Let's talk about gardening! I know we have quite a few gardeners around here. I'm sure we all have advice to share. Post what you're growing and let us see some pics! I'll edit this initial post over time and add any gardening links or resources that are relevant to our region.

It's about that time of year again. Flowers are starting to sprout, grass is turning green and there's mud everywhere. Some early Cherry Blossoms are blooming already in DC, but the main show on the tidal basin is still a few weeks away. Based on what I saw Thursday evening, I'd expect peak to be pretty close to what CWG/NPS have forecast. Post what ya got in this thread. Well, keep the naked selfies for your own personal file or send them to rr. Anyway, daffodils in my neighborhood are coming along nicely. I'd expect to see some of them in bloom by the end of the week. Here's a pic of some of those that are not quite as tall as the others. And here are two obstructed view pics of a hawk that's been hanging around the woods getting fat on squirrels, chipmunks and whatever else he may be eating.
