Spring beauty

These are what greeted me this morning when I opened the curtains.

We only have a few of these tulips and will have to hunt for some more bulbs this fall.  They are simply stunning and look so bright in the sunshine.

The flowering almond is absolutely covered in blossoms - last year we had hardly any.  Now we are just hoping we won't get any frost or (horrors) S- - - like they're getting in Calgary!


  1. I have not had a flowering almond in years, and that is a superb specimen! And the double tulips...WOW!!! Nothing subtle or shy about those beauties!
    Those are the types of Spring flowers I miss.....


  2. That's a tulip??? Wow - it's absolutely stunning! Have never seen anything like it before!


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
