Spring, that is.
Then my Snowdrift crabapple will look like this.
The Centurion Crabapple and the President
Lincoln lilac, like this.
The house will be filled with lilacs, lilacs...
and more lilacs.
In the garden, buds will be bursting.
The Lily of the Valley will fill
the garden with it's scent.
The Bleeding Heart will be laden with blooms.
Poppies of every color.
In every hue that I can squeeze in.
I'm obsessed with poppies.
Speaking of obsessions.
The peonies will then take center stage
in the garden.
I admit that I can't have too many.
They are my favorite Spring blooms.
I use them in so many ways. They mix well
with everything else in the beds.
They are definitely my favorite cut flower.
It's hard to believe that it will be Spring soon
in this part of Idaho. We still have a significant
amount of snow on the ground, but it is
I can hardly wait to watch things emerge from the
once frozen ground and put on their green
foliage and then burst into bloom.
Ah, sweet Spring!
