Also welcome to my new friends. I've said it before, but feel it's worth mentioning again, if you are following my blog and I haven't followed you, it's because your little picture doesn't link me back to you. Leave a comment with a link trail and I will happily return the favor :)
I love a clean slate. Especially when it refers to a newly tilled vegetable garden. My FIL tilled a few weeks ago and I got my lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, pole beans and carrot seeds planted. We had a good rain (why it looks flat and not freshly tilled) just after and I'm hoping to see little baby veggies peeking through any day. I still have lots of other seeds to get in in the coming weeks (have a 45x25 area to fill!). And I should be getting asparagus any time now, too. Yum. Yum.
I love flowers. I plant at least fifty new bulbs every year. One day my entire front yard will be tulips and daffodils in the spring. Of course, every year fewer tulips from previous years bloom. But that's okay, my favorites are out in full swing right now. Isn't this the prettiest color:
I even found daffodils with the same interior-ring color:
These grape hyacinths are going to take over the entire world one day! I planted about 20 bulbs, 3 years ago, and they are now growing in thick clumps along the entire front of the flower bed. That's okay - they're gorgeous.
As evidenced above, I am a horrible photographer. I didn't come close to doing these beauties justice. Nothing makes my green eyes greener than those with photographic talent! But, I figure the flowers are pretty enough that everyone will get the gist of it :)
Have a Happy Monday and great rest of the week. Oh, and don't ask why my text is all funky? User error, I'm sure.
