Easter Sunday

April 24, 2011

It was a beautiful day to celebrate Easter.  I was outside much of the day.  I enjoyed seeing the turtles, beaver, and swans at Lake Katherine on my walk today.

White Narcissus

The serviceberry was in bloom.  It has not grown much the past two years, but maybe it will take off this year….

There was a sale last week on the purchase of five Arborvitae  – Emerald Green.  We put them in last weekend to add a little winter interest in the shrub border, which is still a bit thin.

The Spice Bush has very tiny yellow flowers this time of year.  Last year we had to cut off branches that did not make it through the winter.  It is looking better this year and grew so much last year.

I saw this little guy looking cheery in the back corner of the garden.

    Looks like things are picking up outside. You’ll have more work to do without Dan around to help…

  2. Dan was home the weekend before this one and planted all the arborvitae. So I can’t complain! Next weekend he will need to mow the lawn, which is getting pretty long.
