I adore Virginia Bluebells. They reseed readily and are a Virginia shade loving native plant. Blooming early in the Spring, the foliage dies back soon after. Every year I wonder if there is really something “down there” and have to be careful to not accidentally dig it up! This plant would look wonderful as a ground cover for the American Redbud Tree which is also in bloom right now in Charlottesville, Virginia.
My little shabby Garden Gate awaiting my entry, on Forsythia Hill in Charlottesville, Virginia.
The yellow Forsythia is midway bloomed out - more COLOR to come!
I collect Daffodil Bulbs and the little miniatures are starting to open a bit more now that it is rained and temps have increased on Forsythia Hill in Charlottesville, Virginia. This teeny ivory and yellow flower with a long ruffled trumpet is so sweet.
It’s a lovely day this April Fools Day which just happens to be 19th my Wedding Anniversary!
Beautiful little Purple Striped White Crocus blooming today on Forsythia Hill in Charlottesville, Virginia.
My first little Daffodil bloom of 2014! It’s always this miniature yellow that opens her eyes first.
Charming and sweet.
U have to know her to appreciate the message on the wooden box ———
Our little Sylvie has come a long way - she rarely viper strikes these days but when she was a kitten u had to WATCH OUT!
Could this be the last snow of the season in Virginia?
I’ll pretend that Spring is on its way for good and capture the moment with this last shot of my massive Leyland Cypress.
My Red Amaryllis from Bud to Bloom. A friend gave the bulb to me for Christmas.
It was nice seeing a flower bloom while it was snowing outside!
I took this photo last Fall when visiting Central Park. I had never seen the Bethesda Fountain and I gasped when I saw this lovely 26’ tall fountain.
One of the largest fountains in New York City this neoclassical statue named Angel of the Waters was designed by Emma Stebbins and was dedicated in 1873 as part of the original design of the park. She was the first woman to receive a major commission for a major work in the city. http://www.centralpark.com/guide/attractions/bethesda-terrace/bethesda-fountain.html
