At Long Last

Posted on April 3, 2012. Filed under: Gardening, Home |

Sorry everyone! When things get crazy and there’s not enough time in the day to work and live life, the blog has to take a backseat. It’s been a few weeks – Adam and I have been very busy with work, yardwork and spending time with family and friends. I’ll be posting a couple of times in the next few weeks about what we’ve been up to. Don’t get too excited. We’re not that interesting…

But here’s some follow-up pictures to my previous post where I shared all the surprising things that we found blooming in our yard. Here’s the mid-spring blooms:

The Azaleas. They will be getting pruned & some much needed fertilizer once they’re finished blooming.

We have a Dogwood tree. I’ve always wanted one and didn’t know we had one!

Our beautiful cherry tree that we mistook for a birch. Sorry tree!

We were not too impressed with the blooms on our Weeping Dwarf Cherry tree. We may go all George Washington on it this fall and give it the ax.

Snowball blooms off our snowball bush. Adam wanted to cut it down before we knew what it was. I’m glad we didn’t get rid of it! Note our new fireplace screen in the background. It really adds a lot to our lodgey den!

That is all for now. I’ll be back with some updates on the following (hopefully):

  • Backyard improvements – ivy eradication, fescue seed, the state of the camellias, the slope makeover, and our new enemy, Virginia Creeper
  • Living Room progress – the stencil is DONE! picking out curtains and rods, “the furniture will get here someday” (my daily mantra)
  • Patio furniture – I’m hoping for this!
  • The hallway painting project
  • Planting around the mailbox
  • PUPPY!!! We’re getting a PUPPY in a few weeks! PUPPY!!!! I’m sure there will be posts about our new addition.
