Every thing's coming up tulips! Open season for Spring blooms here in North Carolina. Above, how they looked just opening early last week. Note they are in pots - I no longer plant rather expensive tulip bulbs in the ground where they feed our visiting wildlife!
Taken yesterday, following a very warm weekend, the tulips have really grown.
Healthy looking lilies are peeking through the mulched flower beds................
...............parsley, ready for clipping for the kitchen and adding to dishes. Pretty purple Thrift blooming, bluebell leaves will soon be surrounding deep blue bell flowers, one of my favorites in the Spring garden.
Pansies thriving.......had no idea I'd planted them on top of a peony last Fall!
At the Vintage Village where SuzAnna's Antiques is located, my other favorite place to shop for treasures is Two Old Birds. Delightful sisters, Susan and Debbie, are always adding wonderful items to their mix of antiques, collectibles, and vintage - they also do Home Staging. When I see their OPEN sign out front I know my day will include a fun visit to their cute shop. They'll soon be starting their garden in front of the shop - potting benches, chicken coops, and an array of quirky containers will soon be massed with colorful plants - Susan, also a florist, and Debbie, always wow us with their gardening skills.
Update: Not a thing crossed off my wish list at Saturday's community Yard Sale...........however, if you needed a baby stroller or a set of bunk beds, it would have been the place to go! My hunting for treasure continues.
