I have been spring cleaning and came across some old planters that were my grandmothers. I had forgotten I had them so it was a nice surprise.
Grandma always kept and labeled most everything. My mother and I found several things, including a picture of a relative of ours in his civil war uniform. Amazing!
This is a planter that was labeled as my great grandmother's.
Here are a few that weren't labeled. But every bit of a nice surprise.
I went to the local home improvement store the other day looking for some window coverings. I love going there in the spring, gets you in the mood for outdoor activities, (not that I need any help in that area) As I walk in there are several primroses displayed and of course I couldn't resist buying one of them.
It looks great in Grandma's old planter!

It has been a rainy start for March. No complaints though, it's better than snow. It's just been difficult to get outside and get to work on some things.
One area of my yard is so wet that when I walked through my feet started to sink, and mind you, there wasn't any water standing, so it took me by surprise. I did manage to get some quick pictures (in between rain) of some plants sprouting in my garden.
Here is a tulip peeking through along the pathway to my front door. Believe it or not I'm not a big tulip fan as far as growing them. But they are beautiful in bloom. The tulips along this pathway are reds and pinks. Very pretty last year.
Another tulip sprout through the snow on the north side of my
home. The only place the snow hadn't melted a couple of days ago, but the snow is gone now. This tulip is under my tulip tree. It's a small or dwarf type tulip, I don't know what type it is, it came with the house. The colors are magenta looking and yellow. Unique and different than the tulips I am used to.
