Today I decided I had to see what was going on in my muddy backyard. So I grabbed my camera and off I go. There still isn't a lot going on but I managed a couple of shots.The Homestead verbena is a great plant! Much of it stayed around all winter without the blooms of course.It started blooming about a week or two ago. It has such a spreading effect and has evolved to this......(yes I know there are lots of leaves in my flower bed, feel free to grab a rake and come on down)!My phlox is blooming now. I have a very small patch for now but I know it will increase in size gradually.My pincushion flower has bloomed off and on every since I planted it last year. Another thing I like about this plant is how it stays evergreen for me.I know this doesn't look like much now but this is one of my sugar snap peas I planted under my new arbor. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will climb right on up my arbor and show me some great produce!Speaking of produce, remember this pot I showed in another post. I planted June bearing strawberries in it and they look happy. I did plant the rest in the ground, some are looking okay, but others, not so much.Then lastly I did manage a picture of some little tweets. They've had a hard time feeding lately because of the red-wing blackbirds that hog the feeder.
Well thanks for plodding through the mud with me. Remember if you're feet got really nasty, wear galoshes next time.
