In the fall, I planted a few different types of bulbs. Six months on, I'd completely forgotten what - and where - I'd planted. Yesterday, I made a circuit of the property to see what was what and lo! there was greenery! And flowery!

A previous owner planted these daffodils, for which I am grateful.

These will be tulips. Well, they're already tulips. Soon, these will be tulips in full bloom. Unless the deer eat them. They already devoured the lily shoots.

Another gift from a previous owner. Does anyone know what they are?

Aside from quite pretty, that is.

EDIT: they're Chionodoxa, also known as 'Glory-in-the-snow'


Turns out I planted crocuses. Lots of them.

My chives are making an early comeback. Hello, chives! I've missed you!

... I think those are either asphodels or the flowers called Mary's Eyes, I'm not sure which. :)

(Purdy! But I live in a flat and am a lazy arse, so... no flowers for me.)

I want to be you when I grow up. I hope you don't mind.

The both of you are so very, very lovely.

Gracious, me. *tries not to be a ridiculous mush*

No kidding, you are SOOOOO COOOOL!

Can you email me a reminder where you live again? I would really enjoy coming to visit a bit during my summer break before my summer job, if you would have me.
