First Tulip of Spring

First tulip of spring at the Cox household
AND....
The hostas are up.

AND...
When I trimmed back the roses this fall, I didn't bother to pick up what I'd cut off.  Awhile back, I noticed the cuttings were green and leafy, so I stuck this one in the ground. He definitely is a tenacious little fellow and had a different idea about his next cycle of life than I did..

  1. Woo Hoo. Exciting times.
    And the bulbs I have ordered (far too many of them) for our Spring have started to arrive.

  4. Autumn here and the past couple of days the temps have reverted to hot and muggy...but...hopefully, from all reports, tomorrow a cool change is due, with a couple of showers thrown in. That I will like! :)

  7. Isn't it wonderful how Mother Nature "springs" into action when we need new life and color to bring us out of winter's drab grays and bare branches!
    Congratulations on the rebirth at Cox residence 🌷

  8. Happy First Day of Spring! My daffs and tulips are buried with more snow on the way. Is it July, yet?

  9. This is so exciting! I love to see new flowers coming to life. We just have small sprouts peeking out of the earth. Funny, another blogger I follow, Susie Mac, had a beautiful mom that had a gift for gardening. Suzie decided to do what her mom did, take a Rose cutting and just stick it in the ground and a Rose Bush would sprout. She just had another Rose Bush start growing.

    1. Congrats to Suzie. I bet it was a Knock Out Rose. Those suckers are hardy.

  11. I'm definitely ready for spring; it's been a long cold winter. Your pictures made me envious; one of the things I don't like about living in an apartment building is that I can't have my own flower garden.

  12. I am having a terrible week. I can’t stop coughing, my internet keeps going offline, and my keyboard works about half the time.

    LOVE all the greenery at you house. Happy Vernal Equinox, too.

    1. I'm so sorry you're having a bad week, Elizabeth.
      Computer/internet problems are the pits.
      Have you seen a doctor about that cough?

    1. It sure is, Jan:) Are plants popping up in your garden?

    2. Yes, the spring plants are slowly beginning to come through.
      I love this time of year.

      All the best Jan

  16. Oh, you ARE getting life! I'm seeing some early bulb shoots but nothing else yet. Probably a good thing -- we'll certainly have more snow. Jealous of your tulip!

    1. Moe snow. Sigh. There's rumblings of it here too, Jeanie.
