Garden Ablaze with Color

We've had a lot of rain and storms the past few days which has made it difficult to do gardening chores such as weeding and mulching. However, the flowers seem to be loving the rain and hot weather. The daylilies, purple coneflowers and azaleas are pretty much at their peak right now.

Ah! Finally, some beautiful weather in the Bluegrass state!

As a result of an unusually wet and soggy spring and then an oppressing early heat wave in Kentucky, I am just now getting my yard/garden in decent shape. Today is a beautiful day with pleasant temperatures and low humidity. So, I plan to do some much-needed weeding and mulching today.

The daylilies are starting to bloom and the hydrangeas should be at their peak soon. Also in bloom now: Asiatic lilies; coreopsis; and speedwell. The hostas are really thriving. I think they liked the rainy spring weather. Annuals in bloom include impatiens, begonias, and periwinkle.

I will try to post to the blog a bit more often during the summer.

Happy Gardening!

Daffodils, the first sign of Spring
I planted more bulbs last fall to make a better showing.

A rainbow of spring colors

After an exceptionally cold and seemingly endless winter, spring has sprung in the bluegrass. It's great to be able to work in the yard again! My daffodils have been blooming for a couple of weeks now and the tulips are making a beautiful show of pastel colors .

Keep checking back as the spring progresses. Just a few more weeks til Derby!
