Daffodils, Hyacinths and Mums, oh my!

Yesterday was such bright sunshine but without the warm temps. Today is not so sunny but the temps are much better. It's supposed to get even better as the week goes on. Finally!

I've been watching my daffodils and hyacinth coming up. The daffodils still haven't bloomed but the colors on the hyacinth are beginning to show. I swear I planted pink, white, blue and purple ones last year. Why are they all blue???

The same thing happens to my mums. I plant different colors and they all come up yellow!

the hybrid freezes out of them, it's why all iris eventually become that purple color

Tis the season to be planting!

I am ready to do a little yard work without having to wear thermals...

That is odd! I never really noticed, but you are right. It is hard to get different colors.
We are finally getting a very light spattering of rain. It is cold rain, though...yuck!

I've never planted any flowers before so I don't know. My yard is a mess right now. Needs some serious work.

Ahh, soon Carny will be back to exposing herself in the park.

My wife has the "green thumb" around here. She has a bunch of perennials planted on the side of the house. No daffodils or hyacinths or mums (oh, my). Got some bitchin' lavender, though.
Warm winds are on the way.

Really Jim??? Well I'm glad it's not that I've totally lost my marbles then!

Hi Barry! I think today may be the day for me to get the flower beds whipped into shape!

Hi Julie, thanks for visiting!

Hi Lass!! Mine is a mess as well.

Mike, I'll call you when I do!

Michael, I have some bitchin lavendar too! I love it! I can't keep my hands off it when I walk by. That's the most wonderful smell!
