Puttering in the Yard (with my camera)

Finished clearing out the last overgrown flower bed today.  Who knew there were lily of the valley and iris under all those pine needles and dead leaves!?  Puttering around the yard with Matt in the early morning hours before work is a fabulous way to start the day.  I hope your day is finding you well.
Bleeding hearts make me think of my mother.   We had them at my childhood home.
 
Multiple colors makes this grouping of tulips all the more delightful if you ask me.  Pink, orange, fuchsia, yellow, white.
 
 
The hints of lavender inside this delicately pink tulip was a stunning highlight.
Remember the heart shaped nut I found a few weeks ago?  I re-examined it and found the heart had been all eaten out (yes, yes, eat your heart out!).  Now it looks a bit like a bear nose I think.  Update:  It is a Black Walnut.

  1. It still looks like a heart. Okay, I tried hard and I see the bear nose, even though I have never seen a bear nose.

  2. Love the flowers, those tulips are especially pretty. I have been putting in daffodil bulbs as it is planting time for them here in NZ. But now I'm wishing I had some tulip bulbs too!

    1. See and I was thinking I needed some daffodils because I have tulips and no daffodils! : )

  3. Really like the tulip shot from directly above, makes a neat perspective. And I didn't see the heart nut the first time, but it definitely looks like a snout to me, possibly from a pig or boar?

    1. I thought pig too, but it seemed too pointy.
