I walked around checking out our gardens the other day, and I thought I'd post a garden update. Be warned... this may be a long post, but with lots of pictures!
Our garden around our big rock is doing well. The day lilies are growing, the roses and hazel are leafing out, and our Japanese Maple is leafing as well. We were very concerned these past few weeks - the maple didn't seem to be doing well. We learned after the fact that we should have wrapped it over the winter. Well, it looks like the top of the tree didn't make it, but we were very happy to see new growth from the base of the tree!

Our garden next to the driveway is also doing very well (blogged here). This one is absolutely full of day lilies, with a few irises at the front. I can't wait for them to bloom!
The lilac bushes were all blooming as well. Unfortunately, we had very high winds last week and most of the blooms are gone.
As for the new gardens we put in, the dahlias still haven't come up yet but the gladiolas we planted in front of the barn have started to grow. We planted a variety pack, so we have no idea what colours we have... can't wait to find out!
