It was below freezing here this morning.
I decided to get a few pictures yesterday – before blooms and buds are ruined by the freeze.
Our snowball bush is full of blooms.
You saw the these blooms’ buds in my last What’s Blooming Wednesday post.
With our strangely cool temps this Spring, the daisies have very short petals. I’ve never noticed this happening in previous years. If you have daisies, do yours look similar to these?
Daisies are Painter Artist Mom’s favorite flowers. I shared with you last year how I like to plant flowers that are favorites of my female relatives.
My grandmother, PAM’s mom, loved irises. These are a few of the bazillions in our yard that began with a few plants originating from my grandmother’s yard. My late great-aunt shared them with PAM, who passed some along to me…
A few iris buds are reacting to the near freeze Monday night. I hate to see them after last night – may not have the heart to look.
One of my Baptisia plants has shot up. I need to check my Landscape and Garden Journal to see which type this is.
Nearby, the Dutch Iris blooms lack their usual color. To see their splendid coloring last year, check out What’s Blooming Wednesday #1. Hmm…I wonder if I fertilized them last year.
I decided to cut the blooms before the freeze. I brought them inside for our dining table.
We need to enjoy the blooms God gives us in the best way we know how, despite the weather.
Did you have a freeze last night? What are your blooms looking like?
