A couple of days with unusually warm temperatures, 80's, changed the look of things around here, A lot of new green in the trees. The red buds started blooming over night. My tulips burst forth with their spring show.
Wish ing everyone a great day in your garden. With love, Mr Bill

What's with this crazy weather. It's 85 degrees and that's in the shade. There was also a ruby throated hummingbird feeding on some tulips blooming next to the house. Didn't get a picture. Don't know what in store for tomorrow. Expecting thunder storms. Hope everyone has a good day.

I was out today riding the golf cart around the loop where I live on down here in the country near Lake Cumberland. I take my dog, Easy, for a run. I saw daffodils, crocus, forsythia, many others blooming. I even saw my first dandelion. The weather was sunny but nippy, around 42 degrees. The official start of spring is next Wednesday. I hope everyone is as anxious as I am to get started in the garden.
Subtl e changes, but the show continues. See the tall orange one hiding in the valance. It's not quite the middle of winter and we are enjoying 60 plus degrees today, probably in the seventies tomorrow. This is definitely crazy weather.
I have an update to my amaryllis show. I will have more blooms this year then I ever had blooming at one time. This season of blossoms is just getting started and already is tantalizing to the eyes. I hope to entertain you with my show.
Today the first of many amaryllis has bloomed. A delicate white with a green core and tinged with red on the edges.
Here are two more views.
< p>There are a total of eighteen bud stalks starting right now with many more to come. It's going to be a showy winter and early spring from my indoor amaryllis garden. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.
