Bloomers

Flower bloomers not pantie type bloomers.   Do you remember when your Grandmother called panties bloomers?
 The Trillium are blooming as is the Large-Flowered Bellwort (the yellow flower).

At the edge of the yard the Thorn-apple or Hawthorn is blooming.

Can you see the thorns? I give this shrub a little more space than normal when I mow.

I have mowed twice since the rains began.  We are out of the drought.  We are thankful for the rain we have received.  Twice as much rain as normal for the month.  We have six inches so far this month and three would be normal.

If it isn't one thing it is another.  Windows Live Writer is not working and that is the software I use to write my blog.  It is a Google/Blogger problem, they updated an API ..or some such thing and locked us all out.  They are supposed to be fixing it.

  2. Our trillium are all bloomed and gone here at sea level. I'm hoping a few will still be there when we go to the High Country today. Blogger certainly has been ornery lately. :-(

  3. So nice to hear them say we are out of the drought in Texas, and there is actually water back in some of those almost dry lakes. Hope all works out with the blogging software...I don't use. it.

  4. I bought and planted trillium once. It bloomed once and disappeared. I do remember bloomers. When I was very young bloomers were called 'step ins'.

  5. Gorgeous but OUCH if you get too close is right! I wish I would have had grandparents but they were all dead by the time I was born. My mother was the baby in the family and she didn't have me until she was 34. I would have learned so much from them but I still think they had a big influence on me and maybe someday I'll get to meet them in the great beyond.
    The "baby" is crying/mewing so I best get out there with some food! LOL!

  9. Yes! Remember when all the girls had to wear dresses to school? And on windy days...little boys would chant on the playground--"I can see your bloomers!"
    Good luck with Blogger/Google. Seems like a lot of glitches lately.

  11. Yes, I well remember wearing bloomers (born in 1929). They had elastic at the waist and on each leg. I sure preferred them to the women's panties available today.

  12. They are very large thorns. I remember as a kid always running into something with thorns as I would walk the cow paths in the timber. We have no more wild flowers in our ditches of our roads. Queen Anne's lace I guess does show up but everything is mowed early and often anymore.

  14. Those thorns look like they would HURT! I'd give them some space too. We're expecting rain again.

  15. Such pretty trillium. My great aunts called their underwear "bloomers," which I thought was a hilarious name when I was a kid. It would send my sister and me into fits of laughter every time!

  16. Spring can take a long time to come but once it's ready it comes quickly. I'll stay out of the bloomers talk!
