Another Beautiful Day in the Garden

Today was a beautiful day to be in the garden--not too cold, not too hot and not too buggy. We had plenty of visitors today as well. Stop by and see the garden yourself next Sunday, May 5, for the garden meeting at 11 am, followed by a work day.
Someone inquired about the crabapple trees today. It's hard to reconcile these beautiful trees with the crabapple that haunted my yard when I was a little kid. It was sickly, and it didn't bear shriveled, tiny fruits so much as hurl them at you. It was the bane of my grandfather's existence for at least the first 5–6 years of my life until he finally chopped it down. These crabapples are much friendlier.

I'm pretty sure I got a little carried away with the tulips in my plot this year. I had no idea what I planted, but I have some cool double-tulips. I'm not sure if I should dig them up and save them or try to leave them be and plant around them when they're done blooming. Thoughts?

More blooms throughout the garden.

I love to garden, but I'm afraid of bugs. I'm constantly shrieking. My boyfriend reminds me, "They live out here." So I was a little wary of cleaning out the spot next to my plot, full of leaves and berries. I unearthed worms and some Morlock-looking bugs. Here it is afterwards, with my garden hat shadow.
