Start of Gardening Season 2019

I spent some time yesterday doing some yard work. We had a rough, windy winter and our trees bore the brunt of it. There were branches, big and small, scattered all through the yard… some fairly big, some tiny… but they still needed to be collected so the lawn tractor doesn’t have to deal with them.

I filled the little trailer for the lawn tractor to overfilling lol… it was a lot of work but it just means we are getting closer and closer to gardening season.

I am trying to think of a different way to have my veggie garden this year. The felt portable pots worked fairly well last year but they have disintegrated over the winter. Right now I am weighing my options!

While I was out there I decided to take some pictures. My lilac bushes are so close to blooming…. my favourite flowers! I absolutely love the smell of lilac… so much that I have found cleaning products that smell just like them!

Here is a picture of my lilac starting to bloom.

Right now my Forsythia is in full bloom. The yellow flowers are always a nice bright reminder that Spring has arrived… albeit a wet and sometimes cold Spring lol!

Leroy, our Redbone Coonhound decided behind the Forsythia was the perfect place to hide from the big scary lawn tractor lol… he doesn’t like the sound of it!

My Tiger Lilies are starting to sprout up in all the gardens. I took this picture in the front yard of them starting to come up around the old tractor we have as garden “art!”

This last picture is just one I took when I was sitting on the lawn tractor taking a break, enjoying the beautiful day we had… well, most of yesterday and milder weather!

Welcome Spring!!!
