Chicken and Broccoli Risotto; spring — 10 Comments

  1. They don’t look like pinks to me ie Dianthus. They look like pink oxalis. But who knows what they are called in American English. I’ve only just discovered that Americans seem to call the deciduous magnolias native to Asia ‘tulip trees’. A tulip tree is something completely different as far as I’m concerned.

    • I think the are oxalis. Sadly, much as I love flowers I rarely know what they are called. My hubs takes care of the flowers here. If I can’t eat it I don’t plant it lol

  2. I’m so jealous of you with that wisteria! It’s gorgeous! My peonies are just starting to break ground. And while they grow really well where they’re placed, my rhubarb hasn’t yet. Once it does, it will be unstoppable though. Other than that, I’ve seen my jonquils but that’s about it. It’s 52 right now, at about 5pm. We’re supposed to have 3-5 inches of snow overnight. I still haven’t cleaned the beds out. Hopefully next weekend though.

    • I have never had luck with rhubarb and I don’t know why. Everyone says it’s so easy to grow – throw it at the ground and you’re done! Must be our heavy clay. Or my brown thumb. My peonies have lots of buds this year. If someone doesn’t clip them with the mower again….
