SPRING HAS ARRIVED

I ventured in the yard with the camera to take a peek at how things looked garden-wise. I have so much work to do because I didn't cleaned my flowerbeds last Fall as I was very busy sorting out through thousands of ceramic molds, paints, glazes and supplies for a couple of months.

With the heavy snow we had this winter, everything is flattened pretty badly. I'm not sure if my flowering bushes have survived.  They are pretty tough but they have their limit.
These photos are but a small sample of my flower beds.
To take a closer look double click on the pictures.


The snow is almost all gone from my daylily flower bed and the bush by the road has suffered a lot this winter. Thank goodness I cleaned that big one last Fall but the narrow daylily flowerbed by the driveway has not been cleaned.




Here's a shot of my large Peonie.


The Hosta  bed next to the Peonie


Things are starting to grow but the bed needs cleaning before things grows more.


My daylilies poking out.

The St John River is on the rise and has just opened up this week.


The plow has torn the sod and deposited in the snow bank.


Squirrel #7 has been caught and released.


Maple trees are budded.

Thanks for your visit and I love your comments.
Have a super weekend.
