This is my absolute favorite time of the year and unlike last bad year,it seems everything will be blooming again:thumbs up
So far only my Magnolia and the Tulips,but the Rhodo and Lilacs are just about to.
It looks a little spars,but here are a couple of pics of my tulips in the front-yard..

Your tulips are so pretty, chico, are those rose bushes I see between the tulips? Roses are my favourite plants.

My Magnolia hasn't bloomed yet:sad:. It seems to be so far behind everybody elses

Real pretty Chico. My bulb collection rendered 4 tulips, 1 daffodil and 1 fritillaria that is almost bloomed. What is that left of the tulips in the first pic? Also I have a beef, you live about an hour from me and you have buds on your poppies already :frustrated: mine are only about 6ins tall. :eek:

I think chico has a "special communication" with her plants and they listen to her. I think she should share it with the world or if not the world, how about pets.ca?.

OMG Girls,I am definetly no real gardener,I stick them in the ground and they grow:laughing:
Chris,to the left of the Tulips are a bunch of Shasta Daisies(only leaves yet),they need to be split.
But they look really good in the summer between the roses

Wow, chico! Beautiful tulips!! :cloud9:

I can't believe how much ahead of us your area is. :eek: We've just gotten rid of our snow and the plants are just starting to poke through... I think I saw some daffodils out in the sunny area by the road, but everything else is still yawning and stretching--no where near blooming! :D

If it was that simple how come when I stick things in the ground they don't grow? I couldn't even grow zuccini!:yell: I got some nice yellow flowers poking up all over my grass, they seem to be flourishing:D

Very very nice Chico. I am envious too. I just don't have time to work my gardens right now. The weeds have taken over. :sad: After the long weekend and a visit to mom I should be able to take a few hours to do some gardening. My customers know if my car is here, I am here.
Wanna come help? :fingerscr
