Small, Round Flower Garden Brings Color and Variety



(LOOKING DOWN INTO A TULIP )


It's so great to get up in the morning at this exciting time of year.

Each day there's something new and wondrous to see.






























Last fall at the Christmas Tree Shops, packages of tulip and daffodil bulbs from Holland were on sale. About four packages landed in my shopping cart.

     All winter long, I thought about the bulbs under the frozen earth. When the weather started to warm up and the ground unfroze, squirrels began digging up the bulbs and eating them.



     

Finally, after some chicken wire protection,  (http://writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2011/04/bunny-wishes-and-chicken-wire-war.html )  green shoots popped up out of the earth. 

      At last the daffodils and tulips have bloomed and fill our front yard with bright colors.



    


The reds are the most brilliant among the tulip selections.  They sizzle with color.  Then, one pink tulip in the bunch is pretty, too, as well as the purples.

    

Combined with the frost resistant pansies(http://writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2011/04/pretty-pansies-brighten-up-front-yard.html) that are perky and resilient, the little round flower garden makes a bright welcoming sight for guests as well as for residents!

Do you live near the Christmas Tree store- we used to have one and they closed?! They don't ship anything either you lucky ducky.

I have to tell you Susan - I LOVE all flowers. I am highly allergic so I can't have them in my home - but when they are outside - I love them all - I call them eye candy from God. No calories either!

Your flowers are all beautiful - and I could look at them all day.

Do I have to stick to just one?

I love daffodils, pansies, primroses, lilacs....just to name a few.
