You have a lot of lovely inside flowers in spite of the weather ups and downs!

Linda Brazill

BARBARA — They are a good way to note what is blooming despite the snow and cold.

Kris P

Wow, you managed a lot of beautiful arrangements despite your horrid weather flips, Linda. I love the arrangement in the blue and white "brick" vase - the wayward fritillaries make that arrangement something special.

Linda Brazill

KRIS — Thanks. It's the first time I've grown these Frits and I am enjoying them. And the fact that nobody's eaten them in the garden.

Your garden is picturesque in the snow. Your visitors must delight in all the lovely vases around the house as well as the gorgeous containers and other artwork. Have a good week.


I am sorry about your peonies. This makes me realize that our uva vulpis must have bloomed while we were in Greece, because I didn't see a single one this year, though the foliage is there. Thankfully we caught the last few days of our meleagris. The color of that trillium is stunning. I only have yellow, and may need to do some shopping!

Those are just lovely, put together with your artistic eye.


I’m feeling a lot of nostalgia reading your post about April snow in Wisconsin. Of course, I have the benefit of having just gone through an unseasonably warm 80F day in western Oregon. I’m curious about the blackberry-looking fruit in the vase with the muscari. I’ve have a feeling your peonies are fine and will open when the warm weather returns.

Linda Brazill

SUSIE Thank you for those kind comments. Whether there's company or not, I tend to make a lot of bouquets when the first flowers appear. 

Linda Brazill

KRISTIN — I have a couple of different red Trilliums and am trying to get another one to get large enough to flower.

Linda Brazill

JERRY — The blackberry looking fruit is a leftover seed pod of "blackberry" lily aka Belcamda. I clipped most of the seed pods off last fall and discovered this one as I was cleaning up the garden this spring.
