Hello Everyone,

Finally, I can say that spring has arrived right here in my own yard!! Excitement fills me, because you know what that means... summer is around the corner, my favorite season.

I thought that I would take you for a little walk around the yard to show you all the wonderful delights.

Daffodils just began blooming. I love yellow!

Ginger surrounds the trunk of my flowering plum tree.

This is the first year I have ever seen my vinca blooming like this. Just glorious!

My flowering plum with the beautiful pink buds coming to life.

Ooops... who is that? My Pavi watching me taking photos. If you click on the photo, you can see Beanie in the background also looking at me.

One variety of Hellebores, a beautiful eggplant color.

My white Hellebores. Still some leaves around that need to be cleared, but we are working on that... soon.

Little purple flowers in my lawn. Very sweet, but I don't know what they are called. Do any of you? They seem to be growing wild.

My Star Magnolia, very fragrant. We have two!

Look... even my lilacs are budding!! I have three different varieties of lilacs and they all bloom at slightly different times.

Goodness... what on earth is this? Does anyone have a husband that is just a little over zealous when trimming and pruning? I do. This is supposed to be a Japanese Maple. It must have been severely damaged this winter, so he decided to cut it down to a nub. Wonder if it will come back?

Love these daffodils.

My beautiful azaleas are in full bloom. Gorgeous display of color. The only thing I forgot to take a photo of is my weeping cherry tree. But I can vouch that it is just gorgeous!

Thanks for coming along for the tour!

Until Next Time...
