Bloomin' Tuesday - Spring is in the Air!

It's Bloomin' Tuesday over at Green Thumb Jean's Blog. She invites all us garden friends to also post what is blooming in our garden today.

It looks like spring is in the air at Anne Fannie's Green Acres. We have had warm and cold days then warm and cold days, etc. Some of my plants are starting to look really good for February! I have also noticed birds starting to make their nest in some of my bird houses!

My daffodils are blooming in different colors. My favorite is the ones with the orange center

Did you know that gophers and ground squirrels do not mess with daffodils?I just love this yellow rose bush. I don't know the name of it because it was here when I bought the place. It has really long stems, does anyone know the name? I love Marigold flowers. I really like the fact that the rabbits, gophers and ground squirrels don't like to eat them either. Probably because they smell awful! My daisy bushes are starting to bloom like crazy. I forgot to take a picture of the yellow and white bushes. These are the pink and purple daisy bushes.

I planted these snapdragons last September and they survived all winter long and now they are starting to bloom more flowers. I surround them with rocks because the gophers suck them in the ground! I watched in amazement one day while my beautiful snap dragons were sucked in the ground by a gopher. I thought it only happened in cartoons! This next picture is ground cover I have. During spring, the flowers are so full that it looks like a carpet of color! You can tell it is starting to get full of blooms.Thanks for stopping by my blog on Bloomin' Tuesday. Don't forget to visit Jean at Ms Green Thumb Jean's blog for other Bloomin' Tuesday participants!

Dear Anne,

I love your flowers! Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blog, I'm linked up to you now, and I'll follow. Oh how I long to see the flowers in bloom, but here in KY we're still fighting frost, snow and ice. Not as bad as northern states, but I'M READY for Spring!!! It's funny you mention Green Acres cause I live in Green County, a small little county in central Kentucky. God bless you, and I look forward to your friendship!!
