Something New Everyday

The red tulips that grow up against the foundation finally bloomed today. Now, that is not earth shattering but they are the first tulips to bloom here in the Sandbox. The tulip bulbs were a gift from my Mother in Law when we moved here. She has been gone since 1992. I rembember her when I see them bloom.

The Colchicum or Autumn Crocus had popped up under the Spruce tree. These crocus type flowers are in the family of Iris. The put up green leaves in the spring and then die back to come again in the fall as lovely mauve flowers.

The last little surprise for today was the emergence of the Double Bloodroot that I received from a friend who has a lovely garden and takes great pride in her plants. I would have been very ashamed of myself if this did not come up as my garden is less lush than hers. I hope it has a nice bloom. I will take a picture when it does. All for today.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
