George and I love to 'walk the yard' most every morning --taking pictures of new flowers/growth. SO--I put together a group to share with you today. These pictures were all taken on various days in our yard beginning on April 5 and concluding with May 4, 2014. Hope you enjoy them! Be sure to click on them for enlargements.
|White Dogwood bloom; (I made a huge deal in an earlier blog about our pretty Pink Dogwood --but hadn't shown off the white ones yet!)|
|Taken from the road--looking toward one of our redbuds and our big white dogwood (See my Sweetie working hard???)|
|Here's a very pretty and interesting TULIP... Any idea what its name it????|
|PEPPERMINT STICK TULIP (perfect name, isn't it?)|
|Wild VIOLETS in our Yard (We don't have many--but they are pretty though when they bloom.)|
|Another photo showing off our big REDBUD while it was in bloom; You can also see Tulips and Daffodils in bloom then---AND George is starting to put his container Roses along the driveway.|
|Looking UP the street --showing off the beautiful White Dogwoods|
|Beautiful PHLOX in our big side rock bed!|
|FIRST CHERRY BLOSSOM TULIP (I will have an entire blog post showing off our Tulips--like I did the Daffodils, but haven't put it together yet.)|
|One of the 6 AZALEA bushes in our backyard |
|Another of our Backyard AZALEAS; I love this color!|
|One of many HOSTAS in our yard; I especially like this one --although I love them all.|
|Our first blooming IRIS this year, named Honey Glaze; I'm sure I'll have a blog post showing off all of our Irises --once they bloom. |
|JUST the BEGINNING of our beautiful RHODODENDRON; Once the blooms all open, this one will be gorgeous --and I WILL share more photos!|
These next four photos show our HOME during various dates this past month... Amazing all of the differences---and the best thing is that not everything blooms all at the same time, so we can enjoy our flowers throughout Spring ---and Summer and even into Fall.
|APRIL 5-- Only things blooming then were lots of Daffodils, Crocuses, and Hyacinths|
|APRIL 10---Daffodils blooming --and Tulips beginning to bloom|
|APRIL 17 --Big Changes!!! Redbuds (on right) and Pink Dogwood (left) blooming and a few leaves popping out on our big trees!!!!|
|MAY 3---LEAVES on BIG Trees--and lots of growth from our Roses; Pansies and Irises blooming now!|
Amazing, isn't it??? Spring is just SO awesome!!!! Now --while waiting on more Irises to bloom and more Azaleas and our Rhododendron, we are also waiting on Lilies and Daylilies and of course, our beautiful Roses!!!!!! SO--I'm sure you'll get to see many more photos from our yard!
My surgery is OVER --and I did well... Had it by the laparoscopic method --so I was HOME by 2:00 pm (after getting to the hospital at 6:15 am).... I am sore (to be expected) and will take it easy for awhile---but things went well--so I'm not complaining. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
Have a FANTASTIC and BLESSED weekend.
