garden pics

I took these shots to share on Tuesday, but life got hectic for a few days, so am sharing them now. The columbine has come on thick and fast this week. It’s a nice long bloomer and adds color to the beds this time of year. My favorite columbine is the blue one… I thought […]

tuesday blooms

The weather was beautiful yesterday and I was able to get out for some picture taking opportunities. Tete-a-Tete daffodils are sprinkled all over the yard. These are near the back door. In the east yard, the Star Magnolia is beginning to bloom. Looks like a snowstorm doesn’t it? Close-up, the blossoms are ivory colored. When […]

first blossoms of spring

The daffodils have buds, and the crocus are opening. Spring is official. What you don’t see is a picture of me smiling, but rest assured…I am! Visit other gardens and their gardeners at Tootsie Time’s Fertilizer Friday. ~~Rhonda 🙂

slowly but surely

I’m waiting for spring. How about you? It’s coming, but not soon enough for me. The maple trees have been budding for several weeks. Today we had a high of 55* or so. I left the house for the first time in two weeks and took a few pictures around the yard. It looks rather […]

garden pics…can’t stop sharing garden pics…

Such a beautiful time of year in the garden. My kitty Zak, strolling past the hostas. Ants on the peonies… The flags are blooming now. Hosta ‘Minuteman’ grows in the woods. We’ve found most of the hostas prefer more sun than the woods provides, but this one seems to like it here. Hosta ‘Squash Casserole’ […]

sunday bouquet

Today’s bouquet was made from irises, snowball bush blossoms and pink columbine. It didn’t turn out quite the way I wanted it to, but how can you go wrong with such beautiful irises? 🙂 ~~Rhonda

dogwood blossoms

The dogwood trees are beginning to open their buds. We have three dogwoods ready to bloom. One is still in a tight bud, one has blossoms still cupped and and one has blossoms that have opened but haven’t turned white yet. Last year, they had no more than a few flowers. I guess the hard […]

pretty spring day

This afternoon, DH and did a little yard work. That means DH shoveled a lot of mulch and I got to drive the mower, pulling the wagon. The redbud trees are at their peak of perfection right now. The Virginia bluebells look so pretty in the evening sunlight. This was taken from the back yard, […]

just a dusting

We woke up to a little bit of snow this morning. DH took all the photos, except the last one, just before 8:00 a.m. I took the last one just before 10:00 a.m. Front yard… East yard… Fenced garden… The daffodils started the day bowed to the ground. By afternoon, you would never have known […]

saturday yard work

We spent a lot of time outside on Saturday. One of the big jobs was burning the brush pile. With 3.5 acres to groom, we can accumulate a lot of debris over a season. Some goes to the mulch pile, but branches go to the brush pile. I wish I’d taken a picture of it […]
