It's About Time

Signs of Spring are peeking out ev.er.y.where!

Finally, things are starting to take off here in my neck of the woods.
Take a look at some of the pretty that's happening in my very own yard.
I mentioned earlier that I planted a few bulbs last fall that I got from Walmart half off.

I was a little worried about the quality I would get with such cheap bulbs, but I worry no more!

Daffodils, I have daffodils!  Squeeee!  
(My version of an excited squeel...you get the idea I'm sure.)

I planted several bulbs on my ugly, steep back hill which I won't show you a full picture of.  Let's just say it is a garden that is very natural, if you can count sage brush and wild grass as a garden.  At least now it has some color!

Look at the grape hyacinth coming along so beautifully too!

Another shot of my cute little daffodils.

These little tulips are already showing potential.  I'm so excited to see them bloom, especially since I can't remember what color they are.

I know most of you are thinking: "Heather, what's the big deal, everyone has tulips."  Well, I do believe these are the first I've ever planted and it's a little step toward beautifying my yard which was in really bad shape when we bought the home.  

Just one little step out of a ton of projects but JEESH!,  it's something, and it makes me excited for the rest of the projects on my list.

  1. Ooooh your daffodils are just lovely! Our tulips and hyacinths are just starting to poke up - I can't wait for them to bloom :)

  2. Spring flowers are the best! I think I need to plant some crocuses next fall - my neighbor has some that are blooming right now (even though we still have some snow on the ground) and I'm totally jealous!

  3. They look so nice! No flowers here yet:( I'm not sure Michigan got the memo that spring is here....
