Spring is here...

This morning I took a break and took some pics of our flowers coming up in the yard. We spent a lot of time last fall planting a lot of bulbs. I find the best bulbs I have planted come from a website Dutch Gardens. Around our trees we did the crocuses and then we also planted Tulips which are just starting to come up.

The crocuses are looking so bright and springy! I look forward to watching the rest of our flowers pop up as the warm weather continues here. Of course we have some leaves this week that look like they have been nibbled on. So, time to get the Deer Off out and spray the gardens again. This stuff stinks, but it will keep the deer and rabbits away. Sometimes it even keeps kids away because it smells so bad. HA!

Of course my favorite flower of the spring is a toss up between the crocuses and daffodils. There is just something about those 2 flowers that always makes me smile. Some day I hope to check off my life list that I have worked or owned a flower shop. We will see. You will have to wait and see what my favorite flower of the summer is....
