Welcome to this week’s blog hop for Nature Friday. Today we join our weekly hosts, Rosy, Sunny, Arty and Jakey from LLB in Our Backyard to celebrate a special edition of Nature Friday ~ Flowers for Marg.
Marg Elemendorf of Marg’s Animals, is a well known blogger who is loved and followed by so many over the years. Today we all come together to make Marg’s birthday extra special since she lives alone caring for her many and beloved kitties. Happy Birthday, Marg!
Please feel free to leave your own birthday wishes here at this link.
Today is a birthday two-fer for me. Norman, Elsa and I of course send best wishes to Marg but we also send them to one of my dearest friends, Cheryl who celebrates an extra special birthday today. Happy birthday, sweet lady. I’m looking forward to celebrating with you in person this weekend.
Alright, let’s see if we can put together a bouquet of flowers for these two special women who do so much for others. Although spring is taking its sweet time arriving in the Mile High City and it may be a bit premature to cut a lush bouquet for indoor display still, there are some early spring bulbs that suggest bouquets gracing a table won’t be too far away.
Earlier this week we saw the first blooming tulips in a border along one of our walks. So cheerful and happy looking.
While the past couple of days have been cooler than our warm Easter weekend, seeing tulips blooming always brings smiles to winter-weary hearts in the Rockies.
While our garden is just waking up, there was one early bloomer that caught me off guard. I don’t ever recall seeing pink Phlox quite this early. What a nice splash of color, wouldn’t you agree?
On a quick trip to a store I rarely shop at, I stopped by their flower department a couple of days ago and saw an incredible display of indoor orchids. These two deeply colored (and not edited to boost their vibrancy, mind you) stopped me dead in my tracks. I stared for several minutes taking in all that beauty.
Definitely out of the ordinary yet stunning in true orchid style.
We hope you all have a beautiful Friday. Please enjoy some nature and find time to make your weekend grand.
Live love, bark! 🐾
