After many delays (some real and some imagined) I'm ready to re- join in Tootsie's Fertilizer Friday's again this year. Despite horrendous winds that caused a lot of damage the past few weeks and the always-at-the-end-of-the-season late freeze, signs of spring are abounding in my yard. So many things are coming up, it was hard to narrow it down. Don't you love that feeling?
The winds trashed my awesome Tulips and Daffodils, but the late-blooming ones are saving the day and keeping things cheerful. The fruit trees are starting to blossom, the other trees are getting their leaves, and even my baby Magnolia is showing good signs of life.
The Magnolia I planted last year survived the winter (yippee!) and seems to have survived the winds...looks like some flowers might be on the way. (The wind tore the first batch right off the tree.) :
So, there you have it...my enthusiastic entry for Fertilizer Friday. How could I not be cheerful when I see all this new life around me. It is inspiring, I tell you! So, visit the other gardens and share in the joy that is spring. It will definitely put a smile on your face!
