Silly flowers


Daffy-down dilly came to town
In a yellow petticoat
And a green gown.

(Random nursery rhyme that my mom taught me.) Anyway, I planted these in the little flower bed next to our front door. These two flowers amuse me because they didn't bloom facing the sun like most flowers. Nope, they're facing the side of the house. It's not showing in this picture, but normally the sun reflects off the siding very brightly, so I guess it makes sense to the flowers. They get more light off the side of the house, but it makes it difficult for me to see them and enjoy them. May need to cut them and put them in a vase in the house.

My kids favorite nursery rhyme..."we gave you a chance to water the plants we didn't mean this way now zip up your pants." Shel Silverstein Figures my kids would have a favorite like that seeing as my husband likes to use the restroom outside. Of course my mother is the one who taught them that particular nursery rhyme. Spring looks like it's on its way up there!

Good for you that you have flowers!! I'll have to remember for next year that daffodils come up earlier than tulips.
