Very pretty! Mine are all still just clumps, thinking about blooming.... even my Virginia Bluebells, and I live in Virginia! So unfair...

I do have these blooming in profusion, though.

Here are a couple more... hoping the tulips make it through the cold weather we're supposed to get in a couple days. The hostas are growing a mile a minute, too - these pips hadn't broken ground 3 days ago.

I am so jealous! Just a couple of days ago way down deep under the leaves I found the beginnings of this year's herbs and a few little green tips of the daffodils and iris. Today it is snowing.

Daffodils and Tulips along with some perrenials and herbs were coming up and now over a foot of snow since Wednesday and it's still coming down! More snow forcasted thru Easter.

We don't have quite that much barefootgardener - but enough to haul out the jug of maple and throw an impromptu sugar on snow party. I've never known the spring bulbs and herbs to be murdered by an April storm - hoping that still holds true this year.

Here are some of the late tulips, and the first iris in my garden this spring. Oh - and the orange and pink tulip really is that bright - it's like Tang it's so orange at the tips!

Here are some more great colors... the burgundy iris is one that a lady brought to me, hoping I'd trade some of the bearded iris I have... of course I did!
