Ah Spring!

Ahhh! How I love daffodils! Last year I dug a new garden and moved some bulbs from the backyard into the front. I also planted a few daffodil bulbs and waited to see what would come up. Well I am delighted to have these little beauties growing in front of my house:

Here is a beautiful purple tulip that was once in the backyard.

And here's my "competition"....Rich's parents are Dutch and this is one of their front gardens.

All the neighbours remark on how beautiful these tulips are. Being right next door to us I get to see them every day, but they really don't bloom very long, so I decided to capture their splendor with my camera. I'm surprised the photos turned out so well, as there was quite a breeze causing the flowers to sway and not sit still!

I've never undertood why squirrles would bite their own heads off, especially this time of year. Now, I can see it during the winter months, what with all the cold, snow, and of course freezing nuts and all!

Lovely pics!

Well wouldn't you know it, this morning I found the purple tulip decapitated! What's worse is the head was just lying there on the ground beside its "body". I always thought squirrels ATE the tulip heads....but if they're just gonna LEAVE them there....I might start biting some squirrel heads myself!
