Sunday garden helpers

March 30, 2014

Lexie and Tristan enjoy this beautiful Sunday, even though it’s another day of yard chores — the annual spring fertilizing and irrigation system tune-up.  Not fun for humans, but lots of fun for dogs.

Many of our plants are attempting to recover from the late season ice storm several weeks ago.  The freak storm cost us dearly and we lost 3 trees.   Which prompted us to plant 5 new ones, in addition to the 3 we planted in February.

.

Current blooming garden friends include my favorite autumn sage salvia, treeform hawthorn (majestic), spirea, and supertunia.  Blue spires salvia and yellow sedum will be blooming by next week.

.

Many more to follow after that.  Keeping a blooming yard is crazy hard work.  Gardening magazines make it look ridiculously easy.  They lie.  But I keep hoping for the gardening gods to deliver a miracle.

 

Hope you are enjoying your weekend & thank you for dropping by!

    The weather has really been beautiful the last few days. It’s so wonderful to see everything come back to life. Your pictures are lovely! Your “babies” look so content.

    I too love my sage salvia. It’s a non-stop bloomer. I have a big one in the backyard and it greets me with color all summer long. I too am learning that all that color comes with back-breaking work. It’s not easy, I agree. But your yard is so beautiful it seems worth it!
