Seasonal Backyard Blogging

I cut the grass tonight and it has not grown all that much from last week. It has now been two weeks with nary a single drop of rain. The hedge, on the right, is about ready for its first cutting.

You can see the Vorlon Wife’s Tulips on the left. They are at about their peak and will be done in a few days. Also on the left are the Dogwoods just starting to blossom. The red maple, center right, is really starting to leaf out.

They are promising rain this weekend, but until it actually happens, I remain skeptical.

UPDATE: I just updated the photo to one taken from the upstairs window. I think it does a better job of showing the trees starting to flower and to leaf out.
