Our daffodils are blooming on Easter.
They survived the latest snow storm in fine form.
The daffs got me checking for survivors from last season's plantings.
Chives - looking good!
Sage - hanging in there!
Garlic - a cheap thrill!
I had a couple of withered cloves last year, and instead of tossing them out, I stuck them in the ground. They grew! And survived winter!
Sweet Autumn Clematis - signs of life.
This area is too rough for the large flowered clematis,
but Sweet Autumn Clematis can grow here.
"May Night" salvia - alive!
Chokecherry - best surprise.
Chokecherries do well here, but mine looked pitiful all summer.
I really did not expect it to survive.
The jury's still out on -
Butterfly Bush. They die to the ground in Colorado, so there's still hope.
It bloomed all summer, so at $5.97, we got our money's worth
even if it doesn't come back.
I'm pretty sure my little daylily test pilot is dead.
Did you really think you'd escape without having to hear about the horses? No, no, no. After checking out the plants, I had a really good ride on Paj.
Then our friends Diana and Bob came with their pretty girls,
Gossamer and Hannah.
Boomer enjoyed an Easter drive with his family.
It was a lovely Easter.
