Spring Is Here

Well, after a week of witnessing nature's fury with the Nor'easter and subsequent flooding, there's a calm in the weather and a fireball in the sky. I do believe it's called "the sun." It's apparently going to be up there for a few days in a row this week. Imagine that.

Random garden notes:

The deer ate the crocus but the daffodils, of course, were spared. Now, if they could just create daffodils that look like tulips, we'd have it all.

The glory of the snow flowers are up all over the yard. Makes me feel guilty for not raking out the woods since there are so many in there peeking up from under the brown leaves. Let's see...I've correctly identified the sneaky weed that took over my flower garden last year...haha! You're not a flower, not a flower! It shall be evicted forthwith.

I got dirty in the gardens this weekend, digging up raspberry bushes (again) that still want to live in my veggie garden. I chopped down some thicket and burr-bushes near the road and planted what should be a lovely berry hedge...for the deer to nibble on. Sigh.

Got half the veggie garden turned over...planted pansies by the mailbox, added mulch to that (OK, it was only a square yard of mulch, but it's inspiration to mulch the 100 or so square yards in the other gardens).

I think two of the three baby birch trees my friend gave us last fall will make it. One is destined for kindling.

Hurrah Spring - finally!

I already know that I'm going to have deer issues here in Pittsburgh, as well. That and rocky soil!

Remember about the rocky soil...if you have to pick-axe it...wear protective eye goggles! lol. I'm not kidding - I broke two pick-axes one year...sigh.

Good luck and happy Spring!
