Spring Is Here, I think it might stay

Today was a warmer day. I made a few more pictures of our garden. I’m always thrilled after a Wisconsin winter (even a mild one) to see color and greenery again. Here are a few shots of what’s growing in our gardens.

A new crop of Cat Mint (or is it Nip?) is on the way.

Soon the cats won’t have to get their high from the old dry stuff they’ll have tender fresh new twigs to maul.

Lemon Custard Tulips

Our lemon custard tulips are always the first to bloom. This year was no different. But my favorite is pictured next: the blue hyacinth. I’ve always loved their blooms more than the tulips.

Just because it’s my favorite you get another one.

A close up makes it better

I like them so much I even enjoy the grape hyacinths but they migrate because squirrels like to dig them up. Ours are starting to spill out into our yard and our neighbor is enjoying a few. That’s okay since the squirrels brought us some red tulips from somewhere to go in our daffys on the side our house in exchange. Here’s both flowers.

Now see aren’t they pretty.

I love the center of the red tulips.

Look at the pollen no wonder my allergies are going.

That’s the garden tour for now. After I made these pictures Rappy and I went down to the lake. There I made pictures while the sun was shining. More photos from that tomorrow.
