I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

What a Difference A Week Makes!

I was hoping I would have more to share today - but we have had two snowstorms which slowed down the growth of our spring flowers.

What a Difference a Week Makes!
My First Daffodils

I took this picture a week ago today. I see yellow ready to pop. Woo Hoo!


This is Today Same flowers - Daffodils are the most amazing flowers!

These are "Snow on the Mountain" popping through in the side yard - All over my yard I have all kinds of green things doing this! WOO HOO!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of my favorite tree's in the yard is the my blue and glass Bottle Tree! It is in the play yard and next to the Fairy Garden. It is pretty scuffed from winter - but I wanted to share it with you today - needs to be cleaned and straightened, but what a fun little tree to see out my window all winter long.

Just a little more snow to melt
I also did my first fertilizing of all my perenials this morning...spring is really here.
Be sure and stop by http://www.maydreamsgardens.com/ to see lots more gardens from everywhere! So fun to see all the different stages different parts of the world are in right now.

Being from Southern California, daffodils don't make the same anticipated appearance out here. What a true promise of spring.

Spring is getting ready, isn't it? My daffodils are starting to have buds, too. I can hardly wait.

G'Day Paula, Thanks for dropping by. Your garden is looking full of spring promise.
It does get cold here but we rarely have snow. although it can be seen from here, like icing sugar on top of the Brindabella mountains near here (surrounding Canberra) in winter.

I like your bottle tree. I imagine your daffodils have blooms now. Mine opened quickly once they looked like yours. I hope spring weather is here to stay for both of us.

Thanks for visiting my blog for FF.
