Daffs are blooming!

A nice cheery bunch of daffodils is in full bloom next to the back gate. A beautiful sight!

Today I'm going to start soil preparation for a new vegetable patch, in a bare area of the perennial beds. Time to go find the spade and sharpen the edge..

carol, it's great, isn't it? i even have some hyacinth coming in as well. the magnolia tree is beginning to flower and i can see the buds on the forsithia and lilacs. spring has sprung!!!!!!

i've been out working the last two days cleaning and prepping. i love it.


RE: Daffs are blooming!

Oh, yes. It's so great! I just moved into a house in October and the first thing I did was plant bulbs. I thought I went a little crazy with them actually. But, now that I see them coming up, I definately need more. Still, the crocus are sooo cute. There is a picture below of my favorite. (As if you've never seen a crocus before.) Also, my yard is fenced, but behind that is a forest. There are daffodils growing way into the woods! It's so sweet. I wonder how they got there. Can bulbs just appear? Do you think squirrels could have carried them? I didn't plant any daffodils myself.

RE: Daffs are blooming!

YES,this is the best time of the yr. for me. My tulips are erupting from the earth. No buds yet though. I'd say maybe a week and a half from now, they will be blooming so nice. Our area is calling for cold temps. by end of next week, through the easter holiday. Bah humbug, why doesn't winter just go away already!!

RE: Daffs are blooming!

Yes, my daffodils are in full bloom, my forsythia bloomed today, and my hyacinths are blooming, too. My crocuses are done (boo-hoo), but I did see a grape hyacinth in bloom, with more to follow. The rest of my property looks dull and brown, so how I delight in these little spots of color!
