    This is the season for early bulbs to start or maybe even finish blooming. My Tulips are just starting to bloom now, buy my Daffodils are going strong.

    There is nothing better than a fresh bouquet of flowers from your garden on display in your house.

    So there is a couple of things to remember about these two most popular flowers.

    Daffodils have a thick liquid that leaks out of the bottom of the stem. When putting Tulips and Daffodils together in a vase, the liquid from the Daffodils will harm the Tulips. So if they must go together in a vase, put the Daffodils in water for about two hours first. Then put them together in a bouquet.

    Oh and one more thing, take a picture. It is a way to enjoy your garden next Winter.

  • More Snow !!!

    Wow, what a surprise this morning, about 2 inches of snow. My tulips and crocus are okay after the snow. I guess the snow really isn’t that cold, not like a -20 winter day. Both the bulbs, leaves and blossoms can stand both snow and cold. It is unbelievable how hardy they are !!!! Here are a few pictures to show the snow.

    As I was walking out to get the mail today, I had the most pleasant surprise. The crocus’ by the sidewalk are coming out and they look terrific. Here are a few pictures of them.

    This is a picture of a flower called Glory-of-the-Snow or Chionodoxa, it is in bud getting ready to bloom. It is one of my favorites, it is such a delicate flower.

    Do you know what time the sun comes up? I didn’t either until early one morning, I happened to see the sunrise. I knew there would be some ‘color’ but I didn’t have any idea there would be this much orange.

    Next time you have a chance, get up early and enjoy a sunrise. It is a great start to your day !!!!

    Here are a couple of pictures I took that morning. Please vote on which one you like best.

    I love frosty mornings!!!!!
    Winter isn’t my favorite season. It is too cold and snowy for me. But when I have a chance to take pictures of things with frost on them I get excited.
    Here are a few frosty pictures. The first one is rose leaves. I guess roses can add beauty to the world all year round. The other two pictures speak for themselves.

  • Bouquet a Week

    Posted on January 18th, 2010 Pam No comments

    This year I am going to have a very lofty goal.

    I learned to love flowers from my Mother, and I think it would be great if I could have a new bouquet of flowers each week.
    The thing that makes this hard is that the bouquet must be from flowers that I have grown myself. I will force daffodils and tulips during November, December and January, and try to extend the fall flowers into late Fall.
    I’m not sure it is possible, but I am going to give it a try. Even if I have fresh flowers for 40 weeks out of the year, that will be quite an accomplishment!!!
    Here is the first bouquet, picture taken on January 18, 2010. These are paperwhites, a type of daffodil, I planted them around November 30, 2009. I forced them to bloom early and inside.
