Spring (?) Blooms

The weather here has been up and down like a yo-yo. One week, weeding and working in the garden, the next week, the temps drop way below average (here that is 50s), and the daylilies can't decide what to do.

Anyway, I will attempt to upload some photos from the new photobucket and we'll see how it goes.

To start with, the silly tulip tree keeps blooming and then getting bitten by frost:

Some of the daffs started blooming in late January:

And others are just now blooming:

and the yellow part of this one and its friends, will eventually be pink:

The pink tulips have been blooming for a while, but I am just beginning to see some of the others:

And, the pansies have been pretty all winter:

The bridal wreath has put on buds and been bitten at least will be much less than lovely this spring; you can see the blackened bits and the little buds (which were blackened this week:(

Well, there's some of the blooms in this silly yo-yo "winter', Julia and Jean.

RE: Spring (?) Blooms

Thank you for the tour Kay,I injoyed it very much.You have more blooming, then I do.I have nothing that resembles a flower yet, well, just one daffodil blooming.Firdt one I have seen around here in a few years.Use to haave daffs blooming every where, but they slowly disappeared over the years.


RE: Spring (?) Blooms

You know, I keep hearing about Tulip trees but I don't think I've ever seen one before. Thank you for posting your pics!

RE: Spring (?) Blooms

Thanks Kay. I needed some spring bulb pics :-). I have a tulip or what I call the Jane Magnolia tree (more like a bush) here. It happens here too. Starts to put on buds, begins to open and then gets zapped by a cold night. The blooms are so pretty though when you can get them to open all the way.

Love the pink tulips. I planted a lot of those last fall along with reds, yellows and I think some purple. And of course I really like those double daffs. I have a few of those too. NICE!

BTW, I'll take 50's. We have been in the 20's for the past few days with lake effect snow. :-(.

Hubby had hip surgery so not much time to read the forums lately.


RE: Spring (?) Blooms

Here's what our new Jane Magnolia (planted a year ago) looked like yesterday. We have another one in the front yard that is mostly leafed out and finished with its first round of blooms now. Great little trees.


RE: Spring (?) Blooms

Lovely pictures. Nothing better than to see those daffs in the spring. I have several weeks yet before I see any bloom other than crocus. Your tulips are lovely also. Thanks for posting.


RE: Spring (?) Blooms

Been cold here also but your garden looks great to me. Hurray for spring bloom.
