Spring is my favorite season. Here are a few pictures from our yard. The first set is from a few weeks ago. The bloodroot was blooming alongside the grape hyacinth. The Lenten Rose was beautiful. Daffodils were blooming all over the garden. Poet’s daffodils are some of our end-of-the-season daffs. Snow White kept coming in […]

weekend garden

On Saturday, DH and I took a turn around the yard. There is a lot of spring out there! Lots of daffodils. DH picked a big bouquet of the larger daffodils for church on Sunday and he also picked a small bouquet of the tiny Tete-a-Tete daffodils. Little patches of spring moss are popping up. […]

a visit from family and a visit to the garden

Yesterday, my Dad, my sister and my brother-in-law came for the afternoon. They live about two hours due north of us. DH and my BIL went on a 22 mile bicycle ride. My Dad, my sister and I had a nice afternoon just visiting, catching up on news, and enjoying each other’s company. I’m so […]

a busy day turned into a lazy day

Hello, friends! I hope you are having a good weekend. Today turned out to be warm and humid, but it was beautiful this morning. We had planned to have a dinner party this evening, but the guest of honor is ill and had to postpone. We are praying he and his family recover and are […]


The front yard is in the height of daylily season. If you are local, feel free to come by and look around. We will be open for another plant sale tomorrow, Saturday. High for the day is forecast as 68*. Unbelievable for July. Most years, DH is digging plants for the sale in 90+ temperatures. […]

daylilies…they’re not just orange or yellow

I have lost track of the number of people who have walked through our garden and then said, “I thought daylilies only came in orange or yellow!” Here’s proof they come in many colors… Let’s start with a beautiful white one with a lovely green throat. ‘Gentle Shepherd’ ‘Jungle Beauty’ is one of my favorite […]

in the garden…new daylilies every day

This is a beautiful time of the year in our garden, notwithstanding the summer heat. The daylilies are blooming profusely. The breeze sends their sweet scent across the garden. This evening was a beautiful time to be outside. The heat had let up a bit, the evening was long, and the bugs were not bothersome. […]

the garden this week

First, I have to say…I AM SO GLAD TO HAVE MY LAPTOP BACK!!! Many thanks to DH for putting in the new keyboard which seems to have fixed all the problems. Now I can resume blog posting with ease. Here are a few pictures from the garden. We go out after DH gets home work […]

spring garden

The garden is so pretty in the spring. Breezy days at just the right temperatures. Showers to keep everything watered and lushly growing. I do love spring. Here are a few pictures taken during the past week or two. There’s a lot of purple going on. Geranium ‘Johnson’s Blue’ We have two of these. I […]

spring in the back yard

These pictures were taken in our back yard on Sunday, April 24. The garden changes so quickly this time of year. The Spanish Bluebells were here when we bought this house in 1994. Virginia Bluebells and Hosta ‘Janet’ Spring Beauties are one of my favorite spring flowers. The flowers open up on sunny days, and […]
