It's Alive!

At long last I have blooms!
 First blooms of the year...really! Much later than last year, it's been far too cold and rainy up here for any springtime action (heck, we had snow less than a week ago!)
 I decided to bring a few in before the deer find them, as I cannot afford my Liquid Fence deer repellent this year.
At least I get to use one of the cool flower frogs I picked up awhile back. Hopefully in the next few days there will be even more blooms to enjoy. Happy Spring y'all! :)

Wow, spring is really late here in Northern Nevada, too. I expect to go directly into summer one of these days.

Deb-Right?!

Laurel-Me too, it'll likely be 50 one day and 85 the next. Ah well, take it as it comes, eh? :)

Those little Glory-of-the-Snow really know how to brighten up a cool spring day. Sad to say, but no tulips in my yard. The squirrels always destroy them. I have crocuses and daffs though.

Sorry to hear that your tulips don't last...at least there are lots of crocus and daffodil varieties for you to enjoy :)

Hey Lisa, those tulips are pretty! Still nothing blooming up here. :( If you can't afford liquid fence mix 1 TBSP tabasco sauce with 1/2 cup of non detergent soap powder in one gallon of water. Spray on you plants to keep cats, dogs, mice, deer, and rabbits away from your plants.

Thanks Cinj!! I can't wait to try it!

I though spring would never come. When it did it lasted about 3 days here. Yesterday summer arrived as it was 89 degrees. I hear ya. :)

I call those lizard tulips on account of the pattern in the foliage. I have to get some in my garden someday.

That name is both cool and appropriate :) You really should try them, I've had these in my yard for 10 years and they're still blooming great!
