Early Spring Flowers

April 12, 2012

Flowers are blooming and trees are leafing out in Michigan, and with the upcoming week of warm weather I expect to see some more blooms. Along with the flowers  the bees, mosquitos and that mysterious thing that lives in the hole in my backyard have all woken up. Also, I need to check on my Dahlia shipment, which should be on its way soon.

I will make my first trip to the farmers market this Saturday to pick up some cold-hardy greens to get the vegetable garden going. All of this warm weather means it’s time to take down the few storm windows that we have….which is really out of the order for things since we already had to mow the lawn. Tulips blooming before daffodils is backwards too. What a strange Spring it has been.

Here is what has been happening in the garden the last few weeks:

Red bud tree
