Around this time last year, the very first flower of my very first home began blooming.
And then last fall, I dug up my entire garden and planted some beautiful purple and white pansies as well as some permanent foliage which will bloom this summer (I hope).
But I guess I forgot about the tulips, because I saw three of them sprouting up in the garden – oops!
I think I’m going to wait until they bloom and then plant them near the camellia “bush-trees” for next spring… along with some other bulbs from Scott’s Valentine’s gift (it’s very late, but I’ll share that with you all soon!).
Despite my oversight, seeing these thick green leaves popping up out of the ground is yet another reminder that spring is on its way. Time to get a move on with all of my planned spring projects!
My tulips also appeared this week… and I had forgotten about them, as well! You have to love something that comes back every year(that is SO rare in Texas). My grandmother had camelia trees when I was a kid(one white, one pink). I used to pick them and make bouquets all the time.
