Hello my friends! Thanks for stopping by. Would you like to join me in a walkabout in the yard to see what's blooming? Ok! First up is our Bleeding Heart is looking lovely.
And the White Lilac is in full and fragrant bloom!
The white Azalea is starting to open too.
Kristi gave me this white Hosta a few years ago - it opens up white and slowly darkens to green. Isn't it cool?
The other Hostas are shooting up and opening.. a favorite garden plant of mine, we have several.
And ta-dah! My annual bouquet of Lilacs in 2 shades of lavender, dark purple and white! The house smells wonderful!
This is the top of our old HUGE lilac bush. It's about 20 feet tall and big.
This is our first Rhododendron to bloom each year.
And our Rose Bud Azalea is just starting to flower out. Such a pretty flower.
This is a funny thing.. we have ONE Bluebell. It has not spread, each year we only have this one. :-)
I have a patch of Coral Bells in a small water trough. They are so dependable!
One of the Wind Flowers or AKA Anemones that Kristi planted in pots. Pretty!
This is an Apple blossom on a tree that Kristi got, too.
There was a Lily-of-the-Valley in bloom under the Daphne - I had planned to pick it and bring it in.. the ones out front aren't open yet.. yesterday afternoon Caleb came in and told me he'd picked a flower for me.. he proudly showed me in his hand.. I smiled. Kept smiling. And smiled while he went back outside. LOL! I'm still smiling. :-)
Kristi took a photo of this plant she'd never seen and asked me what it was and luckily I knew.. I said.. "That's a Stinky BOB!" LOL.. she said.. "What???" I repeated.. she couldn't wait to go outside and tell the boys what it's name was.
Well, time to pack my swim bag and head off early to my Daughters of the American Revolution meeting and then off to swim. I hope you have a wonderful day!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
