Welcome to Bloomin' Tuesday!



I'm really excited about the beginning of Bloomin' Tuesday! I can't wait to see what's "bloomin' where you are planted"!Here are 4 buttons to pick from if you would like one on your sidebar or on your Bloomin' Tuesday post. (Thanks Chris, my favorite son-in-law, for the buttons and the tech help!) Our maple trees are bloomin' here in Western New York. Won't be long and the trees will be covered with leaves. I have some trillium bloomin'. These are not the wild variety. They are definitely one of my favorites! I also have several prim roses that are open. Some are in bud as soon as the snow melts. They love the cool weather and almost look dead when it gets too hot.I love the white around the centers and edges on this pink one. I showed daffodils last week and now it's tulip time. I only have a couple here and there but I love to see large clumps of them The black centers are a strong contrast to the soft colors. How many shades of pink are in one little flower? Show us your blooms! You can show everything that is blooming, post about a specific plant that you enjoy or a garden tour you went on. You have complete control over what you post, as long as it is garden related. The 2 buttons are available if you would like to add one to your blog. Of course, if this is going to work, you will have to direct people to the list so they can sign up or just enjoy the posts. I will have Mr Linky up about 10 o'clock on Monday nights so you can add your link any time from then on. You must sign up every week you want to participate. I do ask that you link to the specific post and not your entire blog. (Click on the time at the bottom of your post and copy the address from there.)

You are so lucky to have so many flowers in bloom already...I only have that one lone daffodil so far! lol I have lots of tulips that should be opening in a week or so and more daffodils to bloom as well. It's turned cold again so I'm sure they're saying "no way are we blooming yet"!! lol

I just love the clothes you bought for Jerzie...I'm glad she decided to model after all, she's soooo sweet looking:-) xox
