Susan B

Thanks for sharing your lovely thoughts and photos. The way you feel about daffodils is the way I feel about lilacs. Ours are in full bloom now and I've lost count of the times I've gone outside just to bury my nose in the blossoms.
I didn't know that fact about dandelions and bees but judging from our neighborhood, our bee population must be very healthy this year!


Thank you for the walk through your garden, and the reminder that you have to stop sometimes to really see and appreciate what is around you.
We are a little ahead of you here in North Carolina, and my irises are spent, my crocuses long gone, and my peonies are almost gone, too. But this year my husband and I are eagerly awaiting the blooms on my hydrangea, a plant that we hovered over to protect from our numerous late hard freezes this year. My husband created this mish mash of sheets and chairs and trash cans to drape the buds but not weigh them down, and to try to protect them from the frosts. (Of course, I took a picture of it...). We really looked like the Clampets from time to time. We are sure it will have been worth it. So we hover and wait. I'll keep you posted.
