Garden Tour Thursday

IZA: I have some old stuff and some new stuff ta show this week.  These tulips are bloomin nicely.  They are the orangiest ones we have.  There used ta be more, but some dont live long.  That green stuff is Snow-On-The-Mountain.  It grows about my height an has green an cream leafs.  Last year, there were only 12 plants.  They sure spread!  There are 5 hostas in there that will grow much bigger than them.
This is the 2nd type of daffodil in this box.  The early ones were bright yellow.  These look kinna "droopy" this year.  Mebbe cuz its so warm!  But they have a nice smell (yeah, FRAGRANT daffodils)!
These are odd little plants.  They look sorta like hostas, but they are Brunerra.  They has tiny blue flowers right now, but they are there fer the pretty leafs.
These are some of the last of the daffodils.  They are odd too.  They grow 2-4 flowers from each stem!  
There is this 1 little patch of creeping phlox that stays alive.  The pond was originally surrounded by them, but this is the only 1 left.  They probably needed more light.
The old pansies are still bloomin!
These common hostas sure came up all of a sudden!  TBT has been ignorin them a couple years, so ya can see weedy vines growin all around.  I'll hafta remind him ta do somethin about that!
More of the same hostas (and vines).  But they are happily multiplying.  There used ta be just one plant every cat-length in a single row.  When he gets rid of the vines, mebbe he can move some ta the empty spots along the row.
Well, thats what I have ta show this week.  Ayla and Marley have set out some crunchy treats and some drinks up on the deck fer us.  We can sit in the sun until dark an watch the Birdie TV.  After dark, TBT says he will turn on the outside light and we can catch some bugs!

You have LOTS in bloom in your garden, and wow, look at the size of your hostas already. Ours are just tiny buds peeking above ground. But our own snow-on-the-mountain is going crazy--it really will spread and take over EVERYTHING. It's great for ground cover by our unit, though, as that area doesn't get sunshine.

We have a long Easter weekend here, so will wish you all a very happy Easter now! We hope the Easter Bunny brings yummy treats!

The pansies are so cheerful and we just love the daffodils they make us smile. The Brunerra is gorgeous, you know how we likes blue. We are having WET weather right now, so it sure was nice to visit your garden. Thanks for the snacks.

You have lots of pretty colours in your garden. We like the daffodils with several heads. We used to have some like that, but they don't seem to come up any more. Mum says that the mousies probably ate the bulbs so we will have to keep watch for them.

We love bugs! We just wish Mom Paula would let us go on the porch so we could catch more of them.

Mommy SO misses the hostas! And the snow-on-the-mountain. It's just too hot and dry here for them to grow, even on the north side of the house.

I have no garden and it's pretty cold here this week, so I would like to come over and catch bugs, please.
