First Day of Spring!

This time yesterday, everywhere I looked, the garden was covered in snow.  The landscape was dull and grey...with one vibrant exception!

Funny how 24 hours can make such a difference!  Well, it hasn't changed this drastically!  But, oh...would be so nice, eh?  Let's stroll through this lovely garden display from the Philadelphia Flower Show.


Anywhere else, these bold colors would surely clash,
but in a garden...anything goes. 
Even this adorable little outhouse at the end of the path.
If you haven't tried growing tulips, they are easy!  Though if in Zones 8 and above, treat them as annuals.  This two-toned beauty is named Kees Nelis.  They last well cut, and even continue growing in a vase.  Try adding the petals to a salad...they are edible.  Really, they are!
Well, it's a gorgeous day so this gardener is headin' out to limb up and clean up.
Enjoy this first day of Spring, y'all!

  3. Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of this website. It's
    simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance. I must say you've
    done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me
    on Safari. Exceptional Blog!
