It's Happening...

Things are starting to happen. There are sprouts and buds everywhere!! And, the grass is starting to dry out and turn green. And, I am starting to notice all the work that there is to do.

This week I hope to:
1-Shovel the rest of the snow piles around so they melt.
2-Rake the grass.
3-Clean up the branches, berries, and mess from windy winter weather.
4-Rip out front planters and replace with new ones. (My mother-in-law) bought me huge beautiful planters for my birthday!
5-Start ripping out garden at back to re-build and make room for my peonies and sweet peas.
6-Move and fix the composter.
7- Pull the BBQ out and have a delicious BBQ burger!

Here is some pictures of the fresh new growth in the garden. My crocuses were flowering this morning, but when I went to take a picture, they were closed up. Hopefully I can catch them tomorrow!


I think these are day lilies of some kind.

Rhubarb - 1 of 2 plants in my yard. I do not know what I am going to do with it all.

This is the garden I am going to dig out. I do not like any of the stuff in it anyways. Basically, I am going to turn it into a rectangle. I plan to put a peony where the roundish mound is right now, and grow sweet peas up the rails of the porch. And, maybe some other perennials - but I am not sure yet.


I cannot wait for the leaves to bud!

Looks like things are starting to happen! Lucky you! You're further ahead than we are in the maritimes. Cheers!

Hey Breanne! I can't believe you're still shoveling snow! At least things are starting to wake up for you. Isn't it fun looking at a blank space and seeing what it will look like once you've gotten ahold of it? I completely understand.
Oh, by the way, I can't remember if I properly thanked you for adding us to your blogroll. Just in case, here's another big Thank You!-Jen :)

your very welcome Jen!

yeah - and it was snowing HUGE flakes this morning when I got up this morning - I couldn't believe it. It was melted before lunch, but still - it's april 10!

Our yard is just starting the Spring wakeup like yours. Well before the snow today. Good news is that is should be gone in a couple of days.

I've still got rhubarb on my list of plants to acquire for the garden. Maybe this year...
