Is it Spring ?
Posted on Mar 10, 2018 10:12 AM

The Daffodils are blooming like mad - Crocus just finished ..
Now, the Flowering Almond, covered with little packages of beauty to be, are opening.

Keep telling them "it is still March - it will probably snow on you" -- but, they have one thing in mind - Bloom!
Oh my, discovered a Tulip in the Garden of Surprises !
Moved here in 2013 - no Tulips at all - none.
Until now --- hope it blooms so I can show you what she looks like .. had no idea they could be dormant for so many years. Learn something new everyday I go to take photos in the Gardens and see if anyone new has arrived !

This is the 1st Day Lily to re-bloom -- think I'm in shock.

Had researched in NGA on how / why they re-bloom. Go ahead and read all the posts from Gardeners more plant-savy than me. They explain it better.
I'm still at the stage of '' what is / how do I find out a cultivar '' so I can post a photo in the Plant Database and it will make sense to y'all.

Happy digging,

Just found these on the White Iris buds and on some leaves.
Method to get rid of them ?
