Everything's comin up Tulips!

And you thought birds hatched from eggs?

Not always!

For some reason, the majority of Spring Bulbs I planted were PINK and Purple





 But Pink works well in every garden.



There WAS  one row of RED DarwinTulips;
 Very flashy with the purple Pansies.

Tomorrow we'll plant Morning Glories!
In many colors....

  2. Oh so beautiful! Did you just plant those bulbs this past autumn? It's been a long time since I've planted bulbs. I just rely on those that keep coming back up, but their numbers are dwindling. You've inspired me to add some this year! -Jenn

    1. Lorraine, I didn't realize how many PINKS I had planted, glad I had a lot of daffodils to even out the palette.

  6. Nice!

    I like how the birds are flowers or the flowers are birds.

  7. Dear Jeri - your art work as always is exquisite. Love the birds hatching from the tulips. Pink and Purple colors in the garden certainly work for me. Is that lettuce growing near your tulips? As always love seeing your art and gardens. Have a happy start to April. Hugs!

  8. Your garden is once again making me itch to get out in mine. So far I have daffodils and 3 set tulip leaves, no stems. But I see perennials starting to push up through the warming earth. I can't wait to see your garden in full bloom!

  13. Jeri,
    I just recently came across your information and stayed up late into the night smitten with your blog. We met and I purchased a piece from you a few years ago at the first Country Living Fair in Lebanon. I was an instant fan. I've just begun to tell a large number of folks about you, your work, and your blog...Keep posting!
    Fondly, Curt
