It begins!

A new gardening season has begun! I've got some gorgeous flowers out in the front yard. This is the first year that we were able to plant bulbs so we have lots of tulips and daffodils. The hydrangeas and the hostas are getting some nice leaves as well.
In the backyard the pear trees are in bloom. I think its going to be another stellar year for pears.
In addition to the pear and apple tree, we have added two new fruit trees. We have bought a Pacific Frost peach tree and a Stella cherry tree. I'm hoping they both thrive in our yard.
Inside I have tons of seedlings going. I'm running out of room in the house to put them all, I've had to sacrifice my dining room table.
I'm hoping it is another productive year. I didn't do much in the way for starting things indoors last year so I'm hoping by doing it this year, I can have better spacing and avoid the crowding problem I had last year.
The garden is almost ready for direct seeding and a couple transplants. The weather is warming up and I'm slowly getting the weeds under control. While mulching did help over the winter, the battle with the clover and morning glory is an ongoing one (not to mention exhausting).
