Stuck at Home

I have enjoyed, as I do even when not sequestered at home, my spring yard. So many flowers are in bloom right now. The days are a bit of a roller coaster with temperature swings, but today is in the 50sF and we had a lovely soaking rain last night. Below are some of my beauties. Some are digitally painted and others just sharpened a bit. First are those that were planted months ago so that I could enjoy them this spring!





This one below is an old faithful shrub (Loropetalum) and seems to be even more beautiful this year!


Now for the wildflowers (weeds and invasives) that are what we mow and call our lawn...mowing after all the bees and pollinators are finished.




Hope all is big and small blossoms out your way!

  1. It's a treat to see flowers. Our season is just getting there, daffodils coming out after a warm day yesterday. Crocuses eaten, probably rabbits!

    1. My crocus was under a screen until they started poking through. The squirrels seem tolike the bulbs.

  11. yes, my 'lawn' is abloom with evening primrose and fleabane and dandelions which followed the 10 petal anemone, henbit, and woodland violets among other flowering 'weeds'. these plants are an important early food source for bees.
