The earth awakens

The weather this weekend was spectacular – and so, per usual, I spent most of it outside. I got quite a bit done – got the sidewalk edged, lawn & parking strip mown, some weeds pulled, marigolds planted, a soaker house laid out in one bed, a bag of mulch spread, and six bags of rubber mulch put down in the veggie garden walkway.
Everywhere I looked, the beds are waking up and flowers are blooming. The hostas and ferns are filling nicely, and the bleeding heart is in full bloom.

The early flowers (like the daffs) are past their prime, but I still have a few tulips up.

There are flowers on the blueberry bushes.

And the potatoes are several inches high.

The dogwood and lilac are in full bloom, and just gorgeous.

About wonkydonkey

You want random? You got it. Mostly knitting and gardening, with some home improvements, pets, baking, family, and the occasional bad joke thrown in for good measure. This blog is mine; it is a place where I can insist upon proper grammar or break my own rules and degrade into slang on a whim. Either way, it's still mine. I love the Internet.
