It has been raining a lot, which has been frustrating me to no end because I can't get outside to plant my annuals. I even lost a few annuals, they died in their pots, because I waited too long to plant them. That is why I don't like to buy too early, but I have to, or there is nothing left in the greenhouses. It's a game I play every single year. I really wish the greenhouses would not open so early. Technically, we can't even plant outside till May 31st as that is our last known frost date.
All but one of my crab apple trees were GORGEOUS this year. I could not believe the blooms on this white one. But sadly, another one didn't do well at all and it looks like we might lose it. If we do, this will be the second crab apple tree we've lost since we bought our house 20 years ago. These trees are touchy! It makes me so sad to lose a crab apple. Why do all the pretty trees have to be the most sensitive?
My tulips especially turned out great this year. I'm wondering if it's because of the record snowfall we had? They were certainly well insulated buried under four feet of snow.
I was so happy to see how well this little crab apple tree bloomed this year. We almost lost this tree when bunnies or deer decided to eat at its trunk. But somehow, suckers came up after the tree died, and my husband protected the suckers with chicken wire and it eventually grew into this beauty. Can you believe it?
I love Bleeding Hearts but they are becoming a nuisance to me. They reseed EVERYWHERE! They have become like weeds in my garden. I'm constantly pulling them up. If anyone needs any Bleeding Heart plants, come and get em!

A few years ago I dug up and divided a lot of Grape Hyacinth bulbs and spread them through out my garden. It was a lot of work, as there were a lot of tiny bulbs, but it really paid off as I have spots of this beautiful blue plant scattered everywhere in my yard.

I hope you enjoyed touring my spring garden!
Have A Great Day! Amy
