Spring has sprung around here!!! Yes, even in the midst of freezing temps revealing itself around parts of the South, we still have some lovely plants growing in our yard and I am SOOO excited about it!!!
Would you please join me for a quick turn around our yard?
I plant petunias every year in the front of our house. They are annuals and never ever come back. I was pleasantly surprised to walk out our back door recently and discover these beautiful smiley petunias!! How they got there... only the birds know!!
Here is some Carolina Jasmine. I planted two last summer and I didn't even know that they bloomed!! I bought them because they smell so lovely. I can't wait to smell their sweet perfume!!!
I just LOVE irises! They are so old-fashioned PLUS they grow so nicely right under our bedroom window. I have yellow, white and purple (both light and dark purple) planted but so far only the darker purple has bloomed.
These are some new leaves on one of my hydrangea bushes!! Oh how I love my hydrangeas!! I have two planted on either side of my front porch. They get bigger and bigger each year and I look forward to seeing how big they will grow this summer!!!
This is the new growth on some oriental lillies I planted last Spring. I planted 25 of them and only about 12 grew last year (and only 2 bloomed!!). It looks like all 25 are already growing this year and I purchased 25 more to plant! I can't wait to see all the lovely blooms and have them to clip and bring indoors to brighten our home!!!
This is my lavender plant. It hasn't grown very quickly, so I'm not sure I have it planted in the best place. I did get some blooms last year and was able to smell that lovely, calming lavender scent.
Here is the beginning of one of my hostas peeking through the soil!! I just love hostas- they are easy to care for, come back year after year and grow so pretty and green each summer!
Thank you for touring my garden with me. I can't wait to invite you all back when everything is in full bloom!!
