It's been sunny and 70-75F here the past week, and spring is finally busting out all over! Definitely got it bad this year, especially after our terrible winter which saw 3 major blizzards, over 60" of snow (most of it came all at once)...etc..etc.

The only drawback is now were seeing just how much damage was done, especially to trees and landscape plants. It is truly amazing to see just how much damage there was from this winter.

Happy Spring everyone!

KJ, we had our boxwoods really splayed out. I hope tying them up will help, because they're over 30 years old. Lots of twigs and boughs down from the tulip poplars, but knock on wood the ornamentals all seem OK. Oh, and pine cones everywhere from my neighbors tree.

Gorgeous Bonsai Greg!

Here is one of my favorites! I didn't even know it had bloomed. It is a Texas Mountain Laurel - the beautiful blooms smell like grape bubble gum or KoolAid. I think they look a lot like orchid blossoms.



And here is a little Dwarf Orinoco that I thought had kicked the bucket! HA!

I thought I had spring fever before.. but now I have it bad.. maybe its the cast and the club foot (in a boot) or its knowing I could do all that I want to do, but at what cost to myself down the road... So I think I'll just take it easy and enjoy what I do have :^) (Oh my bananas will get in the ground that's a cake walk) lol

I have it badly!!! Everything seemed to want to die inside over the winter inside my house. I lost my schefflera, 2 zebrinas, 1 basjoo, 1 ensete maurelli and I think that's all. Such a killer I am On the bright side though, my 8 ft tall and 6 ft tall ensete maurellis did GREAT in my unheated shop, they continued to grow all winter and I was so pleased as this is the first time I dug them up for the winter and put in pots. They were in ground all summer and grew so much. So I guess I didn't kill everything We have had temps in the 90's already this week and it has been wonderful. Everything is outside now and enjoying the sunshine. Next week all days will be at least 80* and I am soo happy for spring to be here!

I can say I have blooms on the Almonds :^) The only thing not springy is the grapefruit and Oranges. It was 80F yesterday, and a bit warmer today & tomorrow for good banana measure :^)

I finally have some growth on the bananas that I have planted in ground.






Three out of these four pictured are coming up from the original corm that was planted. One Momma I guess is not going to come back and is sending up a pup. I still have 4 more in the ground without any activity. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

I haven't looked at this thread in awhile. Jananas I LOVE the fields of bluebonnets in your area!!! Thanks for posting the flower!

These next couple weeks are my worst spring fever time where I can so easily jump the gun in planting everything outside for the summer as we're still able to get cold nights. Trees are in bloom and the red bud is just about to explode all over the country side with purple. Yup... we have the air on inside.

I LOVE SUMMER!!

I know how you feel! I did my time (that's how it seemed) 30mi. south of the snow belt, just south of Cleveland, Oh. I never minded the severity of the winters, just the length of them.

Hey everyone, I have spring fever worse than ever. Last May I had finished planting
tomatos. I went to Lowes for a dozen more cages. I tripped over an empty pallet in
the garden dept, I shattered my elbow and wound up needing surgery. Needless to say
this totally blew my favorite time of the year. I bought a roto tiller since I can no longer dig. So I really look foward to the garden.

Another reason we're in the dead of spring is.. The pecans are buddin'.. they are probably the smartest tree on the planet or they have a direct line to mother nature. :^)

So I was away in Iowa and came back to many changes! It was feeling pretty spring-like before, but now we have tulips, dogwoods, redbuds, crab apples, magnolias and several other things blooming. What a difference a week can make.

Jeez raggedy!! That is really awful ... but you're really a trooper buying a rotatiller and still doing what you love! Shoot, I don't think I would be using a shovel to do what I could do with a rotatiller anyway!!
