Notes from the garden - redbud and lilacs
We were delighted that our redbud bloomed this Spring! After the damage it received during last Winter's ice storm, we were sure we'd lost it. Although scarred, it seems to have recovered. I love the tiny pink flowers and would really miss this tree. It's funny how attached you can get to a tree!
Here's a little sneak peek of my lilacs! Although they were bent right in half from the weight of the ice, there was no damage done to them at all and they've bloomed beautifully. More photos to come!
I've been busy getting the garden weeded and planted. Yesterday morning, I went out to water some new plantings only to discover that the rabbits had visited during the night. They destroyed most of my morning glories (I think two have survived), all of my perennial sweet peas, about half of the annual sweet peas and had a nice feast on one of my hydrangeas. Needless to say, I'm not very happy with rabbits right now. I sprinkled blood meal in the garden and hopefully that will keep them away. I just have to remember to reapply it after it rains or when I water! So frustrating!
