Here’s What’s Growing By the May Long-Weekend

It was way back in in the June of 2008, that I took a Photo Stroll Around the Yard. That’s some time ago, so I figured it was about time to do it again. Of course, now I have a whole new yard to stroll around in! Anyway, here’s some of the things I found growing around the yard…

First of all, my tulips are just starting to open up.

And my raspberries are just starting to show signs of life.

My watermelon is looking just fine. (I haven’t had success with watermelons for about 4 years, so I’m hoping this year will be the one!)

My Borealis Haskap seedlings are doing well. I just got them planted last week.

And I always love seeing the white blossoms cover branches of my plum trees!

And my hostas are just starting to unfurl…

It’s amazing to me how soft the needle/leaves of the larch trees are.

And of course, I wandered over to my neighbors yard and had to take a few pictures there too! They’ve got all kinds of little violas popping up everywhere.

This was one of my favorites so far this spring – sandcherry blossoms in my neighbors yard  just about to open!

And finally, bleeding hearts, also growing at my neighbors. (Mine just got planted last week – so they’re a little behind.)

And that’s what things look like around here. Next time around I’ll have to show you my tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, kiwis, and grapes!

Hi! just wanted to say thanks for such an awesome site! I’m learning a lot; just moved out of town to an acreage near Lacombe and need all the help I can get 🙂 But most importantly you actually have info I can use in Alberta, it’s so frustrating to try to find information and everything is for warm-all-year climates. Keep up the great job!

Love the photos! I look forward to having a lovely garden – veg and flowers – in a year or so. I made a small practice garden this year on a patio and everything is flourishing so, fingers crossed for the major project to come.

I left a note of thanks for your greenhouse instructions, but I wandered around your site and wanted to leave another thanks for this whole site. I’m a beginner gardener and plan to start growing all my own veg in about a year out on the East Coast (in NS) and, in one half hour sitting, I’ve learned more useful info, tips, and gardening magic than I’ve learned in my whole life elsewhere! So, thanks. 🙂
