I have been bringing out my garden ornaments and shelves which are made of metal or plastic, they can take a sudden tragic return to winter.
I really can use the space in the garage that they're occupying, so it's all good.
Returning to a habit from early in my garden career, I am doing my first "tour" of the season, going bed by bed and noting if any green is showing anywhere, and if trees and shrubs made it through the winter.
I also note any changes I'm hoping to make.
I've only covered half the gardens, but my blueberries all look good, as does my nectarine in its pot of a home.
I thought last year's new pink blueberry might not be viable, but when I broke off a bit of stem it was green inside so it is fine.
The arborvitae along the south wall seem nice and green and took little winter damage it seems, so I have high hopes for nice lush growth this year.
Here are some nice brown pics, imagine these in a month if the weather continues or improves green and full of life.
Imagine if you will daylilies and yarrow.
