Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
The last of the holiday Amaryllis opened overnight, delaying a planned debut of this year’s hellebores. Amaryllis ‘Très Chic’ had already exceeded expectations with it first two stalks before sending up one more.
The vase is a hefty amphora created by our daughter during her high school days.
Amaryllis ‘Très Chic’ (Hippeastrum)
A dozen robins joined a backyard garden party of cardinals, wrens, mourning doves, towhees a couple of days ago, forming a cheerful reminder spring is on the way. Several days before I counted a half-dozen Red-winged Blackbirds gathering briefly in the redbud tree before continuing on their way.
I had help this year readying the garden—rabbit fencing and the first weeding, cutting back and mulching chores are checked off the list. Daffodils have been pushing through since December. Their buds are finally starting to show. A few spring flowers are on order. How about you?
Thanks to our host Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for providing this opportunity to share our vases. Visit her to discover what garden surprises she and others are offering this week.
