It's almost like a carnival, with sherbet colored flowers, and deep green grass everywhere you look. There should be a vivid green crayon labeled April Grass, don't you think?
Even though we had a spot of snow a few weeks ago, for the most part, it actually worked to our advantage. The chilly air kept my tulips blooming much longer than usual. About every week, a new variety begins to bloom, with only one type still left to open.
Luckily, that snow is long gone, and the days are pleasant and warm. I've done a good bit of gardening already, but since our frost free date is still a few weeks out, there's a limit to what I can accomplish till then.
The cool season veggies are coming along nicely, except for the sugar snap peas. I must have gotten a bad batch of seeds, because they did not come up. I think I still have time to get them in before the hot weather arrives. We planted radishes, kohlrabi, lettuce, spinach, green onions, and carrots, along with the peas.
