FOTO FRIDAY

Mary Ellen Babich sent us some photos for our first Foto Friday in March…Do you have something showing up in your yard you’d like to share?

Mary Ellen Writes:

The first flowers of Spring blooming in my garden are hardy bulbs, Galanthus nivalis, the common snowdrop.  Snowdrops poke through the snow in late February and bloom for a few weeks.  They grow in clumps, seldom need thinning, and eventually create drifts as the seeds fall to the ground and take hold.  They are perfect for naturalizing.

FOTO FRIDAY

tnJennie  sends up a photo of her rose.  “It is ‘Memorial Day’, a hybrid tea rose!  When my Dad died it was given to me by my MSUE office colleagues, and while I would not have chosen a tea rose, it was the 2004 All-America selection and earned the award for being both disease-resistant and fragrant.  It is both and I am glad to have it. The photo was taken on Memorial Day 2012.”  What a beautiful rose!  It’s just so full of bloom.

 

Sam DeCola  from Temperance Mi sent us a photo of his Knock-out Roses.  Sam is interested in becoming a Master Gardener.  He has the perfect job too, he’s employed at the nursery area of Andersons. The roses are a nice contrast to the fence and accent to the petunias.  Beautiful photo.

Foto Friday

Michele Buderniak added this photo from her back yard in late Fall.

Foto Friday is back.  It is good to have activity again on the Blog. Don’t be shy and send me your photos to post.   I want to thank Sue for all she did on our Blog and wish her the best.  Here are some photos that Diane took at the Demo Gardens.  For the next few Fridays I will post a few from the selection she gave me.  The gardens are in great shape.  Thank you volunteers, super job!  It’s Fall, but we still have blooms.

I feel kind of guilty posting these photos. They are nodding thistle (aka musk thistle) and they are highly invasive, but, OH, they are so pretty, and they smell wonderful! If you are cleaning out your ditches or pastures, you can enjoy them for awhile in a bouquet, just be sure to burn them or bag them tightly in your garbage so no seeds get into your environment. (If you single click on a photo, they will enlarge on your screen and you can scroll through them.)

This week we have two very different kinds of garden photos. Linda sent in a fitting entry – a Memorial Day garden theme incorporating an eagle, stars, and poppies. Linda, you never cease to amaze me with your ideas! Our other photo comes courtesy of Diane, who captured (photographically speaking) a baby bunny nest while working in the demo gardens. Yes, I know that rabbits can be a garden pest, but you have to love looking at the babies!
