I was looking through some of last year's photos last night to get a feel for when things were blooming. Sadly, it looks like the tulips aren't coming back. On April 1, 2008, they were blooming and almost done. I have found a few leaves but no buds this year. I guess I'll need to remind myself to pick up some bulbs in the fall.
April 1, 2008: The perennial bed.
It's come a long way since then.
It's 37 degrees and clear according the weather.com. I'll find out soon enough. Inventory at the store begins today. We get to count all the plants. ALL the plants. After a mindnumbing day of that, I'll come home and work on the project some more. Everything was laser cut yesterday and I started assembling the guest house and master bedroom wing. Tonight I'll work on the main house and hopefully the screen porch. I need to have all this done before bed.
More rain in the forecast this week. It should help the periwinkle I planted this weekend. Speaking of that, here's a picture of the side slope from last April 1, two months after I had planted the plugs.
The same area last week.
