After a false start, then a freeze or two the last couple of weeks that caught the Apricot trees off-guard and froze their delicate blossoms, it looks like the real Spring has arrived here also. Our Ornamental Pears and the Plums have joined the Apricots in bloom. The Cherries and later the Apples will chime in . I haven’t seen many butterflies nor Bees yet. I hope the pollination of the various fruit trees will be ok.
Not being much of a mechanic, I had the John Deere diesel and the Scott Rider Mower serviced and the blades replaced so that Mowing will begin shortly. We have a lot of wild onion mixed into the grass in the yard, so when I mow I get the pungent odor of the onions for a day or two after.
The Cold Frame is ready for the veggie seeds and I will do a final rototilling and fertization of the garden plot when the ground is firm enough to support the equipment. We found some multi-colored Cox Combs to expand our growing flower area with those beauties.
Timing of these projects is important this year. Our may Roadtrip will come between Planting time and Transplanting time. It will be a busy Spring.
Meantime the bright yellow of the Dafodills and the Forsycthia is shouting it’s Springtime greeting to all.
