Petals and Puddle Jumping
On Tuesday, I snuck out as the storm was rolling in to take pictures of our trees in bloom. Today, I patiently waited until the snow melted to take pictures of a few of our flowers.
I am always amazed at how the pansies handle snow. We have dug the walk out of several feet of snow in the past, to find our pansies smiling cheerfully at us.
The tulips continue to open around the yard. They would create a better visual display if they would all open at the same time, but I think I enjoy this slower process a little more.
You can see that the leaves of these tulips have been nibbled on by rabbits.
While I was busy taking pictures, my little helper decided to empty the bird bath:
So that he might have a puddle to splash in:
And because I cannot help showing you future flowers, I leave you with a picture of one of my mums:
Tomorrow I will have a post on frugal rabbit deterrents and on Saturday I will share some very exciting developments in my edible garden.
To see some truly lovely gardens, visit Flaunt Your Flowers Friday at Tootsie Time.
