Cloud sat posed next to the bouquet of flowers, with a look on her face like she demanded her photo be taken. It’s good to stop and admire the flowers sometimes!
Every year I like spring more and more. It’s hard to stay sad when pretty little flowers are poking up through the ground, and the world explodes with color.
A bit of a theme has appeared in the garden this year.. My wildflower garden was suddenly a sea of yellow and purple. A bit of an unusual color combination, but I didn’t mind it! The Allium bulbs that were planted last fall had sprouted up as fluffy purple spheres. And the lone foxglove from […]
It was late March, and it snowed again. For the fourth time. It rarely snows even once in March. I was ready for warm weather, but I can never help being excited when I see the fluffy white snow cover all the flowers. When snow was predicted in the forecast, my camera came to work […]
It was a winter that was much colder than recent yeas had been. The flowers that begun to spring up in January of last year were nowhere in sight until March. The cold continued, and it snowed more times in March than it had for the entire winter. On the second day of spring, as […]

My Mom’s house is surrounded with spectacular gardens that she has been working on for the past twenty something years. I never really planned on having a big garden myself, but every year I find myself planing more and more flowers. I can see now where I inherited my love of gardens from! The back […]
I’ve grown to really like Tulips. They never were one of my top favorite flowers, but I like that they seem to stay in bloom longer than any of my other bulbs, which bloom for a couple days and then turn into what looks like an old brown tissue. This fall I am going to plant […]
I am always amazed at how quickly winter turns into spring. How one day you see some green poking up through the dirt, and then barely a week later. Flowers everywhere. This Hummingbird Moth loved the flowers! And just as quickly as they bloomed, the flowers faded away. Not to be seen again for another […]
