As you can see the tulips are just starting to bloom. We are having a late start due to the record snowfall this year - over 11 feet down the hill. - Not a record I ever hope to see again or even get close to. Looking out the window this winter you could not tell I had a fence. The fence is 6 feet tall. I am hoping that my vines will bounce back. We had some pretty bad storms and 2 of my 4 trellises fell over damaging several plants and trees. I hope to have better pictures once the flowers start to come in. I have Clematis, Hops, Kiwi, and Rhodochiton growing on various structures in the yard.
Forget-Me-Nots and Poppy's in bloom - Hosta and Iris are beginning to emerge.
Viticella Venosa (purple)& Markhams (pink) Clematis
I cant remember the name but it is the only one the moose did not eat. Grrrr (shade garden) The front yard is not fenced so I am frequently at odds with the moose.
One of my favorite shade plants - the leaves stay spotted all season.
More flowers in the shade garden
With all of this cooler weather that I love so much....(I love the sun and heat) I have been able to get a few more indoor projects out of the way. I find it hard to weed when it is cold, windy and cloudy. I will need to force myself to weed otherwise the horrid horse tails are going to win.
Top of quilt for twin size bed.
I am hoping for warmer temperatures and sunshine this week.
