A trip to Minnesota always finds us at
It's nice on a nice Sunday afternoon to get out and get some fresh air
And it's fun to see what is in bloom or in bud --
It's early in Minneapolis, the early bulbs are the only things blooming
Some perennials are poking their noses above ground
But not all!
There still might be a freeze before true warm weather comes!
I fell in love with these squills and decided that I need some for Linderhof's garden
A crocus here and there . . . but not many
And some nice plantings of
Mostly purple ones
The smell near those beds was heavenly!
And in the beds and beds of tulips
They were growing
Some were in bud
And a few
Were in bloom -- like this beautiful yellow one
Inside . . .
We found this annual tree . . .
A poinsettia tree at Christmas -
An orchid tree in winter
Now holding the annuals that will be placed in the gardens outside
Daughter Sarah's favorite . . .
A pink and white begonia
A red one -- that looks more like a rose.
An Arboretum visit is always a must when we visit.
Grandgirl Lucy has spent many miles on the paths at the Arboretum
And it was nice to get out and about!
