The Beauty of Bulbs


Now that the weather is warming up and the soil is too the bulbs have been coming up fast and furious in the garden.  I thought I would show you a few of them today.

Exotic Emperor with logo













This is a macro shot of the Emperor Tulip that I planted last fall.   I loved the variegation of the outside petals.

bi colour daff with logo

This is a bicolour daffodil.   The peachy and soft white petals are so pretty to me.

lemon dwarf iris

The dwarf iris has a lemon scent.   I found a clump of these by the side of the road many years ago and brought them home.   They are easy to grow and I have divided the patch many times as well as given clumps away. 


This red tulip is so iridescent that it is hard to photograph.   The colour is spectacular though.


One of my all time favourite spring bloomers is the pulsatilla.   I have them in shades of deep pink like this one, a white variety and a purple variety.   The flowers are blissful but the seedheads are a photographers delight.  

Thanks for visiting.   I enjoyed showing you some of my spring blooms.   Have a great weekend.   Valerie

I will attempt to join Tootsie for Fertilizer Friday and Laura for Macro Friday if blogger is behaving itself today.

Your photos are great! What color you have in your garden - isn't spring awesome!!!
Pretty flowers Val. Blogger has been wild the last couple of days and the only thing I lost were the comments on my last post.

Beautiful bulbs! Aren't we grateful when the fist blooms arrive? I planted bulbs last fall and have been thrilled to see them bloom. For sure I'll plant more. Nancy H

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

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…
