These small red tulips showed up two years ago. Of their own accord. The Missus Herself did not plant them. Do the wee folk like tulips?
The hyacinth are making their appearance. (Not to be confused with "our Hyacinth" in Keeping Up Appearances.)
Um, no, not that one...
The arbor vitae did sustain some damage during the Great Blizzard of '13 (back in February). 'Tis a shame really. No doubt when the weather improves we'll need to trim the damaged limbs.
I love this tree, with it's gnarled and twisted branches. The crocuses are up, the tulips here (mostly white and yellow) are not far behind.
Daffodils and crocuses on opposite sides of the fence. (The crookedness of that fence isn't quite so apparent when all of the Missus' flowers come in. But yeah, it's as crooked as a Chicago ward healer.)
Flowers peeking up amidst the shrubbery.
Alright, alright... (What d'ye think is in those pictures anyway? We've already got shrubbery! Hhmm, but we don't have a Grail...)
This crocus looks a bit forlorn, part of the poor wee thing was frost damaged back in March. The ones in front of the house start coming up in February. Little guy has been snow covered three times. But he keeps coming back. A true New Englander!
Quite a change from less than two months ago. innit?
