Spring has sprung here on our farm in the Oregon countryside! More sun, more warmth, and every day a new flower is in bloom! This Rhododendron is usually the first to bloom, this year it was second. It's a bell shaped one with a pastel pink bloom and dark pink buds. I don't know the names of any of these as they have been on the property long before we were... and we've been here 30 years!
These ones are kind of droopy.. but I like them.This rich deep red one usually doesn't bloom this early.. but here it is!
Love this red!
Next to the red rhodie is this elderberry bush in full bloom!
Wild bleeding hearts edging our front lawn.
Not the best year for our Star Magnolia - it bloomed early and then suffered through a lot of rain and hail. Only the last buds are unblemished.
The ever faithful red Azalea gives us another eye-popping display unfailingly.
And everyday I check my lilacs to see if they are ready to cut.. nope.. not yet.. soon.. hurry!
I have laid the 3rd of my collection of 3 hand crocheted lace tablecloths. The table is awaiting the lilac bouquets.
Tiny thread, lovely lace.. beautiful.
My daughter-in-law reminded me that I had not finished the Teddy Bears for the 2 littlest grandchildren... so they will be my next 2 projects. And can you believe I ran out of yarn for the legs? And can you believe after 2 yarn superstores, that they don't make this color anymore? I have a hopefully clever way to finish this.. stay tuned.
We got two pots of tulips at the farm.. they both look interesting.. I'll show you when they bloom.
My cactus gift from Shirley is sending out little shoots.. flowers? Plantlets? We'll see!
And my house violet is blooming up a storm.. I thought I'd share.
I'm jetting off in moments for a lunch with Gracie. I hope you are having a great day!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
