A Georgous Day in the Garden

by Lorraine on April 5, 2009

So much in going in my native plant garden, that I should have plenty of things to write about.   Now that Spring is here, most of the plants are blooming like crazy, especially the Poppies!   As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, they want to take over the garden and as much as I love their orange colors and wavy stems, I can’t let that happen.

They are very aggressive and as you can see in the photo, the little botantical buggers are even growing in a seam along the sidewalk.   When they are done, it’s going to be a huge job to remove them and as I discovered last year, the can’t be pulled up.

The Garden in April w/ Poppies

I have noticed that some of them are getting mildew, so it’s just a matter of time when the Poppies are “pooped”.

There are too many plants to mention in this post right now that are blooming.   But I will be adding more pictures and tell you what’s going on in the garden on a more regular basis.

The Hummingbirds are back, lots of bees and plenty of lizards, too.   And the warmer weather of course means to be aware of Rattlesnakes as they come out of hibernation.
