This Azalea was planted last year and this year it was full of blooms.
Thanks to Jonathan Putman for asking me what his Tree Peony was, I am also the owner of one. It doubled in size and blossomed for the first time this spring. Although this picture does not do it justice, it is a beautiful blossom and love the foliage.
Today I was truly blessed with a combination Birthday and Mother’s Day dinner, cake, cards, more beautiful flowers and a stand to keep my computer off from my lap. The grandchildren love Birthday parties, so they could hardly wait for the cake, even Abby who is “2″ as she proudly will tell you, was saying “cake”! Lily is singing scripture verses and counting by 10′s to a hundred. She is now in a booster seat and has taken to the back seat. Will made a picture for his Mom and me in Sunday school this morning with balloons. : )
Thank you Scott & Nina and family for the beautiful flowers!
We are working on the front lawn getting it ready for putting down mulch. This was todays project.
I had a dear neighbor who shared flowers from her garden with me, then we moved. I thought about them each year, but hadn’t found any until this year. While at a local nursery this last week, I saw them. Now I have a clump of the Snowdrops in my woodland garden.
I am now on a hunt for some Anemones – Grecian Windflowers ( White Star) which I saw while at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens recently.
I like the foliage on both of these plants. It reminds me of the foliage on the geraniums that I have.
The walls are painted and the lights and fan are installed. We are making progress.
