Vinca blooms hide among the leaves early in spring. They don't bloom for very long but they do have great looking blue blooms. The yellow green leaves are the new sprouts of the plant for the season.
The close up was good but I didn't get all of the flower in the shot. I could just pretend that I planned it that way. The bud in the back shares the true color of blue of the vinca plants.
The bright sun almost causes the tulips to appear washed out looking more white than yellow. I have a lot of yellow tulips, which seems to be the ones that bloom first.
I am subbing in the shop today and I had a diversion come my way. One of the students had been to another town to pick up supplies for his project and just happen to buy six baby chicks. He really didn't know what he was going to do with them while at school but he wanted to keep them in the shop until after school
The boy bought this 20 lb. bag of feed so I improvised a lid to put food in there with them. They didn't hesitate to start eating. A student went to find a lid and put water in for them. Most of the students have never been around them and I had to strongly express that they were not small teddy bears. They are eating continually if they are not sleeping. I will have to keep moving the container to keep them in the sun.
It is Friday and I am glad. My wife's birthday is today so we will be eating out tonight. She liked all her presents and the cake is made and ready to be cut.
It is going to warm up today so we will have to deal with keeping cool rather than keeping warm now. I hope the photos of the little chicks make you smile. Thanks for stopping by today.
