I know you have seen first crocus pics for the past two months. I really believe I am the last person in Blogville to get a crocus bloom (just for the record the first tiny crocus bloomed last Thursday) It may be boring to you, but it's my FIRST BLOOMS OF THE YEAR, signalling that spring has finally arrived. Therefore, please pretend I am a new grandmother and I have just opened my wallet and two dozen baby pics cascade to the floor...just grit your teeth, smile and tell me how pretty my baby is.
Come on now, you have to admit that this is a darn good looking clump and they are already closing up for the night. Yes, I am quite proud of this clump of crocus. It's the best little spring clump I have had in my 23 years of gardening.
I even spent about an hour outside cleaning up some of the front flower beds. I cut down 2 wheelbarrow loads and decided that was enough for my first outing. Hopefully, it will be warm today and I can do more.
Because you were kind enough to read this far, I have included some container eye candy from my file called "Container Ideas". I think most of these pictures were snagged from HGTV's site.
And OMG, wouldn't you love to own that home with those spectacular window baskets and that stunning side porch?
Pic #4 is a nice combo for a wall planter. I own a couple of those planters and thought it might be an interesting combo to try.
Happy Hump Day!
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
