Hello, it's Virginger welcoming you to Garden Thursday. Spring has slowed down some. It got cooler, actually more normal, in terms of the temperature. So the plants haven't been racing through the season. We like that, then we have time to enjoy. It has even gotten a bit chilly some mornings, we hopes it doesn't get too cold to kill things.
Close up of the crabby apple tree showing the flower buds ready to come. This is something that could get hurt by a really cold night. Ruin all the un-opened flowers.
The whole tree, mum noticed a dead part that will need to get cut out. Well when she is able to do that, sometime in the future.
The grass is growing and getting a bit shaggy, mum isn't allowed to push the grass eating monster around just yet.
So we have a handy guy who will be coming around to take care of things for a while. Me and mum snoopervised him, he did OK, but mum thinks he is very inefficient mowing. Turning away from where he needs to go, then having to circle back around. Out front he used a huge grass eater, in one swipe it would do 4 times what mum could do with her little machine. Plus the guy rides on it!
That should do for now. Stay happy and warm everyone.
