Promises

I can see the promise of spring - finally!

Swelling buds on our Austrian Pine

Brave Iris peaking up through the soil....
And look, a flower!
Sadly, that sweet purple flower is Redstem filaree.
It is on the Colorado noxious weed "B" list.
Please, oh please, don't tell the weed control guy that
I have it in my garden!!!
Well, OK....it's gone now. I just pulled it out by the roots!
I promise...

The promise of blossoms on our Canada Red Cherry

This is an Easter Lily I planted years ago...
Well, better late than never I always say!


Part of my future garden...

A Zinnia gets ready to bloom!
I think it's rushing the season!

Cucumber blossoms in the basement!

Young life...
A promise of the flowers to come.

  4. Spring is so fun for gardener's! I love finding bulbs/plants I either forgot I planted or that Ma Nature helped replant sparingly.
