The backyard before
We hired some guys to trim things back a few weeks ago and it has paid off in spades. Here is what has been blooming recently.
Salvia (of Miley Cyrus fame)
Hostas and my very own hydrangeas
I have no idea what color the hydrangeas will be. I am looking forward to putting some of those in some arrangements inside. Also, the last time I planted hostas they became a salad smorgasbord for the neighborhood deer, so I am glad these are here for now.
We also have some knockout roses along the back of our screened in porch (like everyone else in our neighborhood) that haven't started blooming yet, but they are reportedly very low maintenance, which is right up my alley.
Ornamental Grasses (which provide a great sound barrier when they are taller and the wind is blowing)
In your part of the country or the world, what greenery are you looking forward to seeing finally bloom? Has spring started or like us, are you experiencing almost summer?
