I've been quite preoccupied with the addition of our flock, but thought I'd share a bit of what's going on in the back garden. I'm fully aware that much of what is currently blooming will need to be protected from the bulldozing activities of the "Muppets" once they're allowed to free range in the backyard. So until then, I'd best enjoy it!
Tulipa 'Flair' was the first to spring up this year and has already been opening during the day to show off its artsy inside. However on these cloudy days it pretty much stays tightly wrapped.
'Fringed Elegance' tulips are making their appearance, although they've yet to open. Looking back through my archives, I can't find a photo of these in full bloom. Hard to believe I would have ignored that, but not entirely impossible.
Unknown tulip that has been in a pot nearly as long as we've been in this house. I always mean to plant it in the garden somewhere but find it easier just to move the pot around where I need a bit more spring color.
Bleeding Hearts still blooming strong. I really want to add the native variety to the woodland garden. But with the new chickens and plans to add the coop in a portion of that space, I'm rethinking the area's design.
White Anemone slowly opening.
And now to introduce the "Muppets." As I had dubbed one chick Miss Piggy, my husband thought we should go with the theme.
