Day 26: What's Blooming?

We moved into our house in late September. Late September in Michigan is just about the time when the air turns crisp and the leaves begin to change their hue.  Behind our house is wooded and many of the trees were changing to yellow, orange and red when we moved in. It was beautiful!

When we looked at our house before purchasing, it was early August.  We walked the yard and saw the landscaping. I noticed a beautiful hydrangea, several small bushes were planted around the deck, and there were several places where deep green ground cover was growing with little purple flowers that were peeking out among the leaves. I appreciated the effort the former owners had put into the landscaping.  It looked nice, fresh, and well cared for.

Now, as spring is arriving, I am wondering what new little treasures we will find. I have already been delighted with the pretty yellow daffodils that are beginning to bloom along the front porch.  (I'm also realizing that we have a bit of raking/leaf blowing to do to get those ugly brown leaves out of there!)



There are two more things that are beginning to come up and some even starting to blossom.

I think this one is a crocus, but I'm not sure.



I don't know yet what this one will be:


We will just have to wait and see!  It's fun to watch new life unfold around our house.  There are some unexpected things popping up here and there, and I'm waiting not so patiently for the hydrangea to bloom!

Once we see what we have, then we can make a plan to add what we want to make it our own.  I'm thinking maybe some tulips are in order somewhere!  I guess we will just have to wait and see what the rest of the spring brings to us.
