Waiting For Spring....and some updates

I've been getting bulb catalogs for weeks now which has got me very excited. I started looking through some garden photos and have realized how much more I enjoy my garden in the spring. Everything is so lush and colorful. Don't get me wrong, I love my summer flowering plants especially my daylilys but looking through these photos reminded me how nice it is to work outside in the spring. It's still cool out not hot and humid. It's not buggy and the grass is actually green. I'll be happy to see my mums and asters bloom but there is nothing like the colors of spring. Now for some updates. I've been a very lazy blogger but have been very busy in the yard. Many beds have been expanded to make room for daylilys mostly gifts from my wonderful daylily friends. A few trees and hydrangeas have been moved and I've discovered the joy of taking cuttings. I've never realized how easy (and Cheap) it is. I've got several mums cuttings that have rooted and I am working on some hydrangeas. And last but not least I am awaiting the arrival of four baby chicks. I've ordered a coop and can't wait for them to arrive so be on the watch out for chicken updates.
