Garden Tour Thursday On Friday


 Since I dint get ta do the Garden Tour yesserday (tax time fer TBT), Im doing it TODAY instead.  The place is too pretty ta skip...

So please come along an join me.  The weather is GORJUS!

Half of the tulips are blooming like mad.  The snow last week didnt harm them.   These yellow&Red ones are bootiful.
The purple ones are really nice too!
 Some are just getting ready ta bloom...
The early daffodils are looking good.
The late ones are just coming up.
These beauties are called "Flair", and they deserve the name.
These are Purple Prince.  And it doesn't get much purplier than those!
These are older ones  that the voles have never found (cuz they are near the house where the moles dont seem ta like ta tunnel).  They are older than *I* am.  And ya may notice that there is NIP growing around them.  Mebbe THAT helps too.  Help yerselfs ta some of the NIP, BTW, we have plenty.
 Here is a longer view of the new tulip bed.  Its good ta get the Big Picture sometimes.
 There will be Summer flowers planted between the tulips soon.  That will be good fer future tours!

Now lets get up on the deck fer snacks.  We have a surprise this week.  EVIL SKWERL bits!  No, WE didnt catch it (TBT did an we arent asking questions).  And to accompany it, we also have Meowgaritas, Niptinis, and plain cream.  (Creamed skwerl, LOL).

But fer those more traditional, Marley has brought out some fancy chick-hen bits TBT was saving.  "Something fer evrykitty", he says.

Thank you all fer coming along on my Garden Tour!


  1. We love daffoldils they are our favourite flowers EVER, and the tulips look cool!

  2. It's wonderful to see your garden looking so good after reading on TBT's blog about all the work he did to protect the bulbs from voles. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Those are such purrty tulips! All we have here so far are bluebells, daffodils and some crocus...but they didn't do too well...due to evil skwerl workings in our yard, or maybe the underground varmints.

  4. The tulips look lovely. My mum says she likes the Flair ones best. The nip looks the best to me though. Creamed skwerl sounds good. My dad calls them tree rats. They used to go in the oak tree outside the window and taunt me. Dad had to saw the tree down though because it had gone rotten and was dangerous and could have fallen on our roof. We got enough logs to last several winters though.

  5. Great tour. I especially like those purple tulips, very pretty.

  6. That purple prince is really pawsome.

  7. Iza obrigada por compartilhar essas lindas flores, é difícil escolher

  8. Your garden is going to be beautiful this spring and summer.

  9. Those flowers sure are purretty. Me luvs fresh nip. Mommy says it's great but will take over a garden in a minute ifin ya' don't watch it.

    Luv ya'


  10. Oh yea, we love the purple bloomers!

  11. Lovely tour and that garden is really going to be gorgeous when everything grows up. We are not that far along up here in the north. But our days are warming up nicely with lots of sunshine, so there is hope now.


We're always glad to hear from our friends...
