Back in the Garden Again

Dear Mr. or Mrs. Seattle Washington... you keep coming in on this page, and thinking I haven't added anything (yes I know I'm a nut for making this edit) so click HERE to go to the blog's front page ;) I feel bad that you keep coming back - thinking I'm too lame to update!

We finally got those azaleas in the ground this evening. They probably won't bloom this year, but the way we've planted them, they'll be beautiful when they do. The back patio will b surrounded in colorful flowers. The Daffodils have faded past their prime, and what I thought were crocus when we planted the bulbs are something else entirely. . . I have no idea what, but they're beautiful. The foliage looks like crocus, but the flowers are dainty little purple bells that hang about 10 per plant - really very nice, but I can't seem to identify them.

I have Irises planted around the fence row and around the parking pad. Some of the Iris plants are about 4 feet tall, but the blooms are feeling stubborn. The cala lilies though, they're in a rush, all bursting out of the ground they're interspersed between the Iris out back. . . can't wait till they all bloom.

I think the rose bush will remain dormant this year -- poor thing. But the Dogwood was gorgeous today. The front bushes are finally bushing... damn clover though, I'll have to get some spray, they've overwhelmed me and my ability to pull. Actually, I need to get some fertilizer. All this clover means there's too much nitrogen. Cripes what a pain.

The lawn, which is mostly clover, with a spattering of onion, is halfway up to my knee. Time to crank the mower up. God I love Spring!

I've got to get some film.

    Weeding my garden allows my dreams to bear fruit

    Somehow a Heiku seemed fitting.
