Hi, all, I took a little stroll around the house just now and thought I'd share a few flowers that are blooming in our gardens......things are pretty sparse right now, but I can see lots of green starting to peak through the soil. I decided to bring a tiny bouquet inside with me. These are miniature daffodils, maybe called tete-a-tete, along with the gorgeous blue scilla, and I think the white ones are wood hyacinths - they grow on separate little stems instead of a big flower cluster like regular hyacinths. All of them are bulbs. The daffodils, I think, are emitting a slight fragrance
Here's another picture with my nest that I cherish, filled with old robin's eggs or pieces of them. Every spring I scout around the big blue spruces in back and often find discarded eggs. The nest is, we think, a hummingbird one that my Dad found one year, made of horsehair (he lives adjacent to a barn housing horses).
