(I live just south of Denver, Colorado.)

I mean to say ‘Spring in the Suburbs’ for those who can’t comprehend my mangled vernacular.  Although I’m not a prolific poster it seemed I’d be eligible for a procrastinator award or snow would blanket the ground before I posted these pictures of spring flowers. We often have a light snow in June so at least I’m not putting off until next winter.

Jupiter’s Beard and aging cedar fence (I know the feeling):

Diabolo Ninebark bush with new shoots after a severe spring haircut:

Annuals:

Our 16 year-old roses are up again this spring but too sad to portray right now.

All the rest:

Stay tuned for pictures of a recent nature hike in Roxborough State Park and a multi-post review of Lapham’s Quarterly Spring 2010: Sports and Games.  I promise to post before snow flies next winter OR this June.

  1. I seem to have lost more plants this year through a wet winter than I ever do to frosts!

      It was very dry here most of the winter and then wet wet wet late winter and early spring. We are enjoying a lot of green right now.

  2. You have a beautiful garden John. Your flowers are so lovely – I love spring. And your grass looks so healthy also.
