Happy Easter!

To all who celebrate, I wish you a very Happy Easter and advise you not to overdo making up for whatever you gave up for Lent, lol.

To everyone else, Happy Spring...here, we have plenty of things already blooming...



It just goes to show that those Christmas bulbs are capable of living past the holiday season!  These are two different plants that were sold as double-headed Amaryllis, and indeed, when they were grown in their little pots, my MIL did end up with a double bloom.

Imagine my surprise to discover what they could do once planted in the ground and fed occasionally!


Below are the vividly colored blossoms that surprised me, they are from succulent plants that I never imagined would bloom.



And, last year, we were visited by a real live 'Easter bunny' who escaped from her yard a few doors down (it turned out), and decided to help prune some of the plants in our yard.  I learned that dandelions are a delicacy...both the flowers and the leaves...and that thorns are not a deterrent when a hungry rabbit wants to sample the new growth on the rosebushes, lol.

    1. Hi Mary! I did indeed have a lovely and well-fed Easter, hope you and your family did as well. We won't discuss the inroads I have made on my jelly-bean stash...although there are definitely fewer of certain colors than there used to be! Thanks for visiting.
