First Garden Work Day of 2011!!!!
I was able to get out in the garden today for the first work day of the year.
The snow is mostly gone.
Bulbs are starting to pop up.
I always leave my perennials and grasses over the winter. Today is one of the reasons why I do this. After a long, snowy winter I want to get in the garden and work but here in New England we start Spring with Mud Season. The ground is saturated from the melting snow. So I can scratch that gardening itch by cutting back the dead plant matter.
And Aster October Skies
See the new Aster October Skies peeking up?
Good thing I removed last year's growth before this got too big!
But I still have a ways to go.
Three days till Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Will I have any outside blooms?
These overwintered pansies don't look ready to go yet.
Maybe this Hellebore
Most likely these crocus.
Hurray for crocus!
