Last of the Daffodils

I took a few pictures of the daffodil varieties that I hadn’t yet posted on the last sunny day we had.  Today, they’re all on their way out and are drooping from all the rain we’ve had.

Narcissus

Sunday Stroll

Our daffodils are now in full bloom.  There are many different varieties, but since I just ordered a mix for naturalizing, I don’t know their names.  The yellows, oranges, whites, and even peaches create a sunny sea of color.

Old Fashioned Daffodils

Yesterday I snuck up the road to pick some of these daffodils from an old empty house.  I like to think that the woman who planted the bulbs years ago would be happy that I’m enjoying them.

Spring Break Gardening

This week is spring break and I’m planning to enjoy the time off on my vacation.  The sunny location I’m visiting is right in my own yard.  I spent today outside in the gardens, cleaning up and getting ready for the growing season.  When all the work was done, I grabbed my camera so I could post an update.

I started the day by planting  more raspberries, this time Royalty Purple, and some Chester blackberries.  The photo above shows leaves on the Heritage Red raspberries we planted about a month ago.

In the vegetable garden, the mixed baby lettuce is starting to emerge, which is the first among the many different lettuce varieties I planted.

The peas are up and stretching toward the sun.  I hope to see their tendrils wrapping around the wires before long.

I weeded and cleaned out the front and back flower gardens, as the hydrangeas, bleeding hearts and peonies are coming out of dormancy.  But the flowers already in bloom stole the show.

The daffodils are still beautiful, as more and more of them open each day.  I’m already scheming to plant more of these bulbs up around our mailbox in the fall.  The one day of planting is well worth the show in spring.

The potted pansies are still showing off, thriving with the chilly evening temperatures.

Spring Flowers

Sunday Stroll

The daffodil bulbs that I planted last spring are up, and a few have even started to open.  I was so happy to see those little dots of cheery yellow out the window.
