Scavenger Hunt Sunday March 25 2012

This week's prompts are:
Whimsy, Create, Dust, Seed or Sprout, and Swing or Drop

Whimsy:
Frog Musicians

Create:
I enjoy creating photographs.
This reminds me of the poem "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer.
Remember the closing lines:
"Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree."
Dust:

       Spring is here! Time to dust off the plant stands!
       A strong jet of water from the hose will clean this up.


There. Much better!
Columbines and Amaryllis on my front porch.

Seed or Sprout:
I sprout grass seeds for my indoor cat. She loves them!

Swing or Drop:
Just the slightest breeze will make these tiny dew drops live up to their name
and drop to the ground!

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day March 15 2012

What's blooming in my north Mississippi , zone 7, garden?

The pear tree blooms are falling to the ground where they mingle with the violets.
I do not know what the tiny yellow wildflower is.

More Violets under the pear trees.

These reddish-purple Violets are on a slope under a huge oak tree.


The Hellebores are fading, losing their vibrant colors, but the bees still find them alluring.

Grape Hyacinths are springing up everywhere!

The Oxalis are still blooming!
This is their third consecutive appearance for GBBD.


Most of the Daffodil blooms are gone.
Just a few late-bloomers like this one.
If I knew its name, I would buy dozens more!

The Peach trees are just beginning to bloom.


Japanese Magnolia is sometimes called Tulip Tree.



I tried to get one of my garden helpers to pose among the violets,
but after rolling around on the ground for a minute,
he came running to me.
End of photo session!

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
