Wildflower Gardening In Middle Tennessee
Gail,Man if you can clean it all up in one day, your doing great! Sweet tommie, guess what I found 5 different crocuses blooming in the yard on Saturday!
Well, not in one day Randy, but, I will chop down the panicums...We must make hay while the sun shines. I still think February could shock us with a bit of winter! gail
You have crocus blooming already. Wow. I have a few crocus greens up but not blooming. We have had 2 days of sunshine. Yipeeee. The sunshine has encouraged me to get out and do a little clean up. I hope you get your clean up all done...in one day?? Naw, you surely are just getting started.??
Lisa, I will just start...not sure where the cleaning up in one day rumor started! The grasses will come down, the ex-asters need to be trimmed, then there are the leaves that mulched the garden all winter, then there are the paths~they need to more pine straw. The list is long in a garden. gail
Beautiful crocus!Have a great day!Lea
Thank you Lea, you, too. gail
Busy ripping kikuyu runners out of our fig trees. One morning at a time. Two. Three. No end in sight ...
Diana, I've planted two fig trees and hope i someday have figs! Have fun gardening. gail
Well, good for her. No tommies in sight here.
I am sure she will be in a better mood after today! xo
I hope you have a wonderful day, Gail.xxxoooF
Here's to a productive day for the gardener!
Great few days last week and this coming week for work outside. Cut your Panicums?? I am still enjoying the winter foliage...hmmm, guess it is getting close to spring. Enjoy the garden!
Well, some go after Oscar, and some after Tommy. I'm with you, Gail!
So pretty my friend. Can't wait for mine to start doing their thing.~~Dee
I was thinking about cutting some of the grasses back myself. The inland sea oats are already growing. No tommies yet though. Have fun gardening!
Oh . . . I so look forward to your Tommy show! ;>)
Snapped a photo of my first crocus bloom yesterday. Daffodils are blooming, too, and the hellebore isn't far behind. But I fear we'll have an icy surprise in February or March. I have SO MUCH cleaning up to do - can't imagine when I'll get it done.
Spring is on its way! I have been patient with winter so far, but now, I just want it to be spring. I'll have to enjoy you folks' in warmer zones progress for awhile first.
I hope you had a wonderful day outside yesterday, Gail! It feels like spring here today, too, though I doubt my crocuses are ready to emerge just yet.
So early! When would be the normal time to see crocus in you area?
Let us be grateful to people who make us happy;they are the charming gardenerswho make our souls blossom.
