    Last of the pics.

    Something that brought a little happiness to me was seeing that my lilac bush that is 10 years old, FINALLY has buds on it. LOL. I thought my brother gave me a sterile one. Now if something doesn't happen to the buds, it may actually bloom this year. Funny I'm allergic, but love flowers. Just like animals.

    As you can see from some of the pics, I'm stillllllllllllllllll raking leaves. LOL, gotta get back to it, too. Campfire tonight around the leaves. We had rain last night so I'm back to burning.

    I gotta move down south. No flowers in my yard yet. Still got a small pile of snow in the yard though. :sad:

    Probably won't take the gas out of my snowblower for a few weeks yet.

    Some very nice flowers Cheryl, do you use any special ferts on them ?

    I use Miracle grow for roses on most of my flowers and they always turn out brighter and bigger than normal. I also use Miracle grow for roses on my tomato plants and end up with juicier tomatoes.

    Al,
    No I don't fertilize them but Swamp can tell you what to use. 20-20-20-Peters I believe.

    I put epsom salt on my roses occasionally.

    The Azalias around here are really blooming right now and we use coffee grounds on them and the roses here, works great.

    Hard work sure pays off. We planted over 300 bulbs last fall. Destroyed my drill but shure looks great this year. I have over 300 started garden plants hardening as I write this. I love to garden.

    I love those dward irises! They bloom alot later here in TN.

    Here are 2 pics I took last week of my VA bluebells and one of my tulips.
    I have a "blue" tulip blooming now. At least that's what they call it, but really it is purple. I'll take a few more pics soon.
