  • A WEEK IN THE GARDEN

    Posted on April 30th, 2011 Pam No comments

    Here is a garden update, (in pictures).

    The bees are out!!!!! April 12, 2011

    More Crocus, I love these Spring flowers!!

    Another picture of crocus, these are very small and delicate.

    Update of my 'cold frame' cress and onions doing great.

    This is cress, it looks good. To bad I killed it about a week later. I left it in the cold frame without venting it. It turned yellow and died!!!!! So be careful when the sun is out, it can get very hot in an enclosed building.

    This is a cool ground cover, it is a perennial. I love it, but I don't know what it is called. Can anyone tell me?

    Also, I want to pick a bouquet every 5 days. I will post a picture of each bouquet, wish me luck. Here are the first two.

    This bouquet of Daffodils was picked April 20, 2011

    The first bouquet of Tulips. Picked April 25, 2011, I forced these to bloom, they turned out okay.

    One of my favorite pictures of a Daffodil.

    This is a flower my nephew Devin gave me 5 years ago. I forgot what it is, does anyone know?

    Chionodoxa luciliae or Luciile's Glory-of-the-snow. It is a bulb that came from Turkey. These are about three years old and are really filling out.

    I love these tulips, they are so early. I love the pattern they have made.

    These are some old tulips my Mother had, I love the yellow centers.

    This is a tulip with ice and snow on it. This is a cool type of tulip, it has pointed petals.

    These are the same red tulips with the pointed pedals, this time without snow.

    Some cool pictures of Daffodils.
