Tiptoe through the garden (the tulips have finished)

The Shirley poopies weren't out last time but this morning, they are.
The colours are so lovely - many are bi colours.
This epiphyllum (orchid cactus) has been with me for years. It lives outdoors all year round, even in the frost. This year it has 4 buds, so the snow hasn't bothered it either.
These day lilies have settled in well - they were only planted a year ago.

Wow! That's a gorgeous Epyphillum. My previous husband (now deceased) used to collect cacti and we had some amazing flowers too, some the size of dinner plates. I just have a 'Christmas' Cactus now. Maybe I should give that a go outside if the winter's not too cold?

I am so envious! Your garden is gorgeous. I can't grow flowers like that in the desert. Just a beautiful garden.
