Beautiful pics Tracy!

But why is that little guy so sad and blue? :cry:

Just a guess, but are those flowers on the right a phlox? They are early bloomers. I'm glad to see that spring has finally sprung there. I thought spring was here too but it has turned chilly, brrr.

What all is blooming in your area now? Here, the tulips, grape hyacinths, tulip magnolia, fruit trees, red buds, , mahonias, wisteria and jonquils have faded, but the azaleas, lamiastrum, dogwoods, periwinkles, hyacinths, anemones and green and golds are in full bloom. At least that is what I can recall that I have seen blooming around here.

I'd like to see even more spring pictures ! Yay spring !!!

I love creeping phlox and have tried several times to get some to grow in my yard but it is too shady. :(
I do have a minuscule patch of garden phlox. It has managed to find a spot where it gets a few rays of sunshine, lol. I once had a tall garden phlox variety but alas it died to neglect. Unfortunately my garden has that problem with me. My plants have to be extremely self-sustaining. :roll:

Tracy,

I had one that looked like a Toucan. It never worked right and finally broke the other day. But my brother had a Tiki one that worked for a long time.

Clara,

Thanks for the heads up about the toxicity.

I think that sweet Williams are biennials. They should grow this year and bloom next spring. If they are the sweet William plants that I know. Maybe they will reseed themselves and continue to grow in that spot as well. I like that nice black soil you have there. Mine is orange, clayey and full of rocks, lol.
