Garden Interlude

The blog, or rather the blog author, is still undergoing repairs, but spring is helping, so here is something a bit more cheerful to look at till I get back on track:



INDOORS


Amaryllis


Amaryllis, now blooming



OUTDOORS


Bradford Pear



Narcissus triandrus 'Thalia Sun'













Narcissus 'Spellbinder' with hyacinth

  3. Happy to share it with you, Jane. And the phlox, Marian. That shot turned out a lot better than my usual ham-handed efforts at photography. ;_)

  5. Nothing pleases me more than a great amaryllis and a whole bunch of daffodils in the Spring. Such as these have saved my life on more than one occasion.

  8. Yes, I took them yesterday, k. It's supposed to hit 80 degrees here later today. Our spring is usually fully sprung by mid-April, then it's downhill through the tornadoes to a blistering 5-6 months of extreme heat. We'll still have some cold days and grey skies, but the worst is over. I do feel for all you Northies, as the blue sky and warmth is really something everyone is yearning for at this point

  10. I may just go ahead and die of jealousy! Snoop has taken up marking his territory on any damn thing I plant. I might have to switch from gardening to welding yard art.

  13. All of them are beautiful, and I always enjoyed pictures of your garden, but the phlox steals the show.

    1. Thanks Shay. I added a few new ones for you. I imagine you're ready for winter to be over in the frozen north.
