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.
