Spring Cleaning in the Yard

There is always lots of spring cleaning to be done in the yard.....mostly leaves from the trees and dried plant stems.  

  H is going to  put a garden in the area next to the yellow building  (seasonal decor is stored there!)  You can see he has the tiller out.   You can't see it in this photo but there is an identical  yellow building to the left of the one you can see.....H has his tools in that one.
I was surprised to see how many plants were in bloom already.

 Behind the green house is a big snowball bush.....

There's a smaller snowball bush against the fence and if you look close....another one behind the bicycle.

This snowball bush next to the fireplace was pruned back last had got way too big.

I snapped some photo's as we were cleaning the flower beds.....

H has a big sunflower head from last year in the wagon,  .   He plants the seeds along the fence to the side of the studio.

This is the side yard with a path that leads to the front yard.....

On the other side of the path that leads to the front yard is a magnolia tree that we planted last has a few blooms on it this year!

See how the beds are full of leaves!

Do we have plants in the greens house yet?

Glad you asked...yes we!

 I'll do a post on the inside of the greenhouse soon!


  1. Oh how I love a Spring garden and I spied your sweet bleeding heart:)
    Thank you for sharing your pretty joy with us at TOHOT-we appreciate you being here with us so much.
    Also, we would love for you to join us on Monday when we have our garden party link up.

  2. Penny,
    I am always totally amazed at how larger your yard is and of all the "buildings" that you have in it!! Nice to see flowers in bloom there. Even though we have had higher than usual temps. for the last 6 months, April has been a colder than usual month!! But we have had some days in the 70's ( always some days were it went down in the 30's) so some of the Spring blooming tress and what not are ahead of schedule! I have not even started doing anything outside as I just finished packing away all the Easter decorations. Since Easter was so early, I wanted to leave them out for awhile......
