Tiptoe through my tulips.
Look at how my little garden grows!
Tulips and daffodils are new to the garden, thanks to a generous gift of bulbs from a former colleague (thanks, Pat!). I wasn't sure how they would do, especially given those little pesky squirrels who seem to enjoy my garden even more than I do. But I'm quite happy with the colorful results.
My other spring blooms made their appearance as the tulips started to fade.
Even the pansies I planted in the fall (that spent most of the winter buried under some 71" of snow) are blooming.
One of my neighbors says I have magical soil. Maybe I do.
Speaking of tiptoeing through the tulips, I've started to play ukulele. Not a typo. I bought myself a uke for my birthday a couple of months ago and a lovely young man (dude?) is attempting to teach me to play. Tonight's my second to last lesson. Maybe I'll make my performance debut on the blog.
But not just yet. My ukulele playing isn't nearly as magical as my soil.
