Default Earth Day Yard Tour

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGVm3m8_JeQ

I've been doing weekly update videos looking for ants and this week I've decided to include a yard tour and show off all my wonderful plants.

If you have any particular videos or pictures of plants you'd like to share, feel free to post them here.

Nice idea--especially for Earth Day.

I would love to have our yard ready for a tour--definitely not there yet, but it is shaping up...and I am more determined than ever to get it to start resembling my vision for it.

I have never seen the Trillium flexipes, very interesting and attractive.

Thank you for sharing.

Nice spring flowers. Virginia bluebells have been blooming in the garden. I like the way a few new ones show up each year.
I just planted a few woodland phlox /Phlox divaricate in a couple of places hoping they will be happy enough to spread around as well. Building a woodland area where a big juniper came down. Need a few ferns and merrybells to complete. The blueberry bushes along the fence have been planted.

Lots of flowers on the redbud.
Honeysuckle budding for flowers.
But much is still all green in the garden.
Accidently unearthed what I think is a June bug.

They look really healthy, Gloria. I liked the shot of the redbud too. I'm still in Florida for another few weeks, so seeing your plants infused me with a hankering to get on back home!

Wow... you are so far ahead of us.
I'm still awaiting the arrival of the trilliums. A sure sign the moral mushrooms are soon to follow! YUM!

YOU TOO! And I'm not very many more hours North of you. So far, just the snowdrops.

There's a program on PBS tonight called Plants behaving badly about a pitcher plant that has a symbiotic relationship with a single ant species.
It starts at 9:00 PM
