Spring Flowers From Cracow

My sister and I share the love of gardening, so we often exchange pictures of our success, or cry over our failures.   

I have to deal with Japanese Beetles, and her worse garden enemy is a pesky Vole. 

Anyway, today we will be enjoying the beauty of her spring flowers. 

It looks like Spring in Cracow is kinder to her flowers, than ours is to mine…:-)

Suburban Spring Flowers

Spring arrived almost a month ago, but you would not know that by looking at my flower garden.  With the cold spells, and even snow during the end of March and beginning of April, these delicate plants are having a hard time to come to a full bloom.

The two unseasonably warm days of over 70 degrees F we recently enjoyed, really had a positive effect on the plants, and helped them open up a little more.

Today I will share a few of my photos I captured of the current blooms.

Signs Of Spring – Or Mass Confusion

A couple of weeks ago, on Saturday, we had a gorgeous day. It was sunny, pleasantly warm, with the temperature in the low 50ties, but what was so peculiar about it, is that it’s still the middle of winter. Mother Nature reminded us of this reality during this past weekend.

As you know, I love nature and gardening, so I could not resist to go outside and check out how my garden is doing this time of the year.

I was pleasantly surprised, and quite confused, when I noticed some of my spring plants already popping out of the ground. It definitely is way too early for them to be peeking out, but then again, it’s the call of Mother Nature.
