Slowly but surely my little garden is coming back to life. The irises shown to the right seem to have survived their late-season transplant from my Mother-in-law's garden. I'm looking forward to seeing them because I never actually saw them in bloom over at her house.
I believe that these are tulip buds... seem to be the right location and right color for the buds anyway. They never really came up properly last year, too crowded and lots of old nasty bulbs. I dug them out this past summer and put them away in my garage. Hopefully a replanting with some nice blood meal will do the trick. Maybe this year I won't have to travel all the way to Iowa to have a tulip festival! I love my Dutch roots.
And these little jems are my "King of the Striped" Crocus. I hope they look as cute as the picture did on the box! Pin It Now!
