Your wish is my command, Ms. Lucy. It's time to leave the old cold winter thread anyway; we need blue skies and golden sunshine, and we need fewer worries for awhile. Let's hope our Spring and Summer will be good to us and to those we love.

We came from here: http://cubits.org/bluegardens/thread/view/81323/

Vic, I was sorry to hear about your friend. I do hope she gets a second opinion. OC can be misread and there can be false positives. Just a thought...
She is prayed for and we hope that it will turn out for the best for her and the family/friends.

Larry, I was sad to hear about Bonnie. It is good to know that when this life is over, God has planned an even better place for us and if we are secure in His love, we have nothing to fear. We are praying for Bonnie, Stan, Aunt Rose and your family.

Beautiful Spring flowers. Thanks to all. But they are in the other thread so let's get more here. Thumbs up

It was much warmer today and the leaves on the trees are growing fast. It will soon be time to mow. DH rolled the yard today. 77* here and windy.
DH told me it was hard to spread mulch with so much wind. Pollen count was high. I had to stay inside, AGAIN!

Blessings to all....

If your dresser drawer is like mine, Susan, you'll never ever find that round tuit. Mine's been lost forever. Post those irises right now! It's like Oma says, all our blooms are on the old thread.

I have another bud on Zipper, can't wait till it blooms. Thought I had a bud on Florentina and Pompano Peach but I think I must have been seeing things. Not yet, they tell me. But soon!

I'm anxious to see more of Jean's blooms too, I love seeing what grows well and often wild in other places. And Vic's mountains . . . her blooms always make me so homesick.

Y'all are going to have to take your cameras with you. Let's fill this thread up with blooms! We've all been through a rough winter, we need some happy blooms!

Thank you for the new thread Sharon and love your photo but I will miss seeing Sunshine each time Lovey dubby

Looking forward to all the spring photo's too.

Oma, she is being treated at the Women's Cancer Center at Kettering - same place I was when I had my cancer. Thank you for your prayers.

It is going to rain all day and not stop until the wee hours of tomorrow morning. We'll probably lose electric from fallen trees on electric lines.

Larry - I hope your dress pants are ok.

irises
Temperature in the 40s & more daffodils coming out next to the wall. They are a mixed group, really the drops when the company is filling orders & sold by the bushel & half/bushel The crocus finished too soon for me. We both go to our annual vision check-up to morrow so there is a morning shot for the garden.

Sharon, the weather is finally spring like, hoping to get lots of gardening in this week. No flowers yet, I don't have any spring bulbs.

Haven't seen Munch since the first of April.

Kentucky rain --- and we got a bunch of it last night. This will tell the tale about my mimosa and crepe myrtle Everything else is beautiful, lush and green. After this rain, I'll decorate the magnolia.

It's going to be interesting to see what your pants do, Larry. Today's 'dry clean only ' clothes don't always really mean that, I've found.

Mary Ann as always, the beauty of your driveway iris bed always inspires me. Take another long shot photo when they are in full bloom. So beautiful, those little ones. I guess mine are all tall beardeds but I think Florentina is a big smaller, but not nearly as small as Zipper. I've never been really interested in iris until Polly and you entered my life -- and now Lucy --though I've always had many tucked into all my beds for early blooms.

They were the first flower I ever knew because they were a part of my mother's childhood garden and she only had the old 'blue flags'. She let me help her tend those plants in her garden and I thought my careful tending made those blue flowers bloom just for me. I was so proud because my blue flowers bloomed long before her roses did. I thought it was my careful tending that made it happen ,because I wasn't allowed to touch her thorny roses.

Funny how the image of a flower can trigger old memories. Somewhere around here there is an article I wrote for Polly's cubit about that. It might have been moved to ATP.

Vic you've been sounding rushed to death, can you take it easy today?

Toni I hope you and hubby are enjoying a great weekend. Bet he loves his office.

I hadn't thought about how difficult spring bulbs would be for you Margaret. I know you are excited to get some annuals. Your gardens are always so pretty.

A day of rest for you, Arlene, you've earned it.

And Jean ,since you are ahead of us in the bloom department, keep those pictures coming. I love seeing your world.

Oh Mary Ann, pippi Longstocking is so pretty! All of them are, but especially Pipi,

Heavy rain and thunderstorms here. A little bit scarey when in the greenhouse, but I got all my seedlings weeded and there are more than I expected that survived. But it's too wet to plant anything today so i'll start some more seeds and sort plant tags.

Sharon, I have Moonvine flower seeds if you want me to send you some. White and purple I think. I'll have to look. I should get some started here.

I planted some Jewelweed seeds today. I so want them to germinate. A friend at market who makes soap would make some soap with it. I know he's sell out of it quickly.

Sharon, another vendor and I were talking about comfrey and other medicinal herbs and she suggested we get a group started. She is also part of my garden club so I think it could be something we could do because there are others interested. I really want to learn and I want to learn how to make salves especially.

The Banana bush, Michelia figo, is also called the Port Wine Magnolia. It is a member of the Magnolia family, and its' blooms smell like sweet bananas.

Wow, Jean, another in the magnolia family! So pretty.
