The Splendour of Spring

Click to enlarge
Along with my fellow northerners, we're craving spring as the snow is finally starting to melt away.  The species tulips in my front garden are a favourite and the magnolia 'Leonard Messel' is spectacular when in bloom.  The purple pots of tulips and fantail pussy willow bouquet are from the Netherlands Bulb Company.
Come join us for Mosaic Monday, hosted by Mary at Little Red House.

  1. Awesome purples! I was working on my email and your post popped up. Breathtaking. I just bought deep purple petunas in a hanging basket for our front door and hubby outside cleaning the screen door. We have had a lot of wind, sandy wind, lately. We are three miles from the Gulf Coast Beaches so kind of unusual, but the door needed a fresh up. Anyway, your post popped up and I just had to take a looksee and so glad I did. Love, love, love the purples! Do you know where I can get instructions for making a mosaic? Someone gave them to be before vac and I lost them. Thank you for any help. I feel so clueless with the fine tuning of blog pics and such.

  14. I am so enjoying spring this year - I think I am noticing things more since I have been blogging - I have tulips coming up and there's even a Spiderwort bloom.
    My garden is coming alive! I know soon yours will - then I'll be in summer-heat mode.
    Hope you have a marvelous day,
    Kathy

  18. The coming of spring is such a glorious time of year, and it looks like you have some beautiful flowers to enjoy. I have just bought a bundle of tulip bulbs on Sunday. I have never tried growing them here in my hot dry corner of Western Australia. I've been told to keep them in my fridge till May. I look forward to their flowering. Thank you for sharing your garden with us.
