(It’s me. Kim.)
Despite the fact that the Midwest hasn’t exactly gotten the memo that IT’S MAY FOR GOODNESS SAKE, we are (finally) beginning to see flowers pop up here.
Okay, go ahead Southerners, roll those eyes. You were writing about your spring flowers months ago (and I was cursing you because it was still snowing here). But my lovely tulips finally decided to come up. They are just as happy and pretty as I recall.
I also spotted buds on my iris yesterday.
And the tulips at the new house are up, too. (We planted these last year and they seem to be giants.)
(I really love playing with Instagram on my new phone.)
As a whole, everything we planted at the new house last summer and fall seems to be up and doing well this spring. The iris are especially liking their new homes, and I think all the hosta we transplanted are happy as well. I’m happy we took the time to transplant a lot of overgrown plants from our house.
I was also doing a happy dance when (what I think is) a rhubarb plant popped up in what will be our vegetable garden… it’s actually perfect placement because it will be enclosed so the pugs cannot get to it. (The leaves can be poisonous.) Can someone confirm?
I’ll talk more about our gardening as the month progresses. Let’s just say I have lots of plans. (Poor Ryan.) And this week we finally got a start with the vegetable garden beds.
