Spring garden

With just one week till Spring my garden is starting to take off again. Here are the daffodils, Ice Follies, Jetfire and Tete-a-tete. I let shelties in my face while weeding distract me today and managed to stick a garden fork into my shoe and two toes. I suppose much better my toes than theirs though.

Charming little flower, isn't it, Melinda ? It's the first time I've grown it.

They're all beautiful! I've been faithfully taking pics of all my flowers as they bloom but never got around to processing them! Well, most of them, anyway... It'll be a refreshing fall/winter activity, looking at the pics again.

Owie on your foot!! How much damage did you do to your toes--and can you get the boot repaired?

Now the Wallflower's perfume is overpowering the lovely scent of the Alyssum. No roses or even buds yet though.
