Spring has Sprung

Spring has Sprung
This is the time of year when I usually am walking around our yard thinking of all the gardening that needs to be done before the spring flowers and perennials start to come up.  Too Late!  The daffodils and hyacinth are almost done; the tulips are up and thinking about opening.  

 Our weeping cherry tree was all done blooming before April 1.  

 It is crazy.   
Our butterfly bush is going crazy already.  I can’t wait to see all the butterflies.   

The hosta’s are up about six inches.   

We built our house about 21 years ago.  We did all the landscaping ourselves.  My husband worked in a lawn and garden store when he was in high school.  He is very knowledgeable about plants, soil types, fertilizers and where things should be planted. 
 I’m more of an idea person.  
 He gets a little nervous when I wake up in the morning and say-
“I had this great dream about a flower garden!”   
That usually means he will be doing some landscaping.   
The last dream I had was our hosta garden around the deck! 
Our gardens are not perfectly manicured; we are going more with the “natural” look.   
We enjoy all the flowers and plants, sitting on the deck with a glass of wine 
and listening to the birds and frogs in the woods.   
We live in a very peaceful place.

I love seeing what you have blooming! So sad that weeping cherries can't just last a little bit longer. So gorgeous but for way too short of time. I feel this way about our magnolia and the forsythia as well!!!
