Spring ~ A Promise of New Beginnings in the Garden

 A group of blogging friends is hosting a garden theme party today
and invited me to link something garden related.
With much of my time out working in my spring garden,
it leaves little computer time, so this is posting late in the day.

 We are enjoying a beautiful spring this year
with gorgeous days and perfect temps.

My faithful companion especially likes to be outdoors
this time of year basking in the sunshine.

My patch of bluebonnets started sprouting in December.
They peeked early, so they were at their best for our early Easter.
As you can see above though,  
they are now fading and going to seed.

Prennials and newly planted annuals are in bloom and
freshen up the front beds that get the afternoon sun.

The daylillies are full of buds.
It won't be long before they give us a daily show.
Just this mornng, a pretty yellow bloom 
greated as I walked out to the garden.
Take a look below to see what is soon to come.

Daylilies are considered a 
"sure bet perennial."

They are hardy plants that can adapt to most 
any soil and are both drought and frost tolerent. 

As their name implies, the blooms last for one day,
opening early morning and withering by nightfall.

Multiple blooms grow on each stalk
so that new blooms open
day after day.

Daylilies grow in clumps with long,
linear arching leaves.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
