Sunshine, Daffodils and Misplaced Tulips
May 21, 2014 § 2 Comments
The forecast had called for rain but we were lucky to get a gorgeous sunny day instead. This is great news for our flowers, grass and gardens. We’ve had too much rain already and not nearly enough warm sun.
So, finally, things are happily growing where they should be…
That’s the front garden with violets, daffodils and a hosta sprouting out of last year’s autumn leaves. I have to get in there, clean it out and put down some fresh soil.
This, however, is totally out of place…
It’s a two toned tulip growing, quite happily, in the middle of the most weed infested part of our lawn. I can only imagine that some local squirrel stole the bulb from one of our more ardent gardening neighbours and buried it there knowing full well no one would look for it on “this” lot. ;)
We need to dig up that whole patch of lawn so I’m thinking about transplanting the tulip and bringing it inside. A matter for some research. In any case, it’s really nice to have something other than snow, cold and boredom to talk about.
