We are so excited to have flowers in the back yard!  I have wanted a cutting garden of my own since I worked designing wedding bouquets years ago.  Our garden is just starting out this spring, but we were able to do a bit of cutting from the bulbs we planted in the fall.  I am in love with these checkered Fritillaria and the Hyacinth and Daffodils smell wonderful.  We purchased our bulbs from White Flower Farm in Connecticut and the resulting plants have been strong and vibrant.  We are trying to stick to a blue/purple/white/cream color palette.  Although this scheme has morphed a bit as Chris recently purchased some giant yellow sunflower seeds, some of the tulip colors are slightly different than the catalog image, and Chris’ parents are giving us some beautiful pink peonies from their yard.  We are looking forward to figuring out the flowering schedule and filling in with new plants every season.  This is what has come up and bloomed in the garden so far:

*Narcissus Cheerfulness

*Narcissus Manly (Huge blooms!)

*Fritillaria Persica Adiyaman

*Fritillaria Meleagris (I love this!)

*Hyacinth Blue Eyes

*Hyacinth Miss Saigon (These smell wonderful)

*Tulip Backpacker

*Tulip Champagne Diamond (So beautiful!)

Happy Spring!
