It's Finally Spring!

Category: Pianolady's Gardens | Posted: Sat May 17, 2008 11:18 pm

After a long cold winter, it's finally time to think about gardening again! I'm thrilled that we managed not to get our cherry trees nipped by a late freeze this year, last year was so disappointing.

Plans for this year are pretty much the same as all previous years, except I've added a vegetable garden tucked away in the middle of the large flower garden. It's been several years since I've had a vegetable garden, so that's pretty exciting.

My favorite plant in bloom at the moment are the bleeding hearts. They are well established, and huge.



We've also got a lot of garter snakes, which means less crickets etc. :)

Spring has sprung! So nice to see you again Pianolady!
Your Bleeding Hearts are just gorgeous! Mine should bloom soon too. I'd love to see some Garter Snakes in my yard.

Gosh you bleeding hearts are sooo much bigger and bushier than mine!! They look really lovely Pianolady. I could do with a few of those garter snakes in my garden to help keep the pests at bay.

It's really great to see you posting again as you've definately been missed here.

Hi Pianolady, good to see you posting again.

That Bleeding Heart is fantastic, I can't get them to grow here so I will enjoy yours even more.

We have garter snakes too, certainly do keep down the cricket and roach population.

Hi there, Pianolady, your hearts are delightful. Have you had them for long? We haven't got snakes in our garden, I'd have been scared to death if I met one.

Love the bleeding hearts (mine isn't blooming yet), but you can keep the snake. I had one surprise me while picking strawberries in my garden one year, and it scared the heck out of me!

LOL, the snake did scare the begeebers out of me, I almost stabbed him while planting some bulbs! The bleeding hearts were planted 7 years ago from a small start. We cut the tree down they were planted underneath, and they've been going strong ever since.

The hearts of gorgeous. I'm planning to put some in this year myself. I've got to find a good spot first. The snake is cute. I had one once but I haven't seen any in a few years.
