March 23rd. A beautiful sunny day. Still snow patches and soggy ground, but I took the first walk around.
The magnolia trees have lots of buds.
The tall grasses are always a challenge to clean up.
Every barberry bush has been trimmed down. The prickliest shrub, but it’s one of the few not sprayed or covered.
(Sprayed with Scoot or covered with burlap.)
The Spireas are all efficiently pruned by the rabbits, too. But these plants don’t seem to mind a good cutting back.
And the snowdrops are peeking out!
I have started seedlings under lights again. All flowers this year. Looking forward to a cutting garden. A few other ideas in the dreaming and planning stage. Here’s hoping for a great gardening season ahead!
