Regular walks have resumed!! And it’s sooooo nice to see the town in bloom.
For some reason, it seems to be only yellow and red tulips around here. I think I’ll cause quite a sensation when I have a whole rainbow of them in my gardens.
There’s one house here that appears to have as much enthusiasm for flowers as I do – the yard is almost all garden. And I was delighted to see hellebore!
This flower is on my to-get list. This is actually the first time I’ve ever seen it in person. They actually had several different colours, but I didn’t want to trespass all over their yard to get good pictures. These ones were fairly close to the sidewalk. Aren’t they stunning? When I get mine, they will go in the “woodland garden” I plan on making!
I loved the charm of this little pansy planter plunked on top of the old milk can. It looks like the frost got to the pansies, but it’s an idea I’m probably going to steal as I have TWO milk cans for the garden now (Dave’s Mom gave me one on the weekend).
And last, this is a house on the corner of our street. It’s evident that it once had border gardens beside the path and across the front of the porch, but they have been removed and seeded with grass. You could tell because there is a slight variation in level where the garden used to be.
It must have been filled in the summer or fall, long after the spring bulbs were done and forgotten about….
But the bulbs don’t care about the grass! What was it they said in Jurassic Park?… Nature finds a way!
