Friday PhotoEssay

Things are slowly starting to grow in the Demo Garden this week, although I think the chilly weather this weekend will slow things down again! (I was hoping for some artsy snow pics that I could run out and capture this morning, but not yet…)

Grape HyacinthThe grape hyacinths have started blooming this week.

Blackberry The blackberries that we pruned and tied up have put out lots of leaves this week. The cold weather may nip them back a little bit.

Clean compost binHey! The compost bin looks cleaned up and full of composting material. Quite a difference from last week! You can tell our composters have been hard at work.

Snake in the CompostSpeaking of the compost, it looks like our friendly neighborhood snake has found a new home in the compost bin!

Lemon Lace VineThe Lemon Lace Vine is starting to show its gorgeous lemony yellow leaves.

Artificial RainSince the rain skipped us on Monday, everything needed a drink this week.

RadishesEverything’s coming up…radishes?!? The seeds planted last week are starting to show their heads above ground!

DaffodilsEveryone have a great weekend! Stay warm!
