Spring flowers

I hate to complain about the weather again, and I'm not really complaining, it's just crazy! We had spring back in February and March, winter in April and May, and now we're having summer weather. The forecast says we'll be back to spring by the end of the week though. After my last post, the weather really turned nice and I enjoyed some beautiful days to garden and enjoy our spring flowers. My mother's tulips can always be counted on, even when they get snowed on, and my Grandma's daffodils still come up every year. I love that they remind me of her. She had a true green thumb and her poor yard just hasn't been the same since she left us. I so appreciate these spring flowers. They are tough and dependable, like the women who planted them. I try to plant some everywhere I live, in hopes that someone else will enjoy and appreciate them as much as I do.


  1. I love flowers-these are gorgeous!

  2. oh, my granny(who raised me) had tulips, daffodils, and hiacynths, and crocus. Hers were always dependable, too. I have tried to plant flowers in my garden that remind me of her as well. All it takes is taking the aroma in, and I immediately feel like I am in her presence.
