My big pot of daffodils is holding up well, even with days of rain and cool weather.. or maybe it's because of that! :-)
I so enjoy the different varieties of daffodils.
I was surprised by the big huge bumblebee on this flower stem.
This one is like a golden halo on the cup.
The purple lilac will open soon! I'm kind of upset that I may miss the whole lilac bloom while at the beach. :-(
My Iris garden is coming along.. I can't wait to see them bloom.. my metal goat looks at home in their leaves.
My one and only tulip is in bloom.. lol
The white lilac is starting to open, I will try to cut some branches to take with us for the trailer. I've never tried to cut them this early and am not sure they will bloom? Have you?
I stood very still near the hummingbird feeder and snapped a photo of this cute little guy.
This is he and his mate. They stayed here all winter, little dears.
Yesterday my 2 sisters and Shirley, my best friend from 7th grade, met me for lunch at Fir Point Farms, a fruit stand in Canby that is also a bakery and cafe, where we had lunch together and celebrated my birthday. My 2 sisters told me they'd buy me some plants at our next stop at Margie's Nursery.
They are newly opened and will have a lot more color and plants coming up. But I found some fun things.
As we drove from Fir Point to Margies we passed this amazing field of Mustard, so after I left the nursery I stopped and took a photo of it on my way home.
Shirley gave me this cute little lavender glass bunny candy dish. It will join my chicken candy dish collection. :-)
One more daffodil photo.. :-)
My big purchase at the nursery was this Red Bud tree, my sister Roberta pitched in for this. They are very popular in the south USA and I didn't know they'd grow in this zone, but over the last few years I've seen them and wanted one and now I have this! :-)
The color of the flowers are a beautiful fuchsia! I think I'll plant it above the pond area near the bird feeder.
Here are my other purchases, a King Tut and Prince Tut Papyrus - these are my birthday gifts from sister Denise. I got the cute little Coleus for myself.
I've loved colorful coleus for a long time but haven't gotten one in years.. this will be fun on the deck.
The koi are more active now that winter is over. I fed them and snapped a photo.. we will get a few more when the pet store gets them in stock.
We are trying to get the trailer/caravan ready for leaving on Friday. So much to do.. I'm making lists of things to pack. See you on the other side!
