This past Sunday we spent some time cleaning up our back and front garden beds as well as our boulevard and it was nice to see how many plants had already started to grow beneath the leaves and yes, even under the snow.
We even discovered that some of the ground that had been covered in leaves and dead foliage was still quite frozen. Forget about planting some of the new spring plants I’d purchased that day! Hopefully I’ll get out and plant them today as I’m sure the ground is thawed now.
When we went shopping for some new garden plants I saw a lovely pink hydrangea that I wanted to buy. I’m not sure how hardy it is so I’ve been keeping it inside our front porch, but I’ll plant it out in the garden at some point and see how it does:
Isn’t that gorgeous?
We have a hardy pink hydrangea in the back garden and it looks like it survived the winter just fine. It has new sprouts coming up. Hopefully it will bloom for me this year as it didn’t last year.
