Everything Is Waking Up
My azaleas are starting to bloom.Azaleas are one of my favorite plants. I love the burst of color that they give you in a shrubbery bed and they're easy to grow.
My Hostas have exploded over the past week. I have several planted in this particular shrubbery bed. They get huge with beautiful lavender blooms during the summer. My day lily pictured on the left is coming to life too.
I love my dogwood. It not only has religouos signifance for me, but it's such a beautiful tree. I had 2, white and pink. I lost the white one several years and never replaced it. Now that I'm adding additional bed, I think I may replace it now. The tree actually does quite well in my soil.
My Bradford Pear is shaping up nicely. I had it cut back several years ago, so this is the most blooms that it has had for a while. So far I'm pleased with everything that's blooming.
I'm amazed at how much my lilies have grown over the past few weeks. We've had a lot of rain in the month of April, the plants thirst has been quenched for sure.
This is a picture of some of my lilies from last summer.I'll be cutting back shrubs this week-end and edging the borders so we can lay fresh mulch. We'll finally going to have a week-end of sunshine!
