Floral delivery.

Sending a little good cheer your way! 🙂

I can’t believe tomorrow is March 1st (wasn’t it just Christmas?)! What fun plans – gardening or otherwise – do you have for the new month?

    • What types of seeds do you usually start? Veggies, flowers? I really ought to get more into starting my own annuals…it’s getting so expensive to purchase them at the garden centre. I have very limited space, however.

      I hope your weather settles down for the month of March – you’ve had a lot of snow and storms this year!

  1. Have to repair the retic pipe I cracked the other day when trying to plant my apple tree … who puts retic pipes in the middle of the grass no where near the sprinklers!!!

    Also going to plant some new veggies … the corn and beans are coming on strong, hoping for some veggies to eat very soon.

    Thanks for sharing.

    • Oh no… I hope that repair goes well for you!

      Glad to hear your veggies are doing well…do you have a large garden? I’m always excited to hear about everyone’s gardening plans, and what they have success with in their climate.

      Thanks so much for stopping by Flowery Prose – I appreciate that you’ve taken the time to read and share your thoughts! 🙂

    • That IS fun! It will be at least another month and a half before I can cut back my perennials. It’s awesome that you can get out there and do some work! I keep going out and searching for green growth in the few patches of earth that aren’t currently under a layer of ice and snow, but so far my crocuses aren’t showing themselves. A big snowstorm is coming in from the north sometime today, but you’d never know it, with all the sunshine we’re currently having. Here in Calgary we always say, “Wait five minutes, and the weather will change,” and it’s true!

  2. I love tulips! No doubt, where is the time going? My Aunty Kathleen’s been away and back tomorrow, so we’ll have a pow wow at her place next week and hopefully get to the Diana exhibit now showing in Edmonton. Has many of her outfits including her wedding dress and lots of photo’s. That’s about it but so far so good.

  3. Hi Sheryl! A pretty tulip – thanks! I’m getting excited at the thought of actually being able to work in the garden! Loads of tidying up to do, as I leave all the leaves and debris over winter as a protective “mulch”. Tomorrow they’ve promised us sunshine, and the snow should be almost gone by then… Have a nice weekend!

    • Thanks, Cathy! It’s great to hear that you’ll be able to get out and do a little bit of work in the garden this month! We had plus 12 degrees Celsius here yesterday (soooo heavenly!) but a heavy snowfall warning is in effect for today. Pretty much the whole month of March is like that here…you never know what coat to wear! 🙂

      I hope you’re having a fabulous weekend!

  4. Ah, tulips. Such a beautiful flower. And here, we don’t get enough cold for them to return. I love that shade of purple. And yes, I find it hard to believe it’s already March!

    • I adore tulips, but I’m restricted to fresh cut ones…the squirrels seem to have a particular hankering for any I’ve ever planted (no matter how deep I set them in the ground). I’ve tried for years but have finally given up. Plenty of our neighbours are successfully growing tulips…I guess I should be flattered that the squirrels like mine best! 😉

      It’s too bad that you can’t keep them over, but I can see how the heat would prevent that. Are they popular as fresh cut flowers there? Right now, our florists are inundated with them, and every grocery store is selling bundles of them for just a couple of dollars.

    • Oh, I can imagine what an amazing experience that would have been to grow up in such an atmosphere! But I’m sure it was very hectic, with all the seasonal holidays.

      Spring flowers are particularly special for anyone who has to dig out of a dreary, cold, or snowy winter…that pop of colour and fragrance is like pure sunshine! 🙂

  5. Hi Sheryl,

    Thanks for the floral delivery, it is a beautiful flower. Well I am heavy into March already, did some small job in the shop and yesterday I went with your Mom to the opera Parsifal, it was a six hour event, rather spiritual and wonderful music.

I'm delighted to hear from you - thanks so much for your comments!
