Glad you are feeling better. There is so much work to be done, now that Spring is officially here.

I read a blog by a famous photographer in Sweden. Today he posted pictures of his last April's tulips and daffodils -- hundreds of one cultivar. "Hard to believe it will again look like this in just one month," he said.
I forget from year to year just how beautiful April and May look. I

What is the yellow flower in the black pot, last photo? Is is something that goes into the ground later?

Pretty! Love the red and white tulip - and your tulip tree is gorgeous!

@Nell, those are moss roses (I believe) they were the bird bath under Charlie the water fountain. They looked so pitiful. They like dry soil and the bird bath never drained. So I dug them up..they were very tiny..last fall and put them in the greenhouse. Now this is there size. I think they are annuals but I am learning, annuals, sometimes, have more to do with weather conditions then the life cycle of the plant.

@Holley, I got those at Lowe's. They are Darwin Hyrbid Tulips...supposedly will come back but I doubt they will unless I dig them up and chill them...at least that is what I read...

Still not feeling well, so no hole digging today, but at least I'm not lying in the bed.
