Spring has sprung here in Georgia! That does not mean we're out of the woods for the cool weather. We've been known to get snow in April. But my flowers are ready to get growing. I thought I'd share what makes me happy on a daily basis (besides the smiling faces of my kids).
A few weeks ago I took this picture showing the daffodils just emerging from the ground as the first sign of Spring.
Check them out now!
These are called King Alfred and they are large variety of daffodil.
I also have them in the front along our sidewalk under the computer room window. In empty places between the daffodils, I planted hosta which will come up and hide the spent daffodils during the summer. I need to dig up the hosta and divide them. They've been happy in their home for the last 8 years and it's time to share them.
When we first moved into our house in 2001, we purchased three little 3 feet tall camellia bushes to plant in front of the garage windows. I thought they were all light pink, but when we purchased them they hadn't bloomed yet. The one we planted in the middle turned out to be dark pink and is now over 12' tall! It blooms later than the light pink ones.
These are unbloomed Peaches and Cream daffodils. I planted them about 4 years ago a little later than normal and they've always come up later and bloomed later the my others.
I also love peonies. Mine never do as well as my Momma's, but if you look closely in the picture, you'll see the dark pink nub where all the new leaves and stems will emerge soon. My Momma's garden is absolutely breath-taking. I'll have to share some pictures of hers with you soon. She is the true "green-thumb-er" in the family when it comes to flowers.
Next on the garden tour is this little volunteer. I found it a few weeks ago and think it might be a Black-Eyed Susan. I had one planted a few years ago but it got swallowed up by a huge Cherokee Rose bush. What do you think it might be? I hope it's not a weed!
That's the end of the garden tour! Hope you have a great weekend!
