One good thing about a dog who has to be walked on a leash is that you get out and about several times a day. This gives you the opportunity to get some fresh air and see what is blooming in the yard. In our front entry area there are a few narcissus, real sweet.We have creeping myrtle all over the place here.. sweet flowers.
This shrub has pretty fragrant white flowers each spring -- I'm not sure what it is but it grows like a weed and I've hacked at them a lot. Do you know what it is? The leaves look like a rhododendron.
More photos of my dear star magnolia.
Gorgeous with a faint sweet aroma.
The dandelions are happy that Dayle hasn't mowed for a while. :-)
Here is my Japanese Rose or Kerria Rose.. which is naughty as it's infiltrated my huge magnificent magenta rhododendron. But the flowers are cute.
Any day now our place will be a rhododendron delight.
I'm standing at the base of this pinky one on the left and the king of all rhodies, the magenta one, on the right - it soars almost 30 feet tall!
At the base of my very old and big lilac is some silver dollar wildflowers. It's neat as the flowers are pretty and when it dries you are left with some very pretty dried flowers that look like silver dollars.
Here is our row of roses that our son removed at his house and planted here on the farm. They are real survivors.. I can't wait until they bloom. As you can see, we have a wild, wild, wild garden.. it's not manicured, it's not fussed over.. but we enjoy it.
So.. how does YOUR garden grow? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
