Yes, I think I have done one of these posts every year since we moved to MA. But I can't help it. This naturalized daffodil meadow planted by the previous owners is one of the things I love best about this house. The first photo is the view from the deck. The next few show the variety of blooms. I think as the years go by, hybrids become genetic mutants, freaky fantastic flowers derived from those traditional types.
Daffodils have made their way inside the house too. This beautiful little painted cup was $1.50 at our recent church rummage sale (half price during the last half hour).
Other blooming plants include the cherry trees and viburnum. Lilac is on the way.
I'm planning to put bean and pea seeds into the garden tomorrow, but last year's kale is going strong already.
Please tell me what is blooming in your part of the world. What's going on in your vegetable garden? I'm confused about when to plant because of the heat and dry weather. This feels like July not April. Last year at this time, we were still having freezing nights. Today it got well into the 80's on the day of the Boston Marathon.
