It was close to being a summer day yesterday, high 70's and showers. I was an April showers bring May flowers kind of day. The clematis has big buds and should be ready to pop in another week or two making them summer flowers. So these may be the last of the spring flowers…. grape hyacinth, tulips, phlox and panies.
I have one lone but perfect tulip. Over the years I've planted others but they seem irresistible to squirrels or chipmunks who keep digging them up and eating them or moving the bulbs to some secret location.
Did you know that grape hyacinth are part of the lily family and are often used in perfume?
After the rain I picked a few of the blooms for a small bouquet.
As spring is close to wrapping up I'm looking forward to the first round of the summer flowers.
