In the Garden

May 05, 2015  •  11 Comments

I am so freakin' far behind in blog posts and I sincerely apologize and hope that a little Spring will help!    I have a number of things blooming right now and thought I would share them as everything comes and goes so fast (and let's face it I'm just sometimes too busy to notice).   We are full throttle into watering mode as we've not had nor do I expect a drop of rain while it as been very warm.    I think only about 5 tulips heeded my warnings and are actually blooming.   Will mark those and the rest are going to get dug up and tossed.   My daffies are very happy - or at least some are and OMG the iris out back.   I transplanted 75 iris 2 summers ago from a friend who has amazing luck growing them.   I decided they would be perfect for helping fill in the bald spots on the nasty back yard slope.   Only a couple bloomed last year but looking out there today I am going to have a sea of purple here this year and I couldn't be happier!   So here is some mishmash of garden/yard shots, oh with a weed thrown in because hey - it is part of the yard.   Very happy with a number of these!

Hi there, Just stopping by to say “Happy Mother’s Day” to you. I’m sure you are having a fabulous day. I celebrated yesterday when one of my sons and his beautiful wife came to see us….

As you probably know, we’ve been out-of-town this past week and I haven’t done any blogging much at all. I hope you enjoyed my two Tulip blog posts while we were gone——and be sure and tune in tomorrow morning to find out what we’ve been doing this past week….

Enjoyed your post today! We have some of the same Daffodils and Tulips in our yard. Ours are LONG gone here --but we have lots of beautiful Irises blooming now.

Hugs,
Betsy
