Signs of Spring 2013

I freely admit I am not much of a gardener.

Fortunately for me, some plants reliably come back every year.

Vinca minor groundcover.

Some type of tazetta daffodils (several blossoms per stem).

I hope we'll get a few peaches this year.


I haven't found any volunteer tomatoes but I have volunteer something growing in this little pot.


Homer's dandelion has reached proportions almost as vast as Homer himself, growing as it does next to his outdoor lavatory.  (Homer uses the area to the right of the tiny fence.)

Homer has a designated potty?! That's adorable!

You take beautiful pictures. My bulb flowers are just poking about 2 inches of green out of the dirt. I might have to return here daily to see your lovelies.

But are you saying that Homer has magical gifts, to grow such an impressive dandelion?

Oh, that's such a pretty thing to see your flowers this morning!

Me? I've currently got snow ;)

Peaches are the one true food thing I miss about living in Pennsylvania. We always had such tasty peaches!!

The mystery volunteer looks like a carrot top, to me. Love that you are all bloomy there!

We have daffodils up, but that's about it. Next month will be a big one for flowers.
