Good morning! I took these photos this past weekend thinking that Spring is just around the corner and then today after two days of rain it snowed! Seriously, what is going on with the weather?
I love tree fungus! This interesting clump is from a birch tree in my mom’s garden. As I am not well versed in fungus I am not sure how it grows in the winter. This clump is large and sculptural and at the same time delicate and feathery.
Although they have had a large amount of snow in the last few weeks there is moss and lichen on many of the trees, as well as little buds. Hopefully they were not damaged by last weeks snowfall and then incessant rain this past weekend.
Are you getting ready for Spring? Do you have your plants picked out and your garden beds ready? I have to be honest, I am more of a container gardener. Our house is landscaped in shades of green, with boxwood and holly surrounding the house. Then the rest of the property is filled with azaleas, crepe myrtle, magnolias and lily(which I do not like but hate to up root).
My plan for spring is to remove shrubs that have gotten too big and replace them with something with more color and to plant a long border of hydrangeas.
What are your outdoor plans this year? Have you been lucky enough to begin or is the weather putting a damper on your plans?
I hope that you enjoy your day!
