Everything is really popping here. I took several pictures in the past week and before I’ve had time to post, everything has changed.
Last year I posted an iris count. Not sure I’ll do that this year, but will show you what’s blooming.
But before I do that, yesterday was Demo Days at the Master Gardeners’ Display Garden. There were four classes including the one hubby taught on growing veggies in Southwestern Indiana. It was a cold and rainy day, but wasn’t too bad in the cabin.
Check out his planters of lettuce. We’ve been eating lots of it including lunch today!
Here are two of my irises that are blooming.
This is always the first one to appear. It’s a dwarf.
Last year Kris, my master gardener friend, gave me several dwarfs for my collection. This is Cat’s Eye.
For the past week and a half I’ve been picking asparagus every day. We sure have been enjoying it.
The blueberries are really doing great this year. The one that Ike uprooted has finally come back. If the weather cooperates we will have a great harvest.
I’m real excited about the cherries this season. We have an old tree that came with the house and then we planted three. One of the three we planted died and the other two have been growing slowly. Anyway, one of the two is full of blossoms. Can’t wait!
Then Dave planted two Pawpaw trees.
Outside my window is this beautiful ornamental Kwanzan cherry tree.
And then the old fashion lilac.
Around the front of the house are the tulips that the deers have left alone. Maybe they don’t like white!
The hostas look beautiful this time of the year. Then in July I’m ready to pull them all out!
Within a week I won’t be able to see this cat. They grow so fast and so large.
Then inside nothing much has changed – well, maybe! Sidd and Puddin rarely sit together, but here they are. Puddin doesn’t look too happy.
And Shel loves to sleep on this toy when she’s not pacing the kitchen for food and/or attention.
Well, that’s all for now. Don’t you just love spring?
Like I said to your husband, I just can’t believe that we are supposed to be in the same zone. Your gardens are well ahead of us here!
Boy, our cats do have the life…don’t they?? I am happy to hear that you too have a kit-kat that constantly begs for attention 🙂
Robin, It really seems that our zone is shifting or as Dave says “creeping.” Yes, Shel is really a pest. She never sleeps or rarely does compared to the other two and she’s so much older than Puddin! But she’s my Shelly!
Love seeing what is growing for others-great photos. Your hostas look really healthy, I love the variegated ones. Pretty cats too.
Bev, I also love seeing what’s growing other places. Those hostas are pretty now, but come July they will really look bad. I’ve dug a lot of them up since there were way too many in the front. I do like the look now and even planted one in another bed in the front yesterday. Thanks for dropping by.
Lovely spring photos! The asparagus really looks yummy and the blueberries and appletree looks so promising as well 🙂
