    We have lilies starting to bloom now, and the amaryllis in the front yard finally opened up both of its buds this morning. It was planted last year, and overwintered. I like to get them after the Christmas season when they are on closeout, and then after they bloom, I can save them and plant them outside and they will continue to blossom every year, and sometimes twice a year after that.
    The bad part is that we have moved a lot, and when it was a time of year that the bulbs weren't showing up, I could never find those kinds of plants to move them, and then I had to start over again at the new place.
    The blackberries have a few berriess on them this year; and the plants are starting to spread. Hopefully, we will have even more blackberries next year.
    The blueberries didn't even blossom yet, and it seems like they should have done that by now, but again, the bushes are growing, so that is a plus.
    The poor little rhubarb gave up again, and i think that it is just done for. I would have gotten one and kept it in a pot; but Lowes didnn't have either rhubarb or raspberries when we went there today.
    There are a few peaches on the peach trees, and it looked like lemons starting on the lemon tree.
    The fig tree is putting out new leaves and growing like crazy; so this year it should be able to winter outside, hopefully.

    Those are so luscious looking! In what state do you live? In my area of Texas, i don't think that i could raise those particular flowers even in the shade. You are so fortunate! Such beautiful colors.
