Trying Some New Things

I am trying something new this time.  I saved the ends of celery and lettuce.  I heard that they will regrow.  Well, I am putting them to the test.

Mark dug out some good compost from the bins..farmer's gold...and I added it to every inch of the garden.  And there is still a wheelbarrow full.  Good and rich with lots of worms.

I also planted some Creasy Greens for the ladies at Wyngate.  I have never heard of them but they promise me if I can grow them I will love them  So we will see.

We Have A Rainbow In The Yard

Only half od the dogwood is alive.  The other half is alive with color.

Clematis are my favorites...but I say that about all the flowers when they first bloom.

These weren't there this morning.


This just snuck up on me!  The first day I saw just a little two-inch stalk.  Two days later this is what I found this.

Double daffodil

Our only tulip.

A surprise bloom on the 'stem' on the snowflake magnolia.

My favorite spring blood...red bud.

It looks like a tree full of cotton candy.
