Spring in the Boulder Foothills

My Yard Man and I went up about 5 miles up into the mountains west of town to do an estimate. Their Spring is a little different up there. We got a light dusting of snow when we were there, but came back down to 60º in town. Today we are into the 70ºs.

I decided to stop chatting about gardening so much and get to work outside. I've been opening up a garden bed along the north 75' fence line with plans to truly garden this year (as in 'grow food'). Part of that project is moving a lot of plants from the wildlife area in the front to the back where we'll actually be able to see the blooms. Who knew I had 30+ day lilies in the front? Looking forward to some orange and yellow later this year.
