Leafing Out

April 10, 2011

Although the Chinquapin Oak won’t have any leaves for a while, the over 80 degree weather helped to open up other leaves around the garden.

Common Lilac – the intricate buds that made it through the winter are now unfolding.

Crab Apple – Profusion

It was also a good day to get out the yard furniture and enjoy sitting outside for breakfast and lunch.

The rhubarb is coming on strong.

I love the feathery yarrow leaves.

I moved several plants today.  This patch of dianthus (pinks) I just picked up from its old spot, roughed up the ground a bit, stamped it down in its new place and gave it lots of water.  We will see if it takes root and blooms this year.

When I woke up this morning I was surprised to see this Mallard in the yard.  Later I saw the female fly out of the neighbor’s yard.
