Pretty Spring Bulbs

“The day the Lord created hope was probably the same day he created Spring”
~ Bern Williams ~

The perennials in the garden are waking up slowly, but it’s the spring bulbs that have been center stage so far. So far, the daffodils have been the most eager to get going. But I’m expecting the tulips to rise in this same flower bed (in back of our home) within the next month. Hopefully they’ll awaken while the daffodils are still around because it would create a nice contrast (the tulips are a purplish colour), but I’m not holding my breath. Still. Better some flowers than none.

The spring bulbs in the front of the house are just getting started, so I’ll be posting about them in the future. In that flower bed, there are also some crocuses and hyacinth bulbs, to I’m really looking forward to that.


  1. Gorgeous pics. Flowers are truly amazing when you take the time to really look at them.

  2. They sure are amazing. Nature offers us so much beauty; if only we'd stop more often to take a look.
