Spring is slowly coming in. The last part of April has been much cooler and kind of wet, so the garden slowed down a bit from early in the month.
The tulips have made an appearance. I have several types and the early ones are now open.
Those cool fritillaria are still around. They are long lasting, which I love in a flower
Lots of foliage appearing all around. A lot of that in the background is allium.
These are from a clump that I found when we first moved into the house 5 years ago (can you believe it has been that long??). They were in the shade and not really blooming, so I divided and moved them. Each year I divide the bigger clump and have interspersed them around the garden and I have a lot more now. All for free! Yay!
I don’t plant tulips anymore in the back yard because the squirrels really go after them. Only in the back, though, not the front. Weird. However, there are a few holdovers:
I need to do more clean out in the back bed. Lots of oak leaves from the neighbor’s tree still in there.
I took this picture the other day:
And this is that tulip today:
This is why no more new tulips back here. Grrrr…
The violets just pop up all over and I find them in the garden beds, as well as the lawn. I have never planted any, but they sure do get around!
Pretty red tulips:
And a nice inside shot:
There should be a few more different colors next week. Yay!
I need to get pictures up of the completed bathroom. We love how it turned out, but I want to do another post of getting the new tub in.
Stay safe everyone!
