Friday Garden Update

Well, it’s been awhile. My last Friday Garden Update was on February 22nd here. And that was more like a snow update! When I go back through my media folder I see so many bright photos from last year that I’m filled with hope of another colorful summer!

Howard cleared the garden with the exception of last year’s kale that held strong through the winter!  Amazing. The aphids that haunted us last year are gone so I’m looking forward to trying some of our garden kale for the first time.

Our forsythia is in full bloom as of this week too. I made an effort to cut back this bush several times last year in hopes that the flowers would be more concentrated than they were last year (here).  And it worked!

In fact, this garden is update is almost the same as the one from last April 6th. Because of the long winter things are just blooming a little later.

And this spring I am making a promise to myself that I will learn how to use my camera.  It was over a year ago that I got my new Nikon here.  And I admit that I still shoot in auto mode most of the time!

What’s blooming in your yard?

Have a great weekend everyone!
