Stuff's Blooming!




The herb garden has really filled out with the warm weather we've had recently.  You'd hardly believe it's still only April.  I LOVE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA!!

Hail, Snow and Frost

Are not friends of the garden. And we had them in spades last night and into the wee hours this morning.  You can see how the snow bent over the borage plants, which were blooming prettily yesterday.  And I took a close up of a poor double pink tulip, plus a yarrow.

Multiple tulip buds!

I've never seen a tulip like this before.  I'm so mad at myself for not keeping the labels from the bulb packages. This tulip is a double, mostly white with the merest hint of pink and it comes up with multiple flower buds on each plant!
