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,'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.

  1. My irises have come and gone. The yuccas are flowering, but Daltrey ate the tops off many of them. Or should I say, bit the tops off, then spit them out. Come of the indigenous cacti are also flowering. I don't plant stuff because I take zero joy in maintenance.

  2. I love spring with all the plants renewing themselves! My plants are fairing ok with the terrible drought we are having in Texas. I have to water more.

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

  4. It really is here I finally think. Spring can't leave us now. I love all your blossoms in the basement.

  5. Great pics but what is a noxious weed "B" list???

    Just wondering.



What thoughts do you have?
