Today in my garden on April 24, 2010 Get link Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google+ Email Other Apps Tiny tulips fizzing. Primroses smiling. Hellebores still glorious. Apple trees in leaf. We waited for it so long, but spring is well and truly here.

I have some creamy yellow tulips which are far too stately and elegant to describe as 'fizzers' though.I wonder if they flower again next year - I never seem to manage to get more than a year with tulips. Can you?ReplyDeleteClaire24 April 2010 at 23:24Looks like it was a glorious day, the photos are lovely.We are enjoying the beautiful Autumn colour in our little corner of the globe and last night I lit the wood heater for the first fire of the season, woohoo.Big news, spotted my first Red Robin this morning, I'm happy.ReplyDelete~Kim~24 April 2010 at 23:24Beautiful pictures!!! For me it really did seem like a long winter and I'm thrilled that spring is here too, but today I just wish it would warm up just a little bit more, my feet are cold!! :-)ReplyDeleteArtist's Garden24 April 2010 at 23:53So lovelyKReplyDeleteMichelle Palmer25 April 2010 at 01:01Thank you for sharing such sweet and sunny flowers!Beautiful~ReplyDeletePondside25 April 2010 at 06:14I'm so happy to have tulips, after years of fending off the deer. The tiny ones are very sweet - fizzing is a perfect verb!ReplyDeleteCro Magnon25 April 2010 at 07:59Gosh, aren't we all enjoying spring this year. Here in France it's not yet 9am, and we already have 20 degrees C. The blossom has been fantastic; live living amongst permanent weddings.Bisou, Cro.ReplyDeletejinksy25 April 2010 at 10:17The primroses brought their scent with them - almost as though I had a bunch in my hand! Lovely...ReplyDeleteKim25 April 2010 at 15:39Just gorgeous.ReplyDeleteMarcheline25 April 2010 at 16:04Whoa.... excellent stuff! A cup of tea in your garden would be just the thing.ReplyDeletemollygolver25 April 2010 at 21:27The pictures are lovely. thank you ElizabethReplyDeleteelizabethm25 April 2010 at 21:28Mountainear - I succeed fine with the small tulips but not with the larger ones, Praestans the species tulips are ok.Claire - strange to think of your autumn as our spring roars in!Kim - we are having warm days but cold nights here so still have the woodburner lit in the evenings.Artist's Garden - Simple flowers are sometimes the best aren't they?Michelle - funny, I thought this post was hardly worth putting up but then did it because I was so much enjoying the tulips and primroses. Glad you liked it.Pondside - glad you have your tulips. I have friends who gardened in the north of Scotland for some years and their tales of deer damage were amazing. I should think myself lucky we just have the badgers digging up the grass!CM - what a lovely phrase "like living in permanent weddings"! We don't have much blossom yet but the blackthorn is out and the pear trees won't be long.Jinksy - it is a special scent isn't it? Almost cool and certainly green and the scent of spring.Kim - thank you. Spring flowers are the best.Marcheline - wish you could indeed pop by for a cup of tea and a wander around the garden. You could take some fresh eggs home.ReplyDeleteFran25 April 2010 at 22:18S'been a lovely weekend. What a lovely garden you have, and a way with captions.ReplyDeleteLiz25 April 2010 at 23:21Beautiful photos, it's amazing how quickly everything seems to have suddenly woken up. A week or two of sun and now it looks more like June!ReplyDeleteGilly26 April 2010 at 09:02Yes, Spring is worth waiting for, isn't it?Love the hellebores - you must have got down very low for that shot!ReplyDeleteLynda26 April 2010 at 17:31Beautiful photos ;0)ReplyDeleteAnna26 April 2010 at 21:37Yes Elizabeth, you are oh so right - I think that we can finally say that that long cold winter has evaporated:) Isn't it great to feel warm again and wasn't it a pleasure to smell the air yesterday after that rain ?ReplyDeleteTattie Weasle27 April 2010 at 23:07Isn't it just glorious now it is here! Love the little yellow and white tulips.ReplyDeleteLITTLE BROWN DOG30 April 2010 at 13:08Indeed it is, and it all seems to have sprung so quickly. Heard my first cuckoo yesterday. Absolutely beautiful pictures, by the way.ReplyDeleteLa Petite Gallery1 May 2010 at 13:04Beautiful post. Such wonder in those blooms, Well, It's the first Saturday of May and the Kentucky Derby is today. They say it will rain. I am betting on Super Saver,or Ice Box,Looking Lucky is the favorite.yvonneReplyDeleteyreadthis15 May 2010 at 19:58All these looks nice and beautiful wish them to grow nice and well with more flowers and much subclasses.ReplyDeleteAdd commentLoad more...
