it is that time of year – everything is beginning to bloom or has already bloomed and is done! yes believe it or not the earliest daffodils have been done for several weeks – now other varieties will begin soon. I am disappointed in my tulips that I planted – I planted about 40 bulbs and so far only about 20 of the plants have appeared! Here are two opened. High of 76 yesterday but cooler today and then would you believe they say it will hit 80 two days running.
And this one appears to have 3 buds from one bulb – that will be nice.
The azaleas all opening so pretty – these bushes just continue to grow every year – the bushes are old – some topping 28 years now.
Vinca opening in various parts of the yard.
The Redbud tree with the raised bed gardens to the side and beyond them the small hillside of wild plants and the logs in front of them where I scattered lily bulbs, purple coneflowers and black eyed susans last fall.
A close up of some of the azalea’s.
My Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy and gang will be more hexies – working on the lower left corner – I need to thread baste more neutrals – have a stack cut out but need basting. Little sewing going on here with this nice spring weather. I got potatoes, lettuce and peas planted yesterday and working in the garden takes all my energy it seems – each year I can tell I am getting older! Linking to Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
