Weird and wonderful weather continues. We are getting rain this weekend, and although it may spoil spring break for many kids, I see a trip to the bookstore in our future. Temperatures in the 80s with humidity. What month is this anyway?
It feels like June without roses and daylilies. Species and smaller tulips like ‘Lady Jane’ are melting as my friend Gail from Clay and Limestone says, but I’m still glad we haven’t had a freeze. So far. With Oklahoma, you just never know. Don’t plant your tomatoes outside yet. Please?
It will just make you feel unsuccessful if they freeze, and you’ll think you have a brown thumb which you do not. All of us can have green thumbs and even hands.
All the bulbs I planted are coming up, and it’s fun to greet old favorites and meet new favorites-to-be. Spring always makes me believe there is a God who loves me. Why else would it be so beautiful?
You can also just see the grape hyacinths in the lower left of the frame. I have two clump of grape hyacinths here, and they have slowly grown larger. Unfortunately, grape hyacinths don’t seem to like any other bed very much. Funny isn’t it? Micro-climates abound in every garden so it’s good to try things in more than one place. If something isn’t thriving, and you really like it, move it somewhere else. I’ve moved things sometimes three or four times.
There are so many things blooming here today I can’t list or show them all. I only hit the highlights. The narcissus or daffodils are blooming everywhere, and the smaller ones have nearly finished. Now, we are moving on to the larger trumpets, and tulips are beginning to show color and bloom. I probably won’t have anything by Easter, but that’s just the way it goes.
I’m not complaining. How could I with all of this? Thanks to Carol for hosting Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
