Everything is Coming Up Yellow

I have the regular size daffodils blooming too, but I love these little ones the most.  I have planted them around the outer edges of this old whiskey barrel that holds one of my mom's rose bushes.  Mom passed away in 1987 and we dug up some of the rose bushes when we had to sell their home in 1991. My daughter has several at her house and I just have this one, which is a beautiful Fragrant Cloud (a hybrid tea rose).  My dad used to take small tubing and make name plaques for all her roses and I still have the one he made for this one.  You can barely read the name anymore so I keep it strictly for the sentimental value.

The last few days have been very delightful here in western Washington, warm (up to 60 degrees) dry and just basically pleasant.  But today, we are back to our normal spring weather, it's much cooler and there are intermittent rain showers.   I need to get my work clothes on and do something constructive in this house but I think first, I'll go back to Wal Mart and get a pair of those shoes (like I bought the other day) in black.  I wouldn't want them to sell them all out, leaving me without cute black summer shoes.....and the dusting will wait.   :)

Happy Wednesday, until next time..............Linda

Linda your planter is so cute and sentimental.  Your lucky to have kept something so precious.  It is the little things that count.  Have a great day and hope you find those shoes.  Joni

I love daffodils Linda, we call the little ones `tete a tete` and I had some of them last year. The rose is a real beauty, how lovely that you have this reminder of your beloved Mom. :o)

Love Sandra xxxx

Well...that does it.  I've got spring fever now.  Its starting to get warm here, and I just bought some fertilizer for the yard.  I'm patiently waiting for the flowers to start blooming now.

Oh how I love spring...the season of yellow.  I just love to watch those dancing yellow heads.  They always make me feel all cheerful and warm inside.

I have nothing blooming.  Not even a crocus yet. Everything is up, tulips, narciccus and daffys, but no blooms.  I used to have about 5 times as many bulbs as I used to but we have a lot of slugs/snails, grubs and moths and I know they eat up my bulbs in the ground. Glad you're enjoying some nicer weather. We were up in the mid 7os today but due  to be 2o degrees or so cooler over the weekend. Have a good one.

Hugs, Barb

HI, Linda!  I have a planter just like that with little daffodils blooming...that's it thought...I use it mostly for annuals...the rose bush idea is a good one.  What a nice reminder of both your mother and father....:)
