After all the snow we had earlier this year, followed by a few rainy weekends, the precipitation seems to have stopped. It's supposed to rain today, though, and I hope it does, because we used the last of the water in our rain barrels yesterday and had to move the hose to the house spigot to finish the job.
Most of our veggies survived the transplant from house to garden, but they aren't really thriving. I'll have to do some research to see what's going on. But we must be doing something right. The man with the best looking lawn on the street stopped Shane as he was driving by to tell him that our yard is really coming along in a hurry this year.
Thanks neighbor, who lives in the yellow house across the street and nine houses up! Sorry, but we don't even know your name.
Sheila had requested I post another picture of our red bud tree after it leafed out. It hasn't quite started to get leaves, but here it is at is floral peak a few days ago.
Here is our little white bud we planted late last summer. It has a lot of blossoms for such a small tree.
And here's our crab apple. When we moved in four years ago, it was barely as tall as the gutters. Now it's well above the roof line.
We also have two small dogwoods that we planted last year. They only have about 10 blossoms each, but they will be so pretty when they are bigger. I think dogwoods are probably my favorite ornamental trees. We also have a golden rain tree, but it doesn't get it's blossoms until late spring or early summer.
