April Flora

Note the thick rows of daffodils coming up. The long one is actually longer than what's in the picture -- it goes past where I was standing. Toby and Lynae spent a little time spiffing the yard this afternoon. Everywhere we step, we're stepping on something... seems it's mostly lilies, squill, and daffodils. They truly are everywhere! This place will soon be bursting with color. I'm so excited, I can hardly stand it!

Yesterday I ordered apple trees, lilacs, ferns, crocuses, snowdrops, and tulips. I'm beginning to wonder where I'll find bare spots to plant them all. Thankfully, most of the planting will be done in the fall for next spring, and by fall I should know where I want to put stuff.

We also got 4 bookcases delivered yesterday. So now we can finally unpack and sort our books -- woo-hoo!! We're taking our time, mostly because there's so much to do outside, and it's gorgeous out this week. is down indefinitely, but y'all can still email me at my yahoo address. If you don't have it, leave a comment and I'll get it to you.

More pics soon... thanks for stopping by!


  1. I'm so excited for you all & all the flowers and planting that you're going to do!

    Please send me your new email addy. I had written to your birdberry one and wondered why I hadn't heard back from you yet. :o)

    I love all the flowers!! What is the yellow and white one? That is SO my yard when we buy a house some day...

    Ahhhhh, I'll just have to live vicariously through you for now.

    I got a better picture of the Rose-breasted Grosbeak today! We have seven pair here for these two (?) weeks before they come up your way. You'll have to let me know if you get them in your yard. :)
