Life is all about choices and attitude. Make the right choices, keep a positive attitude-- and you will find JOY through all of your ups and downs. Hope you enjoy my thoughts!
My JOYFUL REFLECTIONS header picture is a picture taken on 10/20/16 on our visit to the Biltmore House and Gardens in Asheville, North Carolina. I had never seen so many different colors of Poinsettias before... These HOT Pink ones were gorgeous.

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!!!!
