The Yellow Season

Every year I purchase a few pots of miniature daffodils for the Easter table. When they are done blooming, I plant them in the herb garden around the birdbath. Now, you can see that they have added up to quite a number. And the forsythia is in full bloom also. I love the Yellow Season -- it means the winter is over!



Last fall I planted bluebell bulbs around a bur oak in hopes that over several years they would seed themselves into a "carpet" of bluebells. Can you see that a few of them are now up and starting to bloom? Maybe someday they will be as noticeable as the miniature daffodils.

I also keep my Easter daffodils and plant them. The only problem is that we have snow so long that I have to try to keep them alive until late May (or longer). So far so good.... the last couple of years they have survived.
You have a pretty yard!

Oh, this is so lovely! Forsythia is one of my faves--looks like bees on the branch, I think. Have a blessed Easter!

I love the yellow days of Spring also.
