Finally…..flowers!

I have been truly enjoying the "Gardens of Blogland" for the past few weeks. So many of you already have a variety of beautiful flowers to enjoy and how nice that at least via photo and cyberspace, we were able to enjoy the beauty too.

Well…we may not have the quantity but our tulip bed is finally coming alive, here on the Prairies. So today…. I am happy to bring you my own flower blog garden to enjoy! Have a great weekend and BFN šŸ™‚

  1. Hooray! I know you’re excited. I feel spring is finally here to stay. Just Tuesday, it was chilly enough to build a fire here. Something happened Thursday, we got the sunny weather again and yesterday was the first day it was actually warm enough to sit outside in short sleeves. It was 80 degrees!

    Glad to see that the prairies are finally warming up! Keep those garden pics coming, I love ’em. Have a great weekend!

  2. Heh Caroline, Joe and I were just checking in over at EFG!!!! I mean 2 minutes ago, great minds think alike! Yes, it is nice to see flowers here, its actually amazing what the truly gifted (not me!) gardeners are able to achieve in their yards on the Prairies, despite a VERY short season.

    We are heading into the backyard to get our little garden plot ready for potato-planting today. Not enough time or space for a real garden this year but the spuds always come in handy and so yummy from the garden. Are you planting a large veggie garden? Herbs, flowers….??? Look forward to more updates…Take care, šŸ™‚

  3. What beautiful tulips! I’m happy for you that your flowers are blooming now. šŸ™‚

  4. Hey G. No veggies for us. šŸ˜¦ We have no sun once the trees come in. Mostly just annual & bulb flowers, daylilies, ferns, shrubs, bushes, etc. We’re going to a nursery tomorrow to see if anything seduces us. šŸ™‚

  5. Hi Beth, Glad you took a break to stop by…remember, dusting can wait LOL…I loved your ‘green’ post a couple of days ago, also the comments from other green-lovers. G.

    Hi Caroline, I look forward to more photos of the flower garden as the summer progresses. I am surprised that veggies aren’t an option, not even a little patch of sunny soil somewhere???

    My grandmother always had a tiny garden in Winnipeg but what wonders she grew, including beefsteak tomatoes big enough that a slice covered a large slice of (homemade, natch…) bread, yummmmm…for the best sandwiches. A happy memory, remembering her puttering in her ‘neat as a pin’ garden, even in her 80’s, wearing a Hawaiian-print housedress (so cute!) and then preserving the surplus garden bounty for the long winter ahead.
    Too bad if you can’t grow them but I bet the farmer’s markets there are amazing with lots to pick from. Almost as good. BFN. šŸ™‚

  6. Those are beautiful! I love flowers. šŸ™‚

  7. I actually enlarged the top photo for a screensaver, it looks dazzling, I like the shadows and light together.
    I have always loved tulips, all colors….hope to visit Holland some day and stroll through the magnificient tulip gardens there. Have seen them on TV, really amazing and the range of colors incredible, much more than we see here. Thanks for stopping by, BFN G šŸ™‚

  8. Hey there. I heard that the best bulb garden is Keukenhof, http://www.keukenhof.nl/, that’s probably the one you saw on TV. The best time to go is April-early May so you’ll have to see them next year! Supposdly very famous. The Dutch have been cultivating bulbs for commercial use for more than 400 years I believe.

  9. Thanks for the link Caroline, you always have the ‘plant scoop’, I will check it out. How did the shopping go at the garden centers ? Look forward to reading more at Earth Friendly Gardening soon….BFN, G šŸ™‚

  10. What beautiful photographs of your tulips! I’ve never seen variegated ones like that. I’m sure you’re enjoying them!!

  11. Hi Kim, Thanks for stopping by. The tulip patch has now completely bloomed, very pretty. I do like these variegated ones too, actually I love all the colors. Caroline supplied a link to the tulip gardens in Holland, a couple of posts above….I think that would be great to see, even on TV these gardens were spectacular!
