Lots Going On

Voodoo bulb #2 bloomed the other day. It had started to crack, so we moved it outside before the stench got too powerful!

We have lots of little sunflowers growing where the seeds fell from last year's crop.

The first of the tulips opened mid last week (I am a belated blogger...) and I was so excited to see them! Then the heat hit, and some of them are kind of wilty now. I'll admit, I'm glad the weather is back to normal today!

These are new grape hyacinths I planted along the east side of the house. I like the blue and white together!

Put this in the "what the heck is this?!" category. These little red flowers, which almost look like tulip blooms were blooming over the weekend. They are on the stems of this little shrub that I have been trying to rip out for the five years we have lived here. I have never seen it bloom before! I wonder if it was the insane heat. I don't think I'm usually out working in the beds this early, so maybe it's always bloomed, but I've never seen it. Weird!

Our beloved strawberry patch. Sigh. I weeded and composted, and now I will patiently wait for June. Sigh.

Mrs. Pampalone's Primrose are blooming, and looking great.

And, we have tons of wonderful blooms on the Bleeding Heart I planted last year! I was worried they might be in too sunny of a spot, but I guess not. :-)
