Daffy-dils

Yes, they have bloomed and some tulips are not far behind. It was over 70 today so mum opened lots of windows tonight when she came home. It won't be this warm tomorrow however!
Mum spent lots of time working outside the past few nights, raking the grass and cutting the old plants down. Now she just has to take the stuff to the compost pile at the landfill. But other stuff is starting to get green too, daylillies and poppies.
Don't forget, the deadline to get your tickets for the CFHF Gizzy Quilt raffle is Friday. You wanna win this, you know it. But you can't win if you don't buy a ticket!

Oh our daffs have been out but we have yet to see tulips. Now my humans are planning on it but alas I doubt I will get to... sigh

Oooh Daffodils. Mom loves those! The Magnolia tree in the backyard of our neighbors yard is in full bloom. It's lovely.

That looks like our place too but no flowers yet, just yard work! Can't wait for the grass to get green again!

We're waaaaaay past daffs around here in muy HOT Texas..we've moved right into irises and day lilies and annuals! My mom says she's not doing anything except for garden prep until after Mom's day, 'cause it could freeze again!

You guys have a beautiful garden.

We don't have any flowers, just flowering bushes and trees. My Mum isn't capable of growing anything.

My Grandpa has lots of nice flowers though. His Daffy-dils are beautiful right now.

My Investor likes the garden, too. I believe it is for our viewing enjoyment.

All of the daffidols have been out for a long time here in Seattle, and the tulip festival is being delayed though, and it probally will be a little long too! The western Washington area got around an inch of snow yesterday!!
