Bzzzz April 22nd, 2011

April is quite a yellow month, isn’t it? I mean, there’s the forsythia, the witch hazel, the daffodils. If that weren’t enough we can now get our azaleas in shades of orange-yellow. And don’t forget that drop-dead beautiful magnolia ‘Yellow Bird.’ (I want.)

You know what? I don’t care. After seeing brown, brown, brown all winter long, I like a nice, bright yellow.

Bring it on.  In fact, let’s do some masses of yellow.

Harry and I have been slowly adding to our daffodil collection. We started near the house by the driveway. Last fall we planted a grouping about a quarter mile up the driveway—a sunny little patch to greet visitors.

I even added a few crocuses and muscari in the mix to see how the deer would like them. They didn’t.

Next fall we’ll add even more yellow. For another yellow April.

Click on the photo to embiggen all the deer and chickens together.

Oh give me a home Where the Papillons roam And the deer and the chickens do play… Where never was heard A four-letter word Though I watch them eat plants all day.
