I took my camera with me this morning when I did my "walk around" to see what was blooming.
The first flower bed I looked at was the one on the back side of the house.
The iris are in bloom........
If you look closely behind the iris, you can see a red hot poker that is getting ready to bloom.
There is a cluster of violets peeking our from under the vintage wood wheel barrow. No flowers on these yet, but I did find some along the back fence that were in bloom. I have a photo of them further down ........
The Peony bush has a few buds on it.
I have white iris in bloom in the bed by the fence along the east side of the yard.
I don't remember the name of these succulents in the bed around the maple tree. All I can say is......nothing will grow on top of the maple tree's big ground roots,,,,, except this stuff!
The flower bed on the south side of the yard has a big snow ball bush at the end of it.
I'm going to cut some of these gorgeous flowers tomorrow and make a big floral design for the faux fireplace on the front porch.
Under the vintage metal plow is the cluster of violets that I mentioned earlier in my post.
Violets are like a weed, they spread everywhere!
Last summer, this plant was covered in yellow blooms. This spring, it has split off and looks like two different plants......don't know what happened!
This is the side yard that is just north of the deck that will come down Mother's Day weekend. The white wrought iron gate takes you to the front yard.
This big bush that is now a tree....lol....... is in full bloom.
For the life of me, I can't remember the name of this flower!
Please refresh my memory if you know the name of this bush!
There are several plants under my big bush....now a tree........that are in bloom.
Love these white flowers.
We have lots of greenery growing on the fence in the back yard
The flower bed in front of Our Happy Place is filling in nicely since you last saw it.
Now I need to take my camera and do a "walk around" in the front yard!
Thank you for stopping by....come back soon!
