My little yellow Trillium luteum that I picked up a few years ago at the annual Native Plant Society Sale in Charlottesville Virginia is blooming now.
I just went to the sale and picked up a few things. It’s a great annual event.
Up close and personal with native Coral Honeysuckle Vine (Lonicera sempervirens). Unlike the White Japanese Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) that most of us are familiar with, this native variety is not invasive and is quite lovely.
It is crawling on my chain link fence and is doing a smashing job hiding the Air Conditioning Unit that is about 15’ behind it next to the house.
These photos were taken on Forsythia Hill in Charlottesville, Virginia.
One of the top climbing roses to own, Lady Banks Rose. It never disappoints in the Spring. Zillions of teeny buds and no thorns make it a nice climber to have.
I’m training it over our back door to provide summer shade as well as a pop of color.
Barbara http://brian-my-left-testicle.tumblr.com/ - this flower is for u on your recent good news.
My favorite Tulips on Forsythia Hill.
Knock your Socks Off… Punch your Lights — I have no idea what name this tulip is but it can easily do both with that bright red orange and yellow!
Simple plants for a spot of pretty.
My nothin’ fancy standard yellow Tulip with a Miniature Rose cane trailing in front of it and little wild Violets meandering behind it.
My stately yellow tabby.
I’ve always loved yellow tabby cats. Cesar is such a wonderful boy. For whatever reason, yellow tabbies just seem to be sweeter.
This is my second yellow tabby, my Buttercream died a few years back and I still miss him. He was so chatty and would talk to me unlike my current three cats.
Cesar does have the sweetest little mew that matches his demeanor.
Outrageously beautiful Czech Floral Plates - NEW - for sale in my Etsy Vintage Shop, http://ForsythiaHill.etsy.com.
These plates come from the estate of my dearest friends mom’s house. I think they are so special.
Sold individually, I could see one or two given to Mom on Mothers Day. A pretty wall hanging.
Snowed in - but at least I have my vase of Daffodils and a fresh baked Butterscotch Pie (my Grandmothers recipe).
I’m feelin’ fine.
I attended a few sessions hosted by well known authors during the recent Virginia Festival of the Book. It was a good excuse to also shoot some Spring blooming flowers around town.
Check out my written blog post about the authors I heard and where to find SPRING around downtown Charlottesville.
The Forsythia is starting to bloom on Forsythia Hill in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Whisk winter away…
and trade for Spring Flowers today.
At least one more week of cold temperatures in Charlottesville, Virginia. Tomorrow it will be 20 degrees below normal for this time of year!
I’m glad the little Purple Crocus is in bloom to remind me Spring IS around the corner.
These Daffodils were planted by my Grandmother before 1960. They are always the first to open each year. Plain old Daffodils, love ‘em.
This was their development over 16 days from 3/1 - 3/17. I did cut a few for inside enjoyment during this time.
Sweet spot reserved for scattering ashes at the Lynchburg Virginia City Cemetery.
I love tombstones and flowers, in this case gorgeous ruffled pink Peony with a frilly yellow center.
The first signs of Spring…
Tiny yellow Crocus marching merrily in the mulch.
Nine days later than last year - still EARLY.
