A taste of real spring

lilosophieApril 8, 2014

The crab-apple is blooming, finally blooming, usually it does that by the middle of March. Blooms on it and the pear-trees are not as heavy because of the long dry past year, but the bees are sure busy - think it's our neighbor's honey bees - good news.
The madrone if just opening and the lilac not far behind it's a loverly time.

Daffodils in my front yard about 15 minutes ago! We have a long way to go.

How pretty, lilo.
Yes jim, they have a ways to go, but it looks like they have a good start.

I need some companion plants.

Are you adventurous? Plant something bold that will complement the house colors and dazzle the neighbors with your daring. Marigolds. They are simple to grow, needing little care. And, if you are cheap like me, you can save the flowers. Once they dry, you scatter them back into the bed!

The daffodils are blooming, also the forthytias and down the street and in the area the Bradford pears broke out since Monday, everything else early in the year most likely will show up next week, judging by the weather report. Lilo, your spring is prettier then mine.
I like the pictures from all of you, my front of the house looks bad. I finally got the invasive euyanimus bushes cut down, now we can repair the foundation. Don't know yet with what I will replace them.
