First Video Posted - My Garden 2011 Time Lapse

February 08, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

This is the first video I posted here. 

Video was created with photos taken across the entire season of 2011.

End of December 2010 a big snow storm dumped two feet of snow in my backyard.

When spring came, I decided to document how the garden shape up over the season. 

Roughly by month, the flowers in bloom are:

April - Forsythia, Daffodils, Hyacinths, Azalea (purple gem)

May - Bleeding Hearts, May Salvia, Gerber Daisies, Azalea (red and white and pink), German Bearded Iris, Lily-of-the-valley, Peonies, 

June - Roses, Carnations, Daylily Stella D'Oro, Cala Lily (purple), Hydrangea, Hosta, Dusty Miller, Lavender

July - Oriental Lily, Cala Lily (yellow), Daylily (red), Black Eyed Susan, Roses

August - Chrysanthymum, Wonder of Staffa, Clementis, Russian Sage, Roses

After the snow in early April I transplanted a Japanese Maple tree in the left corner. 

A lot of the flowers were moved around in March and April. By early summer the garden was shaping up nicely.

In contrast the winter for 2011/12 is rather mild. I did very little in 2012 in the garden.

I am glad it is grown into the low maintenance garden I had hoped for.
