Out of hibernation I am!

"Hyacinthus orientalis 'Delft Blue' "
After a long white winter, I am emerging from my sluggishness, as well as my Spring blooms.

"Narcissus 'King Alfred' Daffodil"

I haven't really been sleeping every minute of the past few months, but didn't have the interest to post on snow or more snow. Who wants to see a picture of all white?

I have been busy with indoor projects, some painting, some upholstery, some ridding of household items. The real fun starts now though!

"Hyacinthus orientalis 'Splendid Cornelia' "

I did start a lot of seeds this winter and have many sprouting at last. Some heirloom tomatos, Jasione, Coneflower, Sweet Peas, Ageratum, Lavender, and many others. I don't really have any space to plant them anywhere, most of my beds were pretty full by last fall. Luckily we have nearly 4 acres, so plenty of room to expand!

"Hens n Chicks" A perfect circle

I have been outside in our wonderful 60-70 degree weather cutting back perennials, pulling dead annuals, dividing, and moving plants already. So much to do and already lots of weeds that need pulled.

Do Dandelions ever stop growing???
