Look What’s Blooming!

I returned from my trip this weekend to find more bulbs and even some trees in bloom. Some of the tulips have started to open up along the walk. If you look closely you will see where the rabbits nibbled on the foliage. April 2010 165

I am very happy to see the trees bloom, but it does mean that I will lose a couple of great mountain views. Fortunately, we live in a valley and by carefully choosing where we plant trees in our backyard, we can guarantee mountain views from the living room and kitchen.

I enjoy spring,; each day brings a new surprise. I can’t wait to see what I will discover tomorrow. The weather is supposed to warm up enough for me to transplant some more of my veggies to the garden. I can’t wait to get my hands in the dirt.  What is blooming in your garden? Any exciting discoveries lately?

To see what is blooming in gardens around the country, visit Bloomin’ Tuesday.

We have lots of rabbits in my neighborhood. They haven't gotten into my neighbors gardens yet. They seem to be content in the yard behind me where no one is living.

Linda- The rabbits like dogless yards, so I have herds of rabbits roaming my yard. I put my vegetables in raised garden beds with chicken wire to keep out the rabbits.

Hi Alea, so glad you joined us for Blooming Tuesday.
Don't you just hate it when the rabbits come and eat your plants and vegetables? We also have ground squirrels that are worse than the rabbits here in southern california.
Happy Blooming Tuesday! I am late tonight but I still made it!

I feel the same way - every morning and afternoon I check all my plants for any new developments!
