Aren't they beautiful? Don't they gladden the heart? Enjoy them.

Jennifer said...

Yes, they're like waking up to a nice new little surprise every day. Makes the long winter worth the wait (kind of!). Thanks for stopping by. :-)

Awwww beautiful! What a lovely garden you must have Jennifer.

I love flowers too. My small garden is filled with flower plants and a huge mango tree. Ha ha ha.. they don't really go together but are the best mangos ever.

Jennifer said...

Wow, Alicia-- a mango tree sounds so exotic! I'm trying a few vegetables in containers this year. The deer eat everything around here, and I didn't have time to fence in an area. There's always next year!

Oh wow! What a beautiful garden you must have!

Jennifer said...

Thanks, Barbara! Well, I love it, but you know how it is... it's never really done. Notice how I cropped all the weeds out... ;-)

beautiful!! we have many similar flowers in our gardens. things are taking forever to bloom this year for sure. the yellow flowers in the first picture are in almost every one of my beds (spread fast!)...are they a type of primrose? everyone around here calls them something different. i painted a WC of these years ago...i'll have to post it at some point.

Jennifer said...

Christine-- It seemed like everything bloomed at once around here. I've always called them Evening Primrose. They'll take over if you let them!

Ha, ha.. yes I can imagine sounding a bit exotic. But mango trees are every where here. Kids pick mangoes up from the street trees all the time. In fact there are so many that people usually put bags full of them in the front of their houses to give away.

I've never ever have bought a mango in a supermarket. I find it funny when I go to the States and see mangoes for over a buck!

But on the other hand, if I want to get a honey bunches of oats cereal box here is a little around 25$ worth! How about that? Makes me very sad.. I love my cereal :o(

Growing vegetables sounds like fun Jennifer. Hope you get lots of them. :o)

Jennifer said...

That's so cool, Alicia. The only times I've bought one here they go from not ripe to rotten overnight. I can't seem to time it right.

Yikes that's expensive for cereal. Food prices are going up quickly around here, too... though not that high...yet...
