IN OUR YARD July 6

Did not do much gardening today.

 

Real lazy today, spent most of the day in a lawn chair with camera in hand.  I did wander threw the gardens and watered some seed I sowed yesterday and looked at some Forsythia cuttings that need to be potted.  Also checked out several Hydrangea layered growths they will soon need to  be potted.  Not much else to say about this day except it was a beautiful day just right for relaxing in the garden and listing to the sounds of nature.

Scarlet Tanager paid us a visit. It has been several years since we last saw one. Spent quite a bit of time so we think they are nesting close.

Probably should have mowed some of the lawn and areas that are getting tall.  However the Mower is out of gas and so is the gas can. Too lazy to go and get some gas. Will get to all that another day.

 That’s it for this post see you next time.

DAFFODILS COMING UP ALL OVER THE PLACE
*

Finally all the snow is gone except for a few remote places.  Daffodils popping up all over the place.  Not seeing many Crocuses guess the winter was not to their liking. Besides the Chipmunks eat the crocuses as fast as they blossom. Lilacs and Rhododendrons Seem to be budding up good. The Roses are showing signs of life.

Looks like the daffodils did good this winter. Coming up in large clusters with lots of new plants.
