🎶 Mo-nar-da, whoa-o! Mo-nar-da, whoa-o-o-o! 🎶 Bradbury’s monarda in @jackieLbrewer’s pollinator hotspot.
Our butterfly weed is in bloom.
When you see this sort of little flower, you know that the tree is wind pollinated. (The title of the image is: Why I’m sneezing.) 📷
After first crocus a couple of days ago, now we’ve got second, third, fourth, and almost a fifth crocus. 📷
March 1st and our first crocus is in bloom! 📷
These guys came up back in mid-January, and I guess are just going to hide here until spring arrives. 📷 #mbfeb
I bestirred myself to spend three hours yesterday digging up the flower bed in front of our house, separating lilies and daffodils, and mixing in compost. Jackie replanted the flowers that we’d thinned along with some Siberian squills and some irises. Now I can spend the winter dreaming of spring flowers.
As a nice place to sit and relax, I was trying to highlight the blue bench, but I fear the rock and the flowers rather stole the show. For the prompt “relaxation” in @macgenieʼs convalescent photoblog challenge.
I assume that @jackieLbrewer has already noticed that the #lilycount is 13. (Ooh! We also had 13 lilies exactly one year ago!)
