I haven't accomplished all that I want to with my yard this year but we get a little done at a time. We've planted a few Aspen trees and some pepper and tomato plants. The most spectacular Spring I've ever experienced was at my farmhouse in PA. That yard was was like a jungle and something new was always blooming all the way until late summer. I sure miss that place but I'm thankful to experience something new. This is our first Spring at our new home in Colorado and it sure has kept us on our toes. It's always a waiting game to see what will pop up and where.
Tulips have been the main flower popping up in our yard. They've even been coming up in the rocks. I'm going to have to figure out how to separate them. Any advice? I wasn't sure if this should be done in the fall and how I would remember where they all were. We've had a few other surprise flowers make appearances too.
And we've got some lovely blooming trees, including one crab apple.
Much to our surprise we also have an established strawberry patch. Unfortunately it's not filling out and I'm not sure if it's because the dogs keep walking over it or because it might need some more filler plants. It's so exciting to see the plants bloom!
On Mother's Day of all days. The day they say in Colorado is finally safe to starting planting.
The next post I'll share what's been happening since the snow. I'll share my favorite place that I get out in nature regularly. This place helps me stay sane living in a neighborhood and city.
