My chores included weeding the 2 strawberry beds. Forgot to take a “before” photo, but got this “after” shot of one bed. Yes, we already have some blossoms.Most of the daffodil blooms are quickly fading, but there was still a variety in the front and back gardens.
We have 2 forsythia bushes in full bloom. The forsythia plant is native to China and is named is named in honor of William Forysth, director of the Chelsea Physic Garden in 1770 and one of the founders of the Royal Horticultural Society.
Dandelions continue to bloom and are now going to the familiar seed puff balls.Peach blossoms are in the orchard and Grenville is already talking about peach pie recipes, peach cobbler . . .Some other early blooms around the F&P include vinca, grape hyacinth, lily of the valley, wild violet and candytuft.Scores of robins have been seen in and around the yard, perhaps checking out possible nesting locations. There’s a vacancy in the cedar tree out front.
How was YOUR weekend?
