Spring Clean Up

I spent the weekend cleaning up the garden beds of last years growth, as I left a lot of it up over the winter so the yard wouldn't look so bare. From the clean-up I was able to discover many plants with new growth already.

I keep a garden journal of each year's growth, and found that last year, new growth for many plants didn't appear until the middle of April. This year, with the 50 degree weather, I found the following plants peeking out:
  • Peonies
  • Yarrow
  • Hostas
  • Black Eyed Susan
  • Alliums
  • Tulips, Daffodils, Hyacinth
  • Iris
  • Helenium
  • Bachelor Button
  • Sedum

Now, let's just hope the bunnies don't have a buffet dinner with my plants!
