Gardening Fun: What’s Currently Blooming

April 17, 2010 9:57 am · 6 comments

Not much was going on in our garden area last week.  But a few things are popping up in our flower garden area and I thought I’d take a quick moment to share some pics.

This is a forsythia bush. It is actually one of the first things that blooms in our landscaping–even before the tulips. When we first bought our house, I saw these blooming in other yards and I just had to get a couple. They take some maintenance to keep trimmed if you have a smaller area but they are really pretty when in full bloom.

This is the very first lilac bud that I’ve had. It bloomed Thursday and my son picked it and brought it in to me. It was the best surprise! I’ll take lilacs over flowers any day.–they are my faves!

And I finally had one tulip that graced us with its beauty. I love how they open and close depending on the weather.

I’m trying to decide what to do about our front landscaping. I love the look of mulch as it seems a little more natural but it keeps blowing away causing me to buy more each spring. Overall, investing in rock might save us money but I’m not sure I want to go with that look. For those of you with mulched landscaping, do you have to replace yours often, as well?

Don’t forget to check out Money Saving Maine-iac’s gardening posting, too. She has a picture of her composting and things that are in her garden right now.
