At least I'm not lazy;)

I came home yesterday and the white tulips that have been growing in the middle of my lawn every year were yellow. What is up with my yard that the white flowers turn into yellow ones?

I know I haven't been blogging as frequently as I used to and I haven't been commenting as much either. I also haven't been able to keep up with my gardening or other things in my life.

I thought I was being distracted or maybe just plain lazy. But it turns out after spending a few days in the hospital, that I have some diabetes and thyroid problems. Somehow that made me anemic and so I guess I've been sick and didn't even know it.

I'm going to be taking some time to get back on track, so I don't know how often I'll be posting. But I do think of you and check on your blogs often. And I'm going to leave you with a little something that made me smile today:)

Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

I have flowers blooming! Not too many, but I still have to clean out the beds so that's ok. Let's see now, first I found the yellow daffodils that were supposed to be white when I bought them.I still haven't bought any bulbs from Home Depot since then.

Then I saw a few Periwinkle or vinca vine whichever you prefer. I prefer to call them invasive weeds.

Right below that is a Hyacinth,and there are purple and white ones in the front yard.

Last of all are these little white flowers I forget what they are called.

The crocus are done now and the tulips are just starting to think about getting buds. It's nice to have a few pretties come up before the grand show;)
