We had glorious weather over the weekend. Well… it was glorious to me. That nine inches of snow we got from the winter storm last Friday has all melted away, and there’s new life sprouting up from the ground! I do believe spring has finally sprung!
It was so many years ago that I planted this flower bed for my mom that I can’t recall exactly what is where, but I think these are Allium…
And I think these are yellow Tulips…
I can’t wait until they bloom! The greenery you see is Lamium that has completely taken over the flower bed ~ I didn’t realize the variety I planted was a ground cover type. I’ve been yanking it out here and there since I moved in, trying to make it grow where I want it to, but it’s a persistent little plant with a mind of its own. It is lovely when the delicate little pink bells are blooming though.
Also the Lilac has buds!
One of my most favorite of all springtime blooms, so deliciously fragrant! ♥ I’ve mentioned in earlier posts that my Grandpa planted this Lilac bush for my Grandma over 70 years ago. Little did he know when he planted it all those years ago that his Granddaughter and Great Granddaughter would be living in this house someday and enjoying it too. 🙂
It will still be a while yet before I can begin planting my vegetables, but spring has definitely arrived here in Minnesota and it’s so wonderful.
Peace & Love…
