Welcome to Week 13 of The Blooms
When I got back to Vancouver last week I was so excited to see the bulbs and corms I planted last fall starting to bloom.
In the 3 weeks I was gone, I missed picking all my daffodils which were nearly all weather beaten, but I now have my own tulips, my own anemones (be it just a few!), and this weeks little treasures, fritillaries, which, for some reason, I was so proud to see! Maybe because I have never grown them before. Or maybe because they are just a little bit different with their nodding heads, curving stems and unique checkered pattern. Either way here they are in an old fashioned ink bottle I picked up at a vintage collectors shop while I was in the UK.
