|New gardening gloves|
If you follow bloggers from England, they will show lovely fields of daffodils this time of year. Elizabethd and other always show the woodland daffodils. Then if you follow bloggers in Texas, they will share fields of Texas blue bonnets. Even though I have a family in Texas, I have yet to visit him when the blue bonnets are in bloom. When I have little else to do, I will use Google Earth to fly over the Netherlands to see the vast fields of tulips in rainbow colored strips going on endlessly.
Here at the Garden Spot, we have our own vast sea of yellow: dandelions in the front pasture. Mostly I see them as a vast nuisance, especially in the lawn. I have seen them proliferate the mountain meadows, thinking how beautiful they are there, too. Here at home, though, that thought is momentary for as they mature they will reseed and there will be even more. At the moment, though, dandelions are a cheerful reminder that Spring dances in the garden.
The daffodils, too, are splendid this year.
In their height of glory, they make me smile each time I see them. So far no snow to ruin them; just lost of rain to keep them strong and healthy.
I like the creamy yellow in the center of this one. The little grape hyacinths grow wild in abundance.
Lots of rain the last few days had helped garden growth along.
The Eastern Red Bud looks wonderful, the best results I have had with my red buds--ever.
The Asparagus is coming too. You must look closely for you can barely see it. This is the 3rd year, and the spears appear to be nice and big.
In the garden things are beginning to happen, too.
Apricot Blossoms. We will be very lucky to have apricots.
Peach blossoms: another wishful thinking or a lot of luck to get peaches.
And so the Gardening Season begins.
Next, a trip to Lowes Garden Center for pansies.
I missed Mosaic Monday because I had Little Lily over night,--ya' can't blog with a 3-year old around--, but I'll be visiting Judith and Lavender Cottage anyway to see what you posted. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll see you soon, too. You will probably find me at the very bottom of you comment list.
