Daffodils – Floral Friday Fotos -3-27-15

Tulips and daffodils are two flowers I so look forward to seeing announce their presence each spring. After waiting impatiently through the cold, dreary days of winter and this go round watching foot after foot of snow stack on the ground, the emergence of these floral favorites takes on an even more significant plain.

Daffodils have such a magnificent bloom set. I also included a photo of a mass planting of daffodils on the way to the high school may children attend.

2015 A to Z Theme Reveal – My Favorite Plants

Welcome to my 2015 A to Z Theme Reveal for Chasing the Blooms. In 2013 I took part in my initial A to Z challenge and did not put as much thought into how I wanted to approach the challenge. in truth I did not find out about it un til days before, so there wasn’t time to do much other than my 26 posts. I missed last years turn but wanted to give 2015 a really solid try. This year I have redesigned my blogging efforts and have 4 blogs entered into the A to Z.

For this particular one my focus is on the flowers I have around my property or ones I want to add. My challenge will be finding ones that will equate with some of the odd letters. I may have to get really creative to do this.

Some of the flowers I will share will be repeats of posts I have done previously during the year. Some will also come from the Floral Friday Fotos weekly link-up, where I get the opportunity to enjoy favorite flowers from around the world. I find it interesting to see that some of my favorites are also favorites in other parts of the world.

I hope this will make for an exciting and colorful journey as we count the days in April. I appreciate your visit to my theme reveal and invite you to not only return for the 2015 A to Z challenge, but to check out my other theme reveals as well.

Tulips – Floral Friday Fotos -3-20-15

After waiting impatiently through the cold, dreary days of winter and this go round watching foot after foot of snow stack on the ground, the emergence of these floral favorites takes on an even more significant plain.

Our tulips and daffodils share the same space around the base of a Cleveland Pear tree in our front yard. Sometimes the Tulips don;t do as well, but last spring they were so triumphant in their appearance. I am still waiting on Tulip Show 2015.

Gazanias – Friday Floral Fotos – 3/13/15

 

When I owned a greenhouse I came across these great little flowers that were fabulous in full sun and required little water to not only survive but thrive. The blooms close when the sun goes down and re-open with sun-up. This is part of the Floral Friday Fotos link-up.

My Love of Clematis

By now, if you have read many of my posts, you know I love ALL flowers. But love comes in many degrees, right? Clematis is one of my higher degrees of love. My most favorite of all time is a white Clematis we has at our first home. Unfortunately it did not survive the move. It was white as snow and I have yet to find it again. I will dig for a photo of it and scan it to my computer to add here. In the meantime I hope you enjoy the ones we have now. I know I have some photos of a blue one, but cannot find them right now. I will edit if I find.

This is a Montana Ruebens Clematis. Light pink with habit to grow 35-40 feet. Due to the weight it cannot climb the light pole in the middle.
