Bloom Day

The first Buds of spring


Feast your eyes on these lovely blooms. I just spotted them or I would have added them to my GBBD post. I think that the porta-potties and the Arby’s sign are essential to the mise en scene.

    And that styrofoam is also essential. It’s actually a haunting shot.

    BTW, this is just St Pat’s Day parade stuff. It’s not a chronic condition, thank goodness!

  3. Love the general approach to gardening here. I will be back to read more when time allows. I live in SoCal and so can garden year round (can and do are not synonyms) and get to grow interesting things in addition to food. *Love the pics*, plants are so lovely.

    Thanks for accepting this unorthodox submission, Carol!

  5. My first thought is this must be the northern urban version of the southern bottle tree in a vacant lot down by the river. St Paddy’s day residue is a much more comforting thought.

    The porta potties have hot skinny chicks serving beer on tap.

  7. I think someone deserves credit for not throwing them on the ground. Personally, I’d prefer a Guinness bottle tree. Bud just doesn’t do it — esp. for St. Paddy’s Day!

    It is a mystery to me how beer and St. Patrick came to be connected. I agree with Pam J. that this is a haunting shot.

    You got me!

    My yard is filled with blossoms – native peach, plum, redbud and orchard fruits. Plus tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and their friends.

    I fully expected to see buds. Laughed out loud. Thanks.

    I have heard that such buds contain intoxicating nectar.

  11. This bud’s for you. 😉
