Spring Garden Tour

Grab your boots...Come on...Let's go for a walk around the yard! The sun is out and the flowers are starting to bloom. During the cold, dreary days of winter, it seemed as if these days would n-e-v-e-r get here. While I know it is early and we could still have several more cold snaps, I am very thankful for some color in the yard and the warmer temperatures we have been blessed with over the past few days.
A few sprigs of muscari...not sure how they got to the middle of the yard...but I'll let 'em stay there since they are pretty right now!

I ♥ Daffodils! The golden blooms cheer me up and make me smile.

More blooms are opening each day.

 A few wild violets...not sure where these came from either! I have many plants that have been divided and shared with me and I think the violets hitch hiked in when no one was looking!The hens and chicks are trying to hatch out in the wheelbarrow.

Only in Texas will you see cactus and daffodils together! Ok, well maybe not the only state, but its an unlikely combination.

 You gotta love daffies...

The larkspur is starting to shoot up. Larkspur is one of my all time favorite flowers to grow and to use as a cut flower at the flower shop. I always joke that when I die, my family has to check with the flower shop and make sure they can get larkspur and sunflowers before they plan the time for my funeral and schedule according to flower availability!

And this is Trixie being bashful. She was saying "No Mama, please don't take my picture, I hate it when you have that camera out!"

The tulips are getting ready to blooms as well. Can't wait to see their colorful little blooms as well.
I'm not sure what these pink flowers are. I got them last year at the garden center. There wasn't a name tag, but I like 'em and they have been very hardy. They survived the heat last summer and cold this winter plus they are blooming early, so they are a keeper.

Well thanks for coming over and taking a walk in the garden with me. I've done all the talking now, so tell me is anything blooming in your part of the country?


  1. Your garden is lovely...maybe next year I can think about flowers now that I have a tiller that works! Like the old wheelbarrow idea and have one just itching to be a planter.

  2. Lovely flowers! Especially the daffodils. Those are rather rare flowers here in FL. Larkspur is also one of my very favorite flowers, they're such a lovely color.
    btw, Your dog is really really cute!!!
    Thanks for the tour! xxxx~Kelsey
