Spring is almost Sprung

Columbine coming back to life.

Tulips starting to peek through the soil...

Hyacinth on the rise!

I am so incredibly excited for the tulips I planted last fall to poke up their lovely little heads! One can only hope that there was enough fertilizer applied to develop blooms... I know, I know... Can't I just be happy that they are coming up at all?

Winter at 7200ft in elevation is a marathon to say the least. We get those lovely days above 60 degrees, yes, but then at night we drop to well below comfortable. And then there is the snow... Truly, I am hoping for more snow! We need so much more moisture to pull us out of the impending drought and to make our hayfield worth processing in June.

I can always water the flower beds, the back yard, and the bushes... I cannot, however, water that front hayfield without penalty of law. So snow, rain or monsoonal moisture of almost any kind, I am patiently waiting!

In the meantime, I will enjoy the little pokey noses of my upcoming blooms! Woot woot!

  1. Try breaking up the ground around the plants so the roots can breathe. Honestly works!
