A Stroll in the Garden

“Blossom by blossom the spring begins.”
 — Algernon Charles Swinburne


I am not having a vegetable garden this year, as my Hubby is creating a new one with easier access and easier to water, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything to see!

I live in the north, so my season is a bit behind other bloggers.  

So enjoy this little garden stroll with me!

*Clicking on a photo will give you a closer look!

I almost missed the Crown Imperials; they bloomed while I was away on vacation.

I find it interesting that, in my garden at least, the tulips seem to bloom by color division, rather than color explosion.

The pink ones generally bloom first.



Then the red ones spring forth!



Last, but not least, the yellow tulips are just now beginning to flower.



The rock cress is wonderful!

While the grape hyacinth (and the giant ones, too) are nearly finished with their display.

While the hyacinths and daffodils fade, the narcissus is just beginning a happy show!



And the magnificent crabapple is teasing us!


It’s About the Blooms

The intent was there.  I really meant to get the weeding done.  And I did.  A little.

But then there was the retreat. 

And it has been raining ever since I got home.

So…for those who asked…and for those who didn’t…more of what’s blooming in my garden.
