Ummm....I don't want to alarm you but I've noticed what could be a stalker lurking in the bushes. Have a look.... he's to the left, almost totally obscured by the foliage.Be careful...
Muscari. Yellow tulips? And then are those bigger guys callas?(The gnome is freaking me out, man.)
excitement!! can't wait to see the blooms.
Froggie, you mean him with the maniacal looking grin and eyes?!!The bigger guys are tulips and the yellow ones are crocus, Citizen. Aren't those muscari cute? I'm not sure about the others.I felt left out with others posting pictures of their gardens, Char, so I bought this at the market this morning. Can't wait to see them grow!
You guys are obviously a few weeks, if not months ahead of us vis a vis spring. No sign of buds yet in any format. We're still waiting for the snow to melt. We do have 2 good days coming up...fingers crossed (How long until the villa?? I actually have a real live friend who has bought a run down villa in Italy and is restoring it during all her vacation times so she can go live there when she retires. I follow her progress on Facebook and am dead jealous)
Hey, looks like Spring to me! Do you think there will be anything pink in there?
What a lovely idea, to have your own spring garden. I hope that lurker is not a vandal...
Funny about the stalking gnome, hehe.You know, I find the soil and wood chips as beautiful as the leaves and buds.
All I am waiting for is for my alder berry trees to grow buds and for my jasmine in the pot to really grow so I know it survived winter. These things will give me as much pleasure as the tulips and the crocuses give you.
I hope your gnome is not vegetarian...
My kids put a gnome right outside my window next to the computer. I keep the curtains closed all the time.And that's a really pretty garden.
Oh I love this - I once had a pot, not dissimilar but full of primroses!Spring comes to you while here the leaves are turning brown.
We've had no snow for weeks, XUP, but it was only yesterday that I noticed a bit of softness to the ground.Do you ever watch those British reality shows about renovating run down dream homes in France in Italy - I would never want to do that. Our villa will be move-in ready.
You know I will admire them, Pinklea, no matter their affliction.
My gnome is too happy to be a vandal, Meggie. And I'm not sure what he eats, Delwyn, but he seems well-fed!
You have very simple tastes, Ruth! You could have a whole garden of woodchips on my insanely hot balcony all summer.
Oh, I hope your jasmine survived the winter, Irene, they smell so lovely.
Thanks, Vanilla. It is fun to visit the other side of the world during the seasonal changes. At the beginning of last winter I spent a lot of time looking over blogs from Australia and NZ and SA, searching for new growth.
Kylie, I don't blame you.
I agree. I don't even paint my place. When it gets too shabby I just move. I'm still jealous of her villa though - it looks gorgeous
Brilliant idea! Look forward to seeing future glories!
That sure is a happy little gnome! Much better than the surly ones!Lovely dish garden. Can't wait to see it in full bloom.
Oh, wait! That's not a dish, it's a pot! Oops!
XUP, whew. We're on the same wavelength. I'm jealous that you personally know someone with a villa.
Gilly, don't worry, more photos will come. Not much change so far. and Susan, I only surround myself with happy 'people'.
Oh, I see - crocuses that haven't fully opened.
They were flopping open with the sun yesterday, Citizen, but nothing else has changed. I was hoping they'd all bloom at the same time.
Oh, lovely! Very pretty. And love that gnome!
Thanks, Babaloo, and he does look very happy to have a job to do.
Glad you stopped by. For anyone who stumbled here, don't be shy to say 'hi' and let me know you've visited!
