|Sir T found spring!|
I have been wandering around with my camera for the last few weeks and here are some of my favorite shots in no particular order. This blog is purely a celebration of spring.
|Forsythia always helps to kick off spring with the amazing cheerful yellow.|
|One of the “fancy” daffodil bulbs purchased last year and put in the big bulb bed.|
|Passover Lamb given to me by a friend that evening. So sweet with tete a tete daffodil.|
Our celebration of spring has to include our observance of Passover (sometimes called the last supper, recalling the night before Jesus died and the Children of Israel’s redemption from slavery and journey to freedom), Unleavened Bread (where we intentionally seek to remove sin from our lives as we clean the house and eat flat bread for a week), and First Fruits and Resurrection Day (He arose! Hallelujah!). Currently we are in the midst of the counting of fifty days until Pentecost.
|My front bed of bulbs. This was so much fun to watch come up and bloom!|
|Split corona daffodils from my mother-in-law’s farm|
|I love the beautiful blue of squill, a small bulb flower|
|One of my new tulip bulbs, I’m too lazy to go find the bag in the pile in the garage to tell you its name, |
but I really like the two toned colors.
|Spurge or euphorbia plant from a cutting that my sister gave me several years ago|
|White bleeding heart|
|My largest redbud tree in my yard received as a small stick on Arbor Day from the library. |
I have 4 trees that are pretty good sized now.
|I really enjoy the beautiful flowers of the redbud…. It should be called a pink bud though|
|Brunnera under my Japanese maple|
|Yes, I really like daffodils|
|Another daffodil… brightening up a gloomy grey day|
|Our first real harvest of greens for a salad. Walking by and eating a leaf doesn’t count as harvesting.|
|A bumblebee busily pollenating our apple blossoms. It is too cold for honey bees so the native bumblebees are essential for pollenating this spring.|
|My glorious bed of bulbs. I really like the two toned tulips and the contrast with the blue and yellow. This bed makes me happy and I go look at it every day.|
|Sigh…. My spring broke 5/8/17|
