Yesterday was full of surprises in and out of the garden. First off I got a nice surprise package in the mail from Rose of Prairie Rose’s Garden . She sent me some single heirloom and yellow Hollyhock seeds for my garden. Thanks Rose, they will make a nice addition to Grandma’s Garden bed. The majority of this bed will be filled with flowers that grew in her and her mom’s garden. This will give this area a nice cottage effect next summer.
The past couple of days have been pretty mild so I took a stroll through the front garden beds and found these Crocus pushing through the soil. That is surely a sign of spring being just around the corner. These are some of the earliest bloomers in my garden each season. I just planted these this past fall and the color, if I remember correctly is a deep purple.
Even the large flowering Daffodils are coming up now. I really should of divided these last spring after they finished flowering. These have been growing in my yard for years and years. When we moved in here 12 years ago I found these growing in the lawn and dug them up and moved them into a bed. Forty years ago this subdivision was all farm country, so I wonder if these bulbs date back to then or what. These bloom earlier than any other Narcissus I have in my garden. Hope you all are having a nice weekend too! 🙂
