Spring Flowers

 I've been busy in the garden cleaning out flower beds, pruning and planting new annuals and perennials.


Our frost date has just passed so it's supposed to be "safe" to plant.  My goal is to get everything planted by the end of April however we are supposed to get down to freezing again Wednesday morning so I have stopped planting but still have three flats of assorted annuals and perennials to put in the ground. 

I will be dragging out sheets and covering new plants and since it's only going to briefly get down in the low 30's everything should be fine.  

 Here in Oklahoma we frequently have late freezes in the spring and then before we know it the weather gets very warm.

Here are a few photos of my garden this past week.   Tulips are still blooming!

Tulip Love

Last year I decided I needed to plant more tulips. Every Spring when I see tulips around town I regret not planting more. 

I ordered from Colorblends last year and this week the Sherbet blend is in it's full glory! What a beautiful display it has made and brightened my spirits after all the ice and sub zero weather that damaged many of our trees and shrubs throughout Oklahoma!

The colors are so bright and cheerful and even my neighbors have been admiring them.        

Amazing how much joy they have given me already.     

The Angelique tulips are just starting to bloom and remind me of a peony. 


I will definitely be ordering again!
