    Everything in the garden is starting to come to life.  Tulips are budding and blooming.  Daffodils are in full bloom. 

    Here are a few pictures to show what I mean, these were taken May 4th and 5th of 2011.

    Here are a 'bunch' of tulips in the front yard. Small, but thick.

    These are Daffodils, they are the 'double' kind.

    This is just one bunch of Daffodils, the buds have doubled in numbers each year.

    This is my Crown Imperial, showing yellow buds, ready to bloom.

    More pictures from the flower bed in the front yard.

    This is my curved flower bed in the East garden. Daffodils blooming, tulips in bud. Taken May 4, 2011.

    This is the same garden spot, May 5, 2010.

    Same place, lots of tulips blooming last year on the same date.

    These are the tulips I sold at the Farmer's Market last year, on May 1st.

    Okay, back to this year, more tulips.

    Daffodils I forced to bloom on the back porch.

    There are 13 main types of Daffodils, but over 15,000 varieties. Here are nine varieties I have.

    Also, here is my May 5th bouquet.

    There are over 20 Daffodils in this bouquet!!!

    • Wow! I’m so jealous. I’m going to be growing several types of flowers this year… I’m excited to be able to have indoor bouquets. I LOVE fresh cut flowers!

      I had no idea that there were so many kinds of daffodils. That is really neat. I love those double ones.

    • I know!!!!! This is the first year they have looked this good. I love them, they seem to last longer than tulips.
