Our Yard in April

Well,  it is May ---but I have more April yard posts to share... Spring is busting out all over around here ---so I just "HAVE" to share!!!! ha... Hope you enjoy my post today... Above is a photo of our front yard looking toward the road from the house. All of these posts were taken during APRIL.




And this is just the opposite:  standing in the road looking toward the house! 




This is the lower side of our yard... You can see some Forsythia in the background...




Here is another photo of our Red Dynasty Tulips.. They have been so pretty.




And here is a picture of our  Purissima Tulips --with some Periwinkle (Minor Vinca) blooming in the background.




This beautiful tulip is named All that Jazz.




Our Hosta is really popping up in most all of the places I have it planted in the yard.  Hosta seems to do well when it's shared with Periwinkle....  I'm not sure it will do that well sharing with the English Ivy.... The Ivy seems to take over --more than the Periwinkle does!




This shows Dad Adams' Daffodils blooming like crazy FINALLY.   They bloomed like this in March in 2012 instead of April.  Everything is about a month behind...




This little tulip is named First Cherry Blossom.  It is a beautiful  pink and white in color.




Here is another pretty little Daffodil... We have several which are 'different' from many Daffodils in people's yards these days.




This pretty tulip is named  Halley's Comet..




We have several of these little yellow tulips in our yard... Her name is Sun Gold.




Finally,  here's one more picture  showing more of our tulips and daffodils which are dotted throughout the yard.. 

Hope you enjoyed seeing more of our spring flowers... We love tulips --and have really enjoyed them this year.

Hope you have a wonderful week.  I will see you on Monday, May 13!  I'm taking another week off to do other things!!!! 
Hugs,

Arkansas Patti said...

Wow, you and your gardener have outdone yourselves. I do hope you don't get the cold snap we are having. Low thirties for tonight. I fear for my buds.
Have a good break.

yellow is my favorite flower color, and I love this yellow tulip, but that said the photo of the pink and white is just awesome, beautiful flower and the photo is perfect

HolleyGarden said...

Have a great week off! Love your tulips, but I am enamored of the photo with the hostas and periwinkle together. Just beautiful. You are inspiring me, Betsy!

Janice K said...

Your yard is absolutely "picture perfect." You and George both certainly have "green thumbs."

MTWaggin said...

You have such a lovely yard. Right now I'm just trying to keep things alive! I see buds on my daffs (first ones I've ever had) and have some hyacinths blooming so I am happy.

Sylvia K said...

Your flowers are so colorful and so gorgeous, Betsy! Your photos today really took my breath away!! Such a wonderful variety and glorious colors! There are definitely "green thumbs" living at your house!! Thanks for sharing the beauty!! Have a lovely weekend!

Spring has definitely come to your house! The tulips, daffodils, periwinkle, and forsythia are just eye-popping gorgeous. Hope you have a wonderful "other things" week.

Ginny said...

LOVE this unusual daffodil! And the white tulip with the blue background, and the yellow tulip. Your header of the beautiful rose with one water drop is fantastic!

Susannah said...

Hi Betsey, Your tulips are grorgeous. I love tulips and have planted quite a few here ....but it seems they bloom for about two years and then they just keep burying themselves deeper and deeper and we only get the leaves. Do you dig them up and replant them or buy new every year?

Susannah

You two must have done lots of work in your garden to get such a beautiful Spring display. Well done. I like Dad Adam's daffodils the best.

Rose ~ from Oz said...

Ah Betsy, Spring really has sprung at 148 at last!! What a colourful world at your place! Beautiful.

Chris Rohrer said...

All the flowers are growing so nicely!!! Gorgeous planters around your yard. I like how you have those sections separated. It makes for any easier planting with a theme in mind. Beautiful!

Lynda said...

I LOVE the rose in your header. It is truly gorgeous! Your yard - - - I would just have to sit outside and stare at it in wonder at the beauty all day - - - but then it wouldn't be that beautiful if a person just sit and stared at it - - right? Thanks again for sharing!

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Betsy, Makes me homesick for the Glade. I do like my new digs here in FL. We don't have a lot of flowers here - just a lot of green. Your yard is beautiful and you and your hubby must be proud of your hard work. Have a joy-filled weekend!

Busy Bee Suz said...

Holy Mackeral! Your yard is just bursting with color. I LOVE IT!!!!
Enjoy your break.
XOXOX

Neal said...

Beautiful shots Betsy. You guys sure do have a beautiful yard.

Karin said...

You should make a series of postcards and sell them! These look fabulous! A real treat seeing that our snow is just now leaving and no flowers are up yet.

Retired English Teacher said...

Everything looks so beautiful in your yard. I bet your neighbors are happy to live near you. What a treat it must be to drive by and see all your flowers.

I am really, really struggling because we have nothing, I mean nothing, blooming around here. The deer eat everything, and so people just don't bother to even plant. I hate it.

Pat Tillett said...

Wow! So beautiful Betsy! The colors of some of those tulips are amazing. Once spring hits, things sure change there in a hurry.

Kalyan P said...

Simply beautiful colours...lovely!

ladyfi said...

What wonderfully delicious photos of spring. It's here at last!!

Lady Di Tn said...

Your part of TN sure is beautiful with all the lovely blooms. I would cut back the Ivy or it will take over. Peace

Dee said...

Dear Betsy, all the flowers are truly lovely, but that forsythia simply took my breath away! Have a good week and enjoy your life! Peace.

Debbie Taillieu said...

The tulips are fascinating! I liked the yellow and red a lot... It’s good to see your yard blooms again! Lovely photos Betsy :) Have a nice time

troutbirder said...

amy @ Life in Pink Hi-Tops said...

Your yard is gorgeous! I love tulips. We planted some but I think the squirrels dug them up and ate them--they just disappeared.

Marie said...

Such a lovely array of tulips and narcissus...I love that apricot-colored one. It reminds me of an Easter dress I had as a child. Gorgeous yard!

Betty Manousos said...

Ginny said...

O.K. you need to charge admission! LOVE the pretty little peach colored daffodil!

Ramakant Pradhan said...

Lovely pictures and you do have a beautiful yard. So much flowers, its amazing. If I wanted to capture or even see so many flowers, I will have to visit the nearest public garden.

Beatriz said...

Dear Betsy!

Your yard is something like paradise! All those kind of flowers, it seems impossible to be all together in the same place, that incredible!!!! You must have hands of gold to do so.

Congratulations from Brazil!

Love your tulips Betsy. I think, not only the beauty of the color, but the name of the tulip..."All that Jazz" is my favorite.

Love the landscaping as well.
