I know that the Old Dominion is a tad ahead of my fellow Northern Yankee Neighbors, but My yard is in full bloom, and the Wife definitely has a green thumb.

.. ..

.. ..

I take care of the grass, and dig holes where she tells me too. She does everything else, and I am proud of her.

If ya got photos of your yard, post 'em up!

My wife's day lilies will be coming on in June by the hundreds. A hibiscus is blooming and the dogwood is about done. I was in a newly planted soybean field checking for groundhogs and took a picture of my dogwood and house.

Very nice Tony.

I don't know if I'm more envious of your flowers or the fact that you live in an area that isn't still getting frost.

I'll bet she will say best therapy there is... working that beautiful garden, very nice to look at tony!

Your a lucky man. She isn't in to horses. You guys earned that Yard of the Month award. It's looking nice.

I mowed mine once so far this year. Sprayed weeds on the rock beds and planned on cleaning things up a bit this weekend but ended up going to my friends cabin to hang out and plumb the bathroom. I like a having a nice yard, not so crazy about skipping stuff to keep it that way.

Tell your wife well done! What a beautiful yard. I'm waiting for my big black mulberry tree to drop the rest of the flowers so I can finish mulching. I always get a late start due to turkey season and weekend rain. Only thing in bloom right now is my kousa dogwood and some azaleas.

From: Will

Wow - Tony, well done. There are some flowers blooming, and I have had to cut the grass maybe 3x... It's green, so that's a win. My wife is the gardener and says she has lots of weeding to do in one bed... the other's she's cleaned up but still is playing with. Ill have to snap a shot or two at some point today from Sunny MA.

I like mowing in straight lines. 4 acres of Bermuda doesn’t leave much time for flowers. ;)

I’ve got about 8 acres in my “yard”, 192 outside the yard and I wouldn’t trade my single wide paradise for the nicest place in town.

Come November, I have often told my Wife if it wasn't for her, I would river pebble my entire yard and plant one cactus, and spend the rest of my "yard" time fishing or at the Archery Range.

.. ..

Link, can we arrange a trade?

Shuteye, I think Spring is about three weeks ahead of you down here. Our Dogwood blossoms fell off over two weeks ago. That Flower is just WOW !

All, I have forwarded your comments to my Wife, and she says, "Thank you". She just returned from spending a week in Portland Maine with her Daughter, and stated they don't even have leaves on their trees yet. A late Northeast spring indeed.

Beautiful yard, tonyo! Better than last year! Great spot, Link! I mowed up leaves the other day and it needs a mowing today! We still have tulips up!

Tony... The "moundy" looking ones, in the foreground there? Those are Cat Mint. That's her "back row" along the house there as well... In front there is some purple cone flower, day lilly's, violets and lord know's what else :). As you aptly put it... "I just dig holes"...

. . . . so, I am upstairs on the computer this morning, sipping my first cup of Joe, and surfing Bowsite, of course . . . . .

.. .. ..

.. .. .. . ..

. . . . the Missus is outside in the garden, pruning stuff, or what ever the heck she does out there . . . . .

. . . . . all of the sudden, I hear this bloood curdling scream from the Missus . . .

. . . . . I reach into the closet, grab the Mossberg, jack a shell in the chamber, and run outside like I am trying to steal home base in the bottom of the 9th to put my team ahead . . . . .

(12ga, 00buck, heavy shot, if you must know)

. . . . and this is what I found threatening my Missus . . . . .

The good, is that they eat chipmunks... The bad, is that they are really bad news if they bite you. YIKES! Glad the misses is ok!

Did you put the hevi shot on it, or do a long range attack with a club...

Skinned, a copperhead would make a long bow look AMAZING!

"And right there is why I don't garden!" lol, South Farm. If I can't ride over it with 3 blades spinning, it doesn't get tended. And that's probably also why Southern Living won't answer my emails...

Tony, glad the missus was unscathed. That stated, I have to say a copperhead snake is one of the handsomest colored critters in all of creation.

In a few weeks I will have maters, I have quite a few planted and they are starting to set tomatoes. In July I will start eating them every day.
