The Colour Of Spring

The Colour Of Spring was Talk Talk’s third album. Released in 1985, it was a departure from the group’s early synthesized pop music. To this day, the album remains one of my favorites.

Here are a few pics of the colour of spring in my garden:

Saved From An Icy Death

I cut these tulips yesterday afternoon. I saved them from any icy death. Their comrades are now buried under many inches of snow. I gave a big bouquet of tulips to Tom and Sheila. I also have a bunch of grape hyacinths in vase. I’ll get to see who survived on Monday when the temperature rises to the high forties.

Here’s a picture of a bee on a crocus in my yard which is completely unrelated to rest of this post. It seems a little early for the bees to be out. I’m not an entomologist so I could be wrong.

Sun To Snow

I mowed the yard on Sunday afternoon for the first time this year. The grass had greened up and had grown long enough to mow, in Denver, in February. I also have chives in the herb garden that survived the winter. My area is usually a hard frost zone. Then it snowed last night. Of course, there’s no such thing as global warming.
