Well done, nice photos!
I love your tulips, especially Queen of Night, the Bleeding heart is too pretty and I waiting for mine 'hearts' as well.
Do not remember, if have I written the statue of little girl is wonderful? It goes well with all flowers as she would gathered them.

Hi Nadezda
I fell in love with Elaine (my statue of the little girl feeding the birds) as soon as I saw her years ago! She does fit in very well among spring, summer and winter flowers. Happy GBBD!

Red tulips just make me smile. You have a great bloom day going and I hope it is a happy one.

Your tulips are lovely and your Forsythias are still so gorgeous! And of course your Trillium grandiflorum are so sweet, I really need to get them back in my garden :-)

Happy GBBD!

Hi Lee
Wish I had as many tulips as I had originally planted….darn squirrels!

Hi Layanee
I like almost every shade of tulip - especially black :)

Hi Helene
Glad all of our gardens have really started to come back to life. Lots of hard work now in the spring but it pays off big time.

The colour in your garden is great, especially the reds of the crab apple, tulips and bleeding hearts. It is nice to see colour other than brown:)

Welcome, Scott! Thanks. this is the time of year the crabapple really shines. I took a look at your blog and it's fantastic! I covet that allium that looks like sculpture. So beautiful. Thanks for dropping by and happy GBBD to you too!
