Spring committed itself finally on the last day of March. Everywhere I look there is color - the azaleas are budding, the pierris is covered in little white bells and the periwinkle is going nuts.
I seem to have twice as many daffodils as last year, in big clumps.You can be sure I will be putting in lots of daffodil bulbs in whatever yard I own next. When I got home around 6:30 last night, it was warm and sunny and still in the mid-70's.
But along with all the plants I want, like these delicate grape hyacinths, there were also tiny white flower-topped weeds all over the yard. Clearly it was time to mow. And it was amazing to shake off the gray of the previous week and be out working in a tank top in the sun. Afterwards, I sat on my front step and drank an icy beer as the air started to dip below 70. I remembered why I love this part of the country so much.
Such pretty flowers!! It was worth the wait for them to bloom!ReplyDelete
Yes it was!Delete
I suspect the new owners will love your flowers and the lawn care you have done. Are you getting close (weeks?) to showing the house?ReplyDelete
I hope so. And soon!Delete
it def has its beauties now doesnt it...ReplyDelete

I was so thinking of you last week, when I went to the Macy's Flower Show and saw all the beautiful spring flowers! In fact, I took a bunch of pics, which I will be sharing sometime next week on my blog.ReplyDelete
GORGEOUS photographs! And I could smell those hyacinths from here!
That last photo of the daffodil is stunning! I've never seen them that color before. WOW!
I bought those bulbs from a catalogue and just love the color. I plan to dig up some of the bulbs (I'll leave some) and take them with me.Delete
lovely! nice to have such flowers around!ReplyDelete
this year it came very early, I hope that the winter is not going to come back:)
I don't think it will at this point. We are usually safe to plant tender annuals at Easter and that's just a couple of weeks away.Delete
We have finally had two gorgeous days in a row! Flowers are a looooong way off. The brewski sounds faaaaabulous, as Ron would say.ReplyDelete
It WAS faaaaabulous!Delete
All those bright flower colors do wonders for the spirit!ReplyDelete
Yes, they surely do.Delete
mmm, think I will look up those daffodils in my narcissus book, and buy some of the bulbs next year. They're beautiful.ReplyDelete
I believe I ordered them from a Wayside Gardens catalogue.Delete
Nice to see some traces of spring by you. Thanks for the lovely photographs.ReplyDelete
You're very welcome.Delete
Your flowers are beautiful !!!ReplyDelete
Those are the only flowers I will be seeing for some time yet. Still have snow in the yard, and more is falling as I type this. But when they get here, I will definitely be enjoying them!!ReplyDelete
I know lots of people are still blanketed in snow - that's hard.Delete
Beautiful. Spring is my second favorite season after Autumn.ReplyDelete
It's my first favorite, then summer, then fall.Delete
No flowers here yet, but I'm glad to see some of the grass is coming back.ReplyDelete
My grass is still mostly dormant, but zoysia is slow to wake up int he spring.Delete
