Signs of Spring!! Woo Hoo!!!

The last Camellia bloom. This is a Lily that I rescued from the distressed rack at Lowes at the end of summer. It was so brown with just a tiny bit of green when I planted it. Curious to see what color it will be!
All four of my Pineapple Sage have new growth.
New growth on the Firebush.
Hydrangea showing new growth
Sweet Pea seedlings, hope these will grow to climb on my lattice.

Update: The neighbor lady did not cut all of the Paperwhites. If you enlarge and look to the right of the photo you will see some of the Paperwhite leaves still on the ground from the ones she cut in this area.
Taadaa! These are the ones she cut. I put them in a glass of water this past Tuesday and set them on the porch for ALL of the neighbors to enjoy.

This crazy neighbor keeps walking her dog up and down the road just by our house. If she doesn't let go of this situation soon she's going to wear herself out!!

Don't ya wish you had some kind of invisible shocker thingy that would shock "only" the neighbor, everytime she walked past your yard? Just a little shock. Not very nice, but it would be funny to watch.

I'm still waiting for my Camellias to bloom. With the winter we've been having, I have a feeling there will be some damage. I really do need to get out there and look around for signs of life! Love the Daffs :)

Valerie said...

Let her wear herself out and you go on doing what you love. Give her no attention. Eventually it will stop. Also pray for her. I know it is hard but that is what we are suppose to do. I love the signs of spring. It is suppose to be very warm here today. I love the sunshine!

You difinitely have spring coming out.You had colour in your garden all winter that must have taken some planning

Susie said...

Boy she has major issues! How old is she? 10? I'm glad to see you salvaged the blooms she cut. They look quite pretty. Don't you just love seeing those little seedlings? Ms. Spring is definitely visiting your garden.

Gardeness said...

Lots of great stuff showing up! And I love that you put the flowers out for all, including her, to see. Brilliant. Kill her with kindness.

tina said...

Yeah for spring!

I truly feel for you with your neighbor. I had a very crazy one for 7 years. They finally moved-in the same town and are still causing me issues which I won't go into here. It was awful not being safe in your own home or yard. I wish you luck with yours, take it one day at a time and hopefully they will move far far away.

I think I like camellias as much as roses.OH!for spring to come here. Do you have any good neighbors? That know about her?Or why she acts like a nut.

Sue said...

We're currently having a huge snow storm! I hope it's our last!

I agree with Valerie.

Hi Darla, those truly are signs of spring, those sweet pea babies are the greatest. It does seem like things are popping all around you, hydrangea buds, how wonderful. :-)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh Darla---I think spring is coming!!!! I love that lily that you rescued!!! Doesn't it feel good to rescue something like that and then bring it back to life??? How special!!!

We daffodils, crocus, and hyancinths have popped out of the dirt. I'm so excited!!!

Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day.
