There has been a slight change in the color wave. A little more purple and some white.
A few new visitors to the garden. This magnificent Pileated Woodpecker was working over a stump right across from our driveway. Only the second time in 25 years I have seen one in our yard.
And I am making a slight change in a garden bed that will eventually bring a lot of color. This bed has needed attention for some time. This winter was hard on a lot of shrubs in my garden. Several died back to the ground that have never had trouble with winter. The variegated Kerria shrub got a good cut back.
I moved the hostas to the more shady end of the bed.
In this wide open space I planted...
several packets of seeds.
I will hopefully soon have plenty of color for more summer visitors.
Have you had any new visitors in your garden this spring? Are you planting seeds yet? Don't get into too big of a hurry. The seeds I planted a couple of weeks ago were frozen to oblivion. As you can see I had to start over. Such is how some springs go. I wish you better luck that I had at first.
