Signs up Life

Here are some signs of life at our place...

Daffodils were blooming a few weeks ago. I felt guilty that so many of my friends were still buried in snow!


Our rock garden is really starting to fill in and look more mature. The plants that we put in last year are spreading out and blooming nicely. Denis picked out some new ones that we'll get to see more from next year. I'm imagining how this area will look in another two years.

Our little "courtyard" with siberian and pacific coast iris is getting ready to do it's thing. The flox on this side of the walk looks great! But the other side has a bald spot in the middle.
I love the color combo on these tulips and their pointy blooms.

This is our garlic that we planted last fall! It will be ready for harvest in June, I believe. Isn't it pretty? I love garlic, so I'm looking forward to having "home grown". MMmmmm....


And this is our newest addition. A baby japanese maple. The leaves come out red in the spring, turn green for the summer and then back to red before they come off in the fall. It should be very pretty.

You are quite the gardeners - I am impressed.

When we get a garden I know who I will have to call on for help :)

Love the tulips and garlic - very cool.

It's beautiful! I am a little jealous, but summer is coming. I just put away my ice scrapers I hope I won't need them anymore.

Your gardens are coming along very nicely. Very pretty.

I think I just may have my husband sold on raised beds this year. Now if I can only corral him for a little assistance...
