April Garden Tour

We have had some really good rain this April and so far have not had any of the damaging wind or hail that so many have had.  Last year we began development of a new row crop area and this year we are really enjoying the new area.

The Twin Japanese Maples Are Just Beautiful

We have recently planted all of our Pepper Plants, Red, Yellow, Orange and Green Bell Peppers, Jalapenos and several other varieties of VERY HOT Peppers.  We will be planting our Purple Hull Pea's, Okra and Squash in the next two weeks.

I sure am glad that you stopped by to take a April Garden Tour with me and will look forward to seeing you soon for the next Garden Tour.
Peace and Joy

  3. Excellent, your garden looks great! We are just starting to turn green here and the forecast for next week is still rainy, windy and pretty chilly. Your Japanese Maples are magnificent! We had them in Louisville, but none here in Chicagoland!

  10. Miz Helen, your garden looks just wonderful. I do wish our climate was a bit friendlier. We do have some flowers out and it's really pretty, but it's too early for the veggies just yet. Your Japanese Maples are stunning. Mine hasn't even started to bud up yet!

  17. Love the yellow rose! I need to plant more, as yellow roses are a favorite for me.
    Love Japanese Maples too. Unfortunately the squirrels chewed the bark off our beautiful Japanese maple. Need to replace it, but haven't as yet.
