Good things are blooming. The birds left me a thank you gift for feeding them all winter–a sunflower! I’ve tried to grow them intentionally both this year and last and haven’t succeeded, so it really is a nice gift.
I also bought a bag of tigridia bulbs way back in March and threw them in the ground before I’d done much other planning about what I was going to plant. I didn’t know what they’d be like, but the blooms are pretty now. I also just discovered from Wikipedia that the bulbs are edible so I guess if I really get tired of them I could dig them up for a snack…or not.
It’s not a flower, but my lettuce is also pretty. I don’t know what this variety is. It’s part of a mix of lettuces that I got for Christmas.
