As is typical for this time of year, I've spent a lot of time in the yard tending the garden. We haven't gotten much rain so I've watered quite a bit. There are also some new additions to the garden that I am nursing along to make sure they make it through the season. Everything looks very lush and it was a great year for the daffodils and tulips and the lilacs look fantastic but many of the other flowers are a little behind. The allium I planted last year is just beginning and looks great. Here are some pics of what is happening in the front yard.
