Let's see what's blooming at the cottage! But first, I really feel the need to vent: BLOGGER &GOOGLE, if you want us all to switch to Chrome, why not just tell us, so that we don't waste hours and days trying to figure out why we can't upload pictures to our blogs??? Ok, I feel better now!
Oh, the joys of filling up the old station wagon with flowers and fertilizer! I'll admit that I've started planting way earlier than normal, but I can't seem to help myself!
Crocuses. Always the first flowers to bloom around here, and I miss them already.
Hellebores, or more commonly called Lenten Roses. So shy, they always hang their pretty heads!
Daffodils, or Jonquils, way back in The Secret Garden.
I don't know why, but these particular daffodils make me grin like an idiot when I see them!
The forsythia bushes are doing better and better every year. They seem to enjoy the severe pruning that I've been giving them once they've bloomed.
Siberian Squill. Every time I would try to take a picture of them, their little heads would be all closed up. If you think that you might like an electric blue flower in your garden, Siberian Squill is for you!
Oh my goodness, I love the heck out of this vintage lawn spreader. I found it in my Mom's garage, and I plan to put a clear coat on it to preserve it. Can't you just picture white pumpkins, mums and tons of gourds in it for Fall? I can!
After several attempts, I just couldn't get this fountain/birdbath to stop leaking. I bought it at a garage sale several years ago, and it wasn't even supposed to work, but it did, and it's given us, and the birds, so much pleasure. So I pulled out the pump, which I will be using to make another fountain.......
And turned it into a planter. Along with the Asparagus Ferns, I plan to pop some Nasturtiums in there too. Can't wait to see them tumbling over the sides. I've heard that they're edible, and I think that this is the year that I'm going to put some in a salad!
Look what I found under a cement statue. The very first ladybug of the season! With all of the rain we've had, I'm sure the mosquitoes won't be far behind. So, what's blooming in your garden?
