I live in a part of the country where gardening is a challenge. The cold and the snow in April killed off the primary leaf buds on many of our trees. Most of the lilacs did not bloom, although I did get this picture of the few surviving blossoms at the bottom of my plants.
But summer is here and the flowers are blooming.
The garden is starting to produce.
The wildlife is back.
The yard is growing like crazy and, what can I say, in my sixties it is just harder to keep up!
The heat is on and 99 degree temperatures are taking a toll on plants that were stressed by the cold in April.
Trees worry me the most. My beautiful Radiant Crab tree had very few flowers this Spring and now the underneath leaves are turning yellow then brown and finally are dropping off. Help!
