First of May Garden Update

Ah May.   Spring has been slow to come but we’re finally warming up here in zone 6.  The Daffs are still looking great.

Those beautiful but pesky violets are blooming in the yard. We had some trees on the property line taken out by Landscaping Oshawa. We had hoped to have it done this winter but the snow-cover prevented it. The tree people were also very busy dealing with ice-dams.

The violets in the back are white while the ones in the front are dark purple. Do you have any guesses as to why that might be?

I pruned the boxwoods and am trying to root some clippings.

The boxwoods survived well in their pots.

I’m pruning these into toparies.

The azaelea is blooming in the back but it’s an odd shape and needs to be cut back. As soon as the blooms fade, I’ll give it a heavy prune.

The Lilacs are so close to blooming. They say Mother’s day which is next weekend.

And finally, the cherry tree.

Spring has sprung but we’re off to a late start. I’m hoping for lilacs and hyacinths next week.

How is your garden progressing?
