2012 Spring at Yankee Lake

by Alice Salmans

Last fall, Cathy Dawkins and I planted 100 Kind Alfred Daffodils, 100 mixed variety daffodils, and 100 Wood Hyacinths (white, pink and purple) on the clubhouse grounds. Along with a variety of blooming ground covers, the YLPA corner is something to smile at. While the daffodils were out early, the wood hyacinths will bloom later in June… I think! This year, all bets are off with the strange weather we’ve had. Our Prairie Fire Crab Apple trees are ready to pop and should add to the lovely view from the County road.

Unfortunately, due to the lack of snow the past winter and a dry spring so far, some of our shrubs and trees have experienced a great deal of winter burn. We’ll have to see what survives.

I did not apply for a Sullivan Renaissance Grant this year due to personal considerations, but I’m hoping we can continue with that program next year. I hope you enjoy some of the spring bulbs this year and welcome back our rain garden blooms!
