Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Tuesday's Treasures #7

Today's treasure is of a very different sort than previous posts.

The treasure here is the return each spring of blossoms appearing from bulbs planted in years past.


These crocus appeared in bloom in the Perennial Garden outside my bedroom window.


I was totally surprised because there had been no hint of green or buds before Monday.  Then in the warmth of the day they appeared.


The pond too brought out a surprise on Monday.  Above it barely looks like its out of winter let alone time for spring.  But the creatures knew otherwise and the chorus started on Monday afternoon for a very short while.


I spotted the lone singer.

Treasures of a different sort, yet valued each spring.

Linking to Tuesday Treasures.

That does look springish! Nice shots - we are starting to get much cooler evenings here - but the forecast says that summer is not over yet!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Love the little soloist. And such pretty crocuses. No flowers here until May. Enjoy those sweet flowers.

Treasures of nature are always adorable, especially in spring

Our crocus leaves are up and the gaffs are trying to bloom...and now they are forecasting 3 inches of snow possibility Thursday night and Friday. That is not good for the little flowers. I son’t want them to freeze. Your captures are so pretty of the crocus. The purple they give us is sososo beautiful.

Oh for sure the Crocus are perfect treasures. We also have a chorus of froggies out here too.

I didn't grow moss on the truck on purpose---like Topsy--it just grew. It is just so wet out here there is moss on almost everything. LOL
