far 3 more vines coming up then there were last year! It's nice to know what it is this year so I can care for it correctly!
This one is going crazy! It was tiny, did nothing all last spring and summer but after the snow was gone it was three times as big as it was before the snow! I've already taken pieces off and moved them here...
Three Flowering Aven. I can't wait until this fulls in, a lot! I love this plant!
Sour Cherry tree. It's didn't bloom last year, that was sad, so I was even more excited about spring when I saw these flowers.
This wild fern is going crazy, it's spreading all over, which is great cause that's what I wanted in this space.
My new little gnome. I was so excited when I found him and his brother. Only $2 too!
The Hydrangea I planted last year. If I'm lucky I'll get some flowers this year. I'm not holding my breath though.
The Peony I got for $2 because it seemed dead. Not dead at all and I'm so happy to see it's coming up and doing well!
My new tulips. They are so beautiful and bright!
I transplanted this bush last year, I wasn't too sure if it took but I prepped it super well and I'm so glad to see life some to the branches.
I moved some Lamb's Ear over. They're still pretty droopy but they'll pop back up yet.
Not too sure what these all are but I got them from a lady down the street that was splitting stuff up. I stopped to tell her how pretty her yard was and she gave me a few things! I love getting plants from ladies like that! They've been working on their yards for years and they're plants are so wonderful it's almost an honor to get something from them.
This is what the front yard looks like right now. Not all too exciting because there's a lot of new stuff in there and the leaves haven't filled out yet, but it's getting there. I just took out a big sad cedar on the left and I'm going to fill that space with another bush like the red tall one on the right and a peony bush. I'm excited to get it finished once and for all (but of course I'll always be playing around)
And this is my flower garden. Still not too exciting. I started it pretty late last year but things are growing so I can't wait to see it fill in and become vibrant with all the colors!
