My Daffodils In The Rain

The daffodils had another good day

In the habitat of a peasant gardener.

This is the best showing my daffodils have ever done.

Just imagine what it's like next door.

A Sunny Afternoon Before The Winter Storm

I am home in another flash flood warning rain.

Looking out at a perfect spring garden from the front porch sky perch before things get ugly.

I walked the wild cultivated gardens yesterday evening to record proof of the perfection.

Magnolias were in bloom and swelling bloom preparation.

The daffodils were out. The daffodils and minor bulbs are having a once in a decade stellar peak bloom. More on that later. Yes, there will be pictures.

The warm has been so generous, the Trout Lily and first to bloom daffodils were in process of completing their spring task.

What will tomorrow bring?

Life is like a mountain top covered in thousands of daffodils. You never know what you are going to get.

It's what takes you outside to wander.

Where trilliums roam.

In yesterday's sunshine.

Wandering A Spring Garden

The pictures are piling up. There have been some most lovely late afternoons when I get home. The daffodils are out. The grasses did not get cut down last Sunday because it rained all day. The roadside trash didn't get picked up either. Maybe this weekend after everything gets drenched and frozen.

Yes you have to get out there and enjoy it while you can. Go.

On The Mountain Top With Bulbs

Bulbarella Stinze is having a stellar year. Her daffodils in the wild cultivated gardens are having the best showing in years. The spring bulbs have entered a well coordinated peak bloom. How long will it last? How will it end? At the moment there is bulb perfection. Nothing has been zapped - so far.

Come walk to the mountain top - with bulbs. Click on a picture for the slide show.

Daffodils Before The Storm

The last two weeks of warm has launched a rush into spring. The daffodils are headed to a peak bloom a week earlier than the average April 1st date I have come to expect.

Spring and warm and daffodils are great. I just worry we are being set up once again for the oh so common killer late spring freeze.

This is a warm rain kind storm which is good, but the fine print showed wind and hail as menu options. Fingers crossed.

One mesh wire cover has saved the Oconee Bell flowers from the deer this year. It will be removed when more of their food supply has started to grow. Oconee Bell is an evergreen which makes it a winter dining target.

This morning as the storm arrives the wild cultivated gardens are alive with hundreds upon hundreds of perky daffodils.

Please, no hail. That would just be rude.

Gardening is a perilous activity. More so in the extremes of mountain top elevations.

Today the daffodils and Bulbarella's handiwork are looking mighty fine.
