What’s Blooming today!

More tulips today 😀

I did go to someone’s house today for our monthly garden club meeting.  I have total house envy.  It is newly built in the Adirondacks on a lake.  I am soooo jealous!  I would have taken pictures, but I didn’t want to do that and plaster them on the internet LOL.  She had mostly just stonescaping done as the house is less than a year old, but so pretty.

Instead, I just have photos of my garden today.  Small as it is, I do love it so.

The Passionale have opened up:

I love the deep color of these.

The Shirley tulip.  These are the ones that start out white and the purple gets darker the older the bloom is.

I planted more of those last fall.

The Golden Parade are on their last legs, but I wanted to show you how giant the blooms are on these tulips.  Compared to my hand:

The Queen of the Night have also just started to open up.

These will get even darker.  The white tulips with them are not quite open yet.  They still look a little green.  Next week they will be purty!

Our area has just gotten the wave of Red Admirals coming through.  There are tons and tons of them!  They are all over the lilacs and even just landing on our house.

I have never seen this many butterflies in one place outside of a butterfly conservatory.

And yes, I was all up in their grills 😀  Macro!

This weekend is going to be good weather wise, so we will be ride, ride riding!


Question:  Are you experiencing the Red Admiral wave?

    The tulips are just lovely. We have a beautiful tulip festival here…not sure if we will get there this weekend, but I hope to try.

    The Red Admirals are all over here! I didn’t know what they were called, so thanks for the info. Last night we hiked in a local arboretum and they were everywhere! I love how they play tag in pairs. So romantic.

    Enjoy the riding! I think I see a cupcake in your future.

    And just to let you know…today I bought raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries. Haven’t had any yet, but soon. 😉

    My favorite line in this post is, “next week they will be purty,” and you know exactly why….please hold to some of these tulips in your area till I get there ONE WEEK FROM TODAY!
