    The pic of the front in bloom is last summer.. so within a month or two it should look just like that again. I can't plant anything else.. I don't have any room.. lol Those ornamental grasses get huge one gets as high as the house.. also in there.. black eyed susans, hydrageas, sage, lavender, and other things I can't remember right now.

    Oh wow, cool. It's going to be beautiful.
    So maybe there's hope for my twigs in the dirt.

    Yup Georgie is a cool bunny.

    Wow HMR what a difference. How beautiful. I hope you'll take more pictures as we get more growth. I know I will.

    JKM you have a lovely yard and I can't wait to see some more growth.

    I have just spent 3 hours covering the plants in our yard. We are expecting a freeze for the next 4 days - hello this is Georgia!! It's the middle of April, every thing is growing, we even got a new fish for the pond and now it's cold again.

    bummer

    when the black plastic comes off next week, and if anything lives through this freeze I'll take pictures.

    My favorite flower is the camilla but most of them have already fallen off.

    Aw GaPeach hope everything warms up for you. I know the feeling, we're still pretty cold this way too. Can't put anything out yet and the perennials are coming up slowly.

    This weekend I'm ripping out the ferns that still look like dead twigs; the other half of the front bed is actually getting green so these slackers are getting the HOE!

    I ummm sort
    missed two days of watering my babies in the greenhouse... they look very deadish... so I drowned them hoping the damage isn't complete.
