Welcome sun!!! Your garden is really bursting with blooms now. Seeing all your bulbs reminds me that I intended to buy some last fall but didn't get around to it. Hopefully this fall I will rectify the lack of spring blooms with some tulips. Have a great weekend!

It must be your blog that has that running water sound. I like it :) I super like your flower blooms :) Hope to see you in my Fertilizer Friday post here.

So many pretty flowers there. Here in the Seattle area we are much cooler than normal. We are going for a record of the latest in the year to hit 70 and I don't think that'll happen for awhile. Glad it's warming up there.

Paula, thanks for visiting. I live in zone 3b where I can grow rhododendrons. The variety on my blog is a PJM rhododendron and is hardy to zone 4 but I have a bit of a microclimate near my deck where it seems happy. I don't know your zone, but perhaps you could check to see if this variety is available in your area. If you love them, it's worth trying. Happy gardening! :)

Denna tid på året känns nästan magisk. All denna mångfald. Jag ser att du har underbara tulpaner och narcisser. Önskar dig en skön helg! Zinnia

Spring has sprung!! Love your blooms:), had to enlarge the pond plants, is the first one Lungwort? Do you know the name of the yellow one? We have the yellow ones growing in the ditch here.

Your garden and it's flowers are simply beautiful and I'm truly happy for you to have the Sun once again... I live in the Sun and it's been a treat to get a cloudy day.. it's been in the 90's for about a month and it's like living in a swamp.... Happy Spring to you.
Wish I could grow spring bulbs...

Hi Paula... this is Larry... very nice post! You asked about a 'button" and I'm not sure what that is... you can reach my blog with the following link however... I enjoy experimenting with photography so I do post a large number of photos in my efforts to improve my skills. Thanks for visiting my site...

Your tulips are beautiful - one of my favorite flowers that I don't grow (too hot in the winter here for them), and aren't daffodils such a cheerful plant? Love them! Thanks for coming by my blog. I'm enjoying looking at yours, and am a new follower.

As I was reading some of your posts, I was enjoying the singing of the birds, then the rain started and made me shiver!

I'm glad you are finally getting some warm weather. We will get a 90 degree day, followed by several in the 50s. Today, it looks like it will be in the upper 60s. I'll take that, with hopes of some 70s soon.

You have a nice assortment of daffodils!
