We are having some nice warm weather after almost 2 inches of rain. The temperatures are in the 60°s F. Everything is growing, and a lot of the early bulbs and flowering bushes are blooming. The birds are back—we’ve been watching Sandhill cranes, great blue herons, lots of raptors, and even one kingfisher. Today, I want to share some of what we are enjoying on My Little Farm in Town after a cold, snowy winter. Begonia
I planted this hellebore almost FOUR YEARS ago, and it is blooming for the first time this year! They weren't kidding when they say these plants take a few years to get established!
Dwarf Forsythea...patience pays off.
This is one of two bushes I dug and transplanted. They had rooted on their own in the bark chip mulch around the mother bush. I shared one with a neighbor, and both are blooming fully for the first time this spring.
Tulips and Hen
These tulips were the wrong color for a neighbor's garden, so she gave them to my daughter to plant in her garden along with the little hen that reminds of our first chick--The Budge.
Lamb's Ear Heart
I had a lot of lamb's ear available when I planted a new flowering border in my "back 40"--several of these hearts where the result of planting in threes. They make me smile every morning when I go out to collect eggs and tend my biddies.
I love the small bulbs--they are always the first to brighten the front yard!
These little beauties are popping up in unexpected places. My favorite bulbs are those that naturalize!
This is a wild flower that started in my shade rock garden and has spread delightfully. We enjoy their flowers for a brief time in the spring, but their leaves are interesting all summer.
