A few images from around my house.













Tulips are coming up for the first time.






A couple of houseplants thrown in for good measure.

The peonies are coming up fast. There's ginger lilies returning. And hostas, and the plum tree is about to sing.



Almost all of my spring flowers are done. This year was too long and drawn out for the daffs. Some started in late December. Instead of a drift, it was more of a dribble. But I did find some crocuses planted ages ago by the lady that built the gardens originally.



My favorite daffodil this year. I didn't plant it. It was already here.

Thank you so much for allowing us to see your beautiful flowers. What is the name of the big, red one.

Thanks for your compliments! The red flower is a camellia. It is a vine type that is on a trellis. It was here when I moved into the house.

I especially love the crocus and daffodil paperhouse. Bulbs really warm a cold winter heart.
Matter of fact I was thinking today maybe I can get some cheap bulbs after they have bloomed from some local stores. I love a good deal and you can't go wrong with most bulbs.

tulips should rebloom for you next year. Just be sure to fertilize them in the fall with a bloom booster. That's the name on the package. Those crocuses were here when I bought the house. This is the first year I have seen them bloom. Last spring I cut the grass too early and they were all mowed down. I thought it was an invasive grass. I've since turned that whole area into a perennial garden. I'm really glad I did. That purple striped crocus is gorgeous.

Paperhouse, that's a peony in your first picture? Oh happy day, I have a mystery plant coming up in my front border that I was wondering about, it looks just like that. I'm thrilled if it is indeed a peony. It's growing so fast I was afraid it was some kind of weed, LOL.

Yep. It starts out as a red nub poking through the ground. This was about two weeks ago.
