Pictures from Sunday

Special K won this orchid for me at a silent auction at the bridge center charity game. It will be in the dining room, not in the garden:)

Creeping phlox

Plants from the Friends Plant Sale

This is the former Japanese Bayberry bush (see previous post). Removing the stump is tough - I'll have to finish next weekend.

Flowers are starting to bloom...

Bleeding Hearts

This unidentified bush is starting to grow leaves.

I'm not sure why the former owner planted lillies here, but these were beautiful last summer.

I took out one of the three Japanese Bayberry bushes last fall. This is the next one to go. I think I'll put a rose in it's place.

Garden Update - Early May

We've had a cold spring - things are behind schedule, but here is an update:

This is my garden before everything starts to grow:

Magnolia bush

Grape hyacinths

My first tulips

Does anyone know what kind of bush this is? It will be covered with dark green leaves later on.

The peonies are starting to sprout
