Flowers, Flowers, Flowers, Flowers and more Flowers

I hope you are ready to look at lots of tulips, here we go.

These tulips are so cute. This is there first year, they are kind of tiny.

This is a type of Lily. It blossoms kind of upside down.

This is a flower bed by the driveway.
It has been planted about three years.
This year it finally filled in and looks GREAT !!

Lots more daffodils, notice the lighting on this one.

Groups of tulips. This first group is Darwin tulips.
They were my Mothers' favorite.
She always told me to grow that varitey.
This is there second year, they have long stems and I think they are beautiful.

This group is 10 years old. Some people divide tulips but I never do.
They seem to be a little smaller, but I love the large groups.

As I looked out my east window this morning, the sun was just coming up.
My garden bench looked so peaceful with the flowers beginning to bloom.
The grass is finally green. Green is such a wonderful Spring color.

Shaker is learning to stalk birds. He looks so sneaky here.

A small beautiful tulip, this is it's first year.

Greenhouse - Cold Frame

I planted my greenhouse garden today.
As you can tell by the photographs, I did kind of a square foot garden.
I planted four types of carrots, five types of radishes,
seed onions and 66 onion sets and several other things.
I couldn't believe how much I could plant in a 3' X 4' area.
I will keep you posted.
Thanks again Bob and Joan for this cool greenhouse.
