First signs of spring.
Well, I planted about 400 bulbs last fall in my new front garden (moved to the house last september)
Anyway, funny how I think of the garden as all being West Facing, but obviously the sun is not that narrow minded. On the far south side, the snow is long gone, and little green and red nubs are appearing everywhere! I had to go out and peel off the burlap I laid down with peat to try and thwart the squirrels last fall and protect the roses. I was worried if they came up any more, removing the burlap would rip off the new shoots! Not what anyone would want.
But... as you move north along the garden (still west facing), the ground gets progressively frosty, until it is frozen solid and under 2 feet of snow!
I have a feeling I am going to have domino blooms in the spring, they are going to start blooming on one side, and work their way north in a chain reaction!!
