A Little Throwback Thursday with Some Jumping Up and Down, Too
Garden Surprise

Bloomin' Friday

I've had a really busy week.  A bit of this, a little of that, and far too much of the other thing.  Good stuff, for the most part.  But not a whole lot of extra time.  Whenever I could, though, I got out in my garden.

Which is (finally) coming to life!


(Garden Buddha is so happy to be surrounded by creeping jenny . . . instead of snow!)

Everything is POPPING now!

Ferns unfurling.

And blooms?

Oh, yeah.  Blooms!

Lovely, incredible lilacs.

Allium - just beginning to pop!  (More of my Hundreds of Bulbs from last fall.)

And this unknown lily-type bulb.  I have them all over my yard -- white and pink and blue.  (I know I planted them as bulbs-obtained-cheaply Once Upon a Time -- but they have naturalized and now appear all over.)  (And I have no idea what they are.) (But I don't care.  Because wonderful.)

I've also got hops.  (Oh, brother... Do I have hops...)

Garden Priority One this weekend?  Taming those hops.  (Before they take over the world.)

I hope there are lots of blooms in your world this Friday, too.
Happy weekend!
