Gift that keeps on giving



College friends visited over the holiday weekend and brought several gifts for the family. But of course a gardener's favorite would be a big ol' pot of flowers, most of which can be transplanted into the garden for enjoyment years to come.

The little guy enjoyed playing with their adorable daughter, who so kindly agreed to sit by the parrot tulips for a photo.

Stealth nighttime photos of columbine just starting to bloom.

The red snapdragons take on an interesting color under the flash of a bulb. These are in full bloom and doing a fine job of attracting bees around the blueberry bushes and the vegetable garden.

Perfect timing for your friends to visit - and they brought such a nice present along with their cutie kid. Good plan, putting blooming flowers near your blueberries. I kind of forgot to do that, wonder if I will get any fruit??
