I got back from my bike ride this morning (4/12/11) and took a few pictures. Here is what’s blooming around my home, Chez Rea.
I have two little clusters of pink hyacinths, still going after, oh, five or more years. They’re not as scrawny as I’ve seen them before, so they must like their current spot. They started out in the front yard and later moved to the full sun bed in the backyard. It looks like they’re blooming too early this year to use in a Mothers Day bouquet. (Yes, Mom R., that’s why they look familiar to you.)
The vinca is on the shady side of the front yard. Such beautiful blooms!
Of course, I had to take a few pictures of things that weren’t actually blooming. My chives have come up, so I snapped a picture of them to remind myself to make some Chives & Dill later today (see next post). I also took a couple pictures of my potted rose tree which I unburied a couple days ago (on the same day I spread corn gluten over my lawn). I was so happy to see it’s still alive! I had been worried because it was bigger than my old rose tree and I did not bury it as well.
I have a few things blooming inside the house, too.
