It's time to join Today's Flowers! With a temperature today (Sunday) of 92 degrees I won't be needing that snow shovel.
May? May!! May I safely put my snow shovel away now?
Time to say farewell to the happy daffodils. I have at least eight different "pockets" in the front. If there is an empty spot in the fall, I start digging a hole and put a bag of bulbs in and wait for spring.
Each group is a different color.
With trumpets from small to large. With all the wind, they are wearing some tattered and torn petals. Farewell.
My tulips are planted deep in the soil so they won't bloom so early and get knocked down by the gusty, almost constant, winds of spring.
Today was a wonderful, warm, and calm afternoon when I got home.
My violets! ♥
Basket of Gold.
Also known as Gold Alyssum.
Flowering quince blooms on old wood.
Bright red flowers.
It gets better every year, but I do have some dead wood to trim out.
Pink flowering almond. Not many buds are open yet, so I'm hoping we won't have a really cold night again. Last year only half of the bush blossomed.
Being outside helped me relax after school. May is always crazy busy with so much to do! Cookbook project is finished but must make more copies. More people came to our Literacy Night and I promised the kids they would have a cookbook soon. I even get to go on the Fourth Grade field trip to Centennial Village in Greeley. I love that place!
