The Villages Florida Area Real Estate: May Day in Connecticut

May Day in Connecticut

May Day in Connecticut

I took some photos of flowers around my house today because I am so happy to see things blooming again, and when I sat down to post some, I couldn't think of a thing to write.  Then I realized that it was May Day, and flowers just go with that naturally!  Growing up May Day always meant a bouquet of violets for my mother as we were not allowed to pick the daffodils or tulips.  So here are my collection of flowers taken on May Day 2011--I didn't pick any of them!

Chris... I guess we both came up with the same idea for today.  Maybe it has to do with being in Connecticut.. and finally seeing color.  Happy May Day to you too.

Well Chris you and Valerie had the right idea for May Day and all the flowers are beautiful.  I had never seen white bleeding hearts before, alway just the red ones.

Hi Sue - I think I have three varieties of bleeding hearts in my yard--all from my mother-in-law's house (lots of digging went on before we sold the estate).  Plus I just found out that Dutchman's Breeches are in the same family (I post a photo of them two or three days ago--also from my wife's parent's home).

Chris, it was definitely a day to take photos. I posted rhodos photos today.

Excellent flower photos Chris-such perfect resolution. I don't think we can grow bleeding hearts here in AZ-it's nice to see them again.

Hi Ted - Thanks.  I checked out your rhodos and they are great.  Mine won't bloom for a while yet.

Hi Beth - Ah, but Arizona has so many other wonderful things to offer!!

Good Morning Rob - Thanks for stopping by.  Yes, we are enjoying everything that pokes through the ground this spring now that winter seems to be over.

Maybe I should post some cactus flowers. Unfortunately we had a rare hard freeze this winter that killed my favorite cactus-it has blooms the size of a salad plate that come in white or a gorgeous fuschia (my persona favorite). Though I probably have a photo from last year.

Posted by Beth Larsen, Sedona Arizona (RE/MAX Sedona) over 7 years ago

Hi Beth - Post last year's photo!  I personally think cactus flowers are really cool.

I'll be watching for your May flowers pictures.

 Blooming for home buyers!

Posted by Roy Kelley, Roy and Dolores Kelley Photographs (Realty Group Referrals) over 7 years ago

Hi Roy - They will be coming!

Posted by Chris Canfield, Homes for Sale in Oro Valley and Tucson, Arizona (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Chris,

I share your joy in seeing flowers on the ground instead of piles of snow. What a lovely post and such an amazing garden you have! I'm glad they stayed hidden underground during that cold, long winter and now they have emerged, poking their beautiful faces to look up at you and give you joy!

Stay joyful - rejoice and be glad!

Happy May days with many more flowers to come!

Patricia

P.S. How's the roof?

Posted by Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) over 7 years ago

Hi Patricia - the roof is fine and snow free!  Most of the plants are doing quite well, but the grass in the back yard had a tough time.  : )
