Spring is Officially Here

Some of the 300+ spring bulbs we planted last fall are just starting to emerge. These are probably daffodils and I also spotted some tiny crocus.
The Triumphator Lily bulbs that I dug up from the old house and divided are also emerging. If they all come up, we'll have 7 plants. They smell amazing although the flowers are short lived. They will line the bed along the walk to the front door. 
Here's an example from the web of what they look like. At our last place they got to be 4' tall, but they were in a cramped space.
To celebrate the start of the season, we went to the MK Nature Center in Boise for a stroll.
This gal was still being left alone. Give it a few weeks and the guys will be fighting over her. 
This is like a where's waldo shot. Its a terrible photo, but if you look at the bottom third of the photo, you just may pick out the deer's head in profile in the brush. Go straight up from the 4 in the 2014 watermark about 1/3 of the way up. I've never seen a deer at the MK. I know deer can be pretty urban critters, but it was still a surprise to me. There were actually two of them foraging for spring greens.

  1. All your bulbs should be gorgeous this spring!
    We've often seen deer at the MK nature center. I love it. We used to see them in our subdivision during the winters but not lately.
