Spring is a Beautiful Time of Year

I've featured many of our favorite Spring flowers so far (Crocus, Daffodils, Tulips, Irises, Azaleas, etc.). And now---our Roses are blooming and SO beautiful . AND--the Lilies are beginning to bloom now also. BUT---today I want to share a few more of the beautiful colors in our yard which we have enjoyed this spring. Above is a side view (from below the deck) of our big Rhododendron. Below are more Spring beauties!

This is one of two other Rhododendrons (the large one was already here) we planted in the yard after moving here in 2003. They are both growing fast --considering how small they were when we planted them!

These pansies are among several in our yard which made it through the horribly cold winter this past year. They continue to bloom and grow ---and should be pretty until it gets too hot for them --about July.

This is one of several blooms from our Mountain Laurel bush in our yard. Aren't these little blooms just gorgeous?

This is a macro of one of the sweet little blooms on my new Fushia hanging basket that my son gave me for Mother's Day. The blooms are incredible!

Finally, this is a macro of one of the Verbena blooms. Aren't the little pink flowers just so pretty?

Thanks for stopping by. I have an appointment with the Orthopedic Surgeon today. My knee has gotten worse and worse --and now I cannot put any weight on it. Say a little prayer, or send some good thoughts my way PLEASE. I will try to catch up on your blogs when I am feeling better.
