I had some time to look around in the yard yesterday. I think Spring may have sprung for a few days at least. We will have a few nice days and then at the end of the week we are back to 50 degrees again…plus it is supposed to rain all week.
They are back! We don’t eradicate them..their foliage is green. I love all yellow flowers! When I was a kid, the rule was you could not go barefoot until the Dandelions were out.
This is my Fern Leaf Peony “ Larry’s Kindness.” It made it through the winter and hopefully it will bloom this year! I will clip back last years stalks now that I know that it has survived.
If you look closely there are eight ..count them eight Yellow Lady Slipper shoots!! I will not remove the leaf duff yet, it provides badly needed insulation on cool frosty mornings. I suppose I should pull a few of those weeds and chop off that wild raspberry.
Some of the brush is starting to bud out in the woods. The tiny deer ticks are present in great numbers. Too bad the birds don’t eat them. I told Far Guy and Chance to go and buy some chickens, they could be chicken farmers for the summer. Chickens eat ticks.
Something is eating my chives..that is no big loss, if they don’t flower they cannot go to seed and spread all over the place. It could be deer or it may be a bunny rabbit. Most everything I have in my wild gardens can survive a pruning by deer or rabbits..that is just the way it is:)
