Happy April to me!

So I was taking the garbage to the curb this morning, and lamenting that it is April, because my yard is pure dirt with a few cacti to dot the landscape. April is about flowers and green and beauty, but not in my yard, or so I thought.

Well, I was wrong! Out of the corner of my eye I saw a splash of red, and what was it?! You guessed it, a tulip! (Which happen to be my favorite flowers...thank you people who lived here before us for doing at least that right.) I was so excited that I had to grab my camera to document this momentous occasion. I want to know exactly how it has survived all the beatings it has gotten, being stepped on for the past few months to name one.I also noticed that the nasty bush that lives next to the garage pad has put out the most beautiful, delicate yellow flowers. The ones closest to the ground have blossomed because the ground has been pretty warm for the past few days. Another splash of color! So I wish you all a happy spring, a great Good Friday, and a wonderful Easter to boot!

  2. I don't know what happened with the first comment - it didn't publish everything!! What I said was: Your bush looks like a forsythia - one of my favorites because it blooms in early spring and will be green for summer. It also looks like you have some irises growing by your tulip! I'm jealous! We have snow :(
