Spring Stuff

I get so many photos taken that I forget to put some of them up on the blog. I was glad to see the apple trees blooming.  The tree next to the garden shed doesn't seem to have as many of them this year.  It is probably better as they get too many apples on the branch and the tree self clears away some of them, dropping them on the ground early summer.

The sedum in the tile looks good.  I wonder if I will ever see blooms on them. I planted some of this plant on the ground below and it is looking good too.

I have shared the single shot of one of these earlier.  They are an interesting tulip with the red flares of color on the edges of each petal.

I was surprised to see these popping up so quickly.  They are out by the road and I guess I wasn't monitoring them, just like with the rhubarb's growth.  It looks like I will get some good blooms from them this year.

It is just a different kind of tulip. I don't remember when I buy these things but I am sure it must have been a sale in early fall. I need to go back and get another photo of them with all of them in full color.

This is another variety of the pointed petal tulips only they are yellow.

I am manning the secretary station at the middle school today.  I  find it interesting that the pause from the caller is  a normal response when a man answers the phone.  I have done the job often enough that some of the  frequent callers now say hello and move on to state there purpose for the call.

I am glad that the rain has stopped.  I think we have had a total of 3 inches or more of rain.  I have a rain gauge to check if I could ever stay home. The wind was so strong last night that I took the little dog out to another side of the house where the wind was blocked by the house.  Button can get blown over in the kind of wind we have had lately. The cold is back again today and I do wish for it to warm up again.   Thank you for checking in today.

Some warmish days here but still mighty chilly overnight, but thank goodness the snow and ice is gone now. The outdoor blooms I have seen are having a tough time with these temperature shifts - warm during the day and very chilly at night. Lots of tulips have become weather casualties.
