Gardens of Dan330 – 6/17/13

After a long winter and a nearly non-existent spring, our gardens are slowly coming back to life. Most of the perennials that survived our goofy seasons are about a month late.

I really like the early morning light. What a great pleasure to watch the peonies open up in all their glory as the sun comes up. We are blessed with an abundance of peonies. The tulips and some of the other bulbs did not do well this year so it is especially gratifying to see the peonies start to bloom.  The lilies are looking good and should have a great summer as well.

The bunnies are very aggressive this year. My first gardening fail of the season is the petunias. They didn’t make it one day before they were eaten down to the nubs.

The Lilacs were great this year and the clematis and other flowering vines are starting to show signs of life.

Ground covers are blooming as well.

Hope your gardens are beautiful and satisfying.
