I think it’s time :) 

Could not find one for this year, so starting a new thread with emergency flower cutting after spring storm :)

    Very nice, @Lena_vs_Deer.  It’s very windy here today so I’ll probably end up doing a few of those myself.

    I like how the first snowdrop picture captured the ray of light.

    @Lena_vs_Deer they are absolutely gorgeous. How thoughtful - that would really make me smile!

     Not a single one of my nearest neighbors actually gardens aside from keeping lawns



    Crazy, isn't it? Of around 120 households on my street I know three that garden the back and one that tends the front apart from me. Most are plastic grass or concrete.

    Thank you @BlueBirder !

    @Fire it is pretty crazy… I have some suspicion on how that might have happened. One of  them is being based on the house we bought. As I keep living in it and removing lawn grass from backyard, I keep finding peonies and other stuff finding it’s way to surface again. Many tree stumps too. I found many roses re-growing in weirdest places that probably were pulled from the ground but couldn’t be removed completely … So I’m thinking there might have been many gardens some years ago everywhere here, but they were leveled to the ground and rolled over with lawn to sell properties more easily. There’s a sentiment going around among real estate agents here that people get scared off by established gardens and all the care that comes with it. But it makes me really sad heh.

    This is not so much a posy as kind of pre-emptive head heading - things about to go over / broken stems. But it's one of my first bunches of the year. 😊
