Last night I took a few shots of what's blooming in our garden beds right now. Remember all those bulbs I planted in the Fall? Here are those same spots now (with some side by side comparisons).
|Before cleaning out & planting|
|After and look how much bigger the pansies are|
There were also some pleasant surprises from the previous owners. The bed below is one that is at the end of the driveway. Sadly, the tree trunk you can see if that of a dead dogwood. I wouldn't let the Mister cut it down until I made sure it didn't come back in the Spring. It was brown in July, but I was hoping that it was just in drought shock. Sadly, we'll have to cut it down. I will probably put another one in there or a Japanese Maple.
|Other things you can spot in this picture: There may be lilies, the fact that I need to weed (just put mulch in the Thursday before vacation!), the white blooming azaleas at the other end of the yard AND the grass we planted in late October.|
|Things are a little bigger, and the basil obviously doesn't make it thru winter around here|
