Mt. Olympus, as seen from our back yard lawn area.
It is still snow capped.
(OK fine!...actually it was snow COVERED just two days ago...)
I will be adding the golden leafed white blossoming Bleeding Heart variety to the garden this week when it becomes available at our garden center.
I have found that to really enjoy Bleeding Hearts, I need to be inches away from the blossoms.
The dew that clings to the white dart area astonishes me.
Will you laugh if I tell you this makes me think of two lips?
(Wonder what the tulip would say if it could really speak).
Paint brush like strokes and pencil sketched lines on tulip petals...my favorite kinds each have those details.
A litter of tulips...a flock of tulips...a chorus of tulips?
Need to learn the collective noun for tulips.
We planted several dozen more tulips last fall.
Next fall...I think we will double that number again.
That thought is true for all my spring blooming bulbs.
How can anyone NOT plant spring blooming bulbs???
I took a little drive over to Millcreek Canyon on Sunday afternoon. Not much going on up in the canyon as of yet...just the slightest breath of green to be seen in the forest.
On the way home I had to pull over.
I spotted this nest in a tree...had to get a picture of course!
Isn't that a messy looking nest?
I am sure it is quite snuggy nice inside...but thought the mother bird might be a bit surprised by the now leafing out branches that anchors the nest.
Spring is in full color every where now.
I'm sure we will still have a rainy days and even some snowy days to come.
But for the most part...it truly is springtime!
