Although the calendar says it is spring, botanically I am still waiting for it to happen in my yard. After such a cold March, we finally have had a few warm days, and a lot of plants should pop into bloom in a few days. But the only thing blooming in the yard is a yellow primrose plant and a few hellebores.
There is nary a flower on the azalea bushes, the dogwood buds are in wait mode as are all the cherry trees. Here are some photos of a few things that have emerged in my backyard garden.
|But overall the backyard garden looks pretty bare.|
Everything is two to three weeks behind this spring. I did see some forsythia in bloom just yesterday in the neighborhood. So while I am waiting, I bought some hyacinths at the grocery to tide me over till blooming starts.
