Spectacular! Happy GBBD!

Rose said...

This is a feast for the eyes for those of us still waiting for the daffodils to come up. The kale is so pretty--I've never seen one in flower like this.

Deb said...

Darla,

your flowers are so pretty, can't wait till I have more flowering... stop by to visit if you get a chance...I have been invited to play a game and thought you might want to play also

Gail said...

Fantastic blooms Darla! I noticed the ornamental kale I planted last fall is blooming...I love the yellow flowers against the purple plant! It will bring in the butterflies...well their seeds may already be on the kale! Gail

I have that exact same bromiliad and never knew what it was. It winters over under the house and is blooming right now. You have lots of color going on. I love it all-especially the society garlic.

It's a bit surreal to me to see Snowdrops & Salvia blooming at the same time. The Candytuft/Kale/Daffodil combo is really nice. Love the Dogwood.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Darla, We're home!!! Had a great trip--but it was different this time due to the weather. You'll have to read my blog today!!!! Drove home in the pouring rain yesterday--so was THRILLED to get home.

I read your blogs for the week.. Looks like spring has sprung in North Florida--in addition to the pollen.

We found crocus in bloom when we got home AND a few of our daffodils. I love your yellow daffodils with the orange trumpet. Gorgeous!!!!

Enter me in the giveaway please. I'll post a note on that particular blog post. Thanks... The candles look incredible.

Hugs,
Betsy

It's been so pretty out this weekend. I hope you had the same weather so you could play out in the flowers.

Shellmo said...

Nice to look at your flower paradise over there!! I think salvia is becoming one of my faves!

Sue said...

Great blooms! I love the stocks and society garlic.

You're so lucky to be able to grow such a beautiful dogwood tree!

Femin Susan said...

Hi...
Nice flowers... You have some lovely plantings and are very thoughtful to share them with us..

flowergardengirl said...

Do you see me drooling and wishing for warm weather? I can see how pretty your garden is right now and happy for you. Has that pesky pollen gone away?

Great bloom day post and fabulous dementia test! What a hoot; I barely passed!

JGH said...

Hi Darla - thanks for visiting Nyack Backyard and giving me the heads up on the bloom day comments. I think I already commented here, but I thought why not come back? Your flowers are so outstanding! Sorry I didn't have any outdoor blooms for you this month, but my crocuses finally popped out yesterday so next GBBD will be more productive, I hope. Have a great week!
