Spring Ring

Last October I spent the better part of a day creating this lovely tree ring. The spring has arrived and I love the results! I wish it had been a bit sunnier today when I took this picture, but I love the profusion of flowers. The darker tulips haven't blossomed yet, but when they do, they'll stand out beautifully.

Unfortunately, I have noticed a few snips. Too clean of a cut to be from a squirrel, someone is cutting my flowers! That frustrates me to no end. Please enjoy my blooms, but leave them where they are so everyone can benefit. I've caught kids doing it before and asked them very nicely never to do it again. It drives me crazy. Does this happen to anyone else?

whoever the culprit is, they are getting some nice flowers and they better make sure they never get caught...or else face they will have to face the flower lady...

Very pretty flowers!!!

someone is STEALING your flowers?! seriously?! weird... I would be mad, too. the only thieves in cascade are the deer - they eat anything that has a bloom (our newly planted maple tree included).

although they are beau-OOOO-tiful! i promise it is not me! although now that i think about it, i am a little tempted to cut one of your tulips & stick it in one of my pots... where my own tulips are STILL not really growing... :)

Good to know, Beth... :) I should have given you some of mine from my backyard to stick in there.

Yeah, Heather, I am thankful that I only have to combat the squirrels and no deer!

Jean, I totally wish I could sit on the porch all day and watch! Give those kids the ol' what-for!

Ooo, it's so beautiful! My tulips were about four inches high last weekend when we had our freak snowstorm. Now, I'm not sure if my tulips and irises are even going to grow any more, let alone bloom. *pout, pout*

I waited all year last year for my sunflowers to bloom, and they did right before Halloween. I'm pretty sure someone stole the flower heads as retribution for not participating in the holiday, but I can't prove anything.
