Spring !

 I am hoping that Spring has finally arrived and I want to enjoy it for a few weeks but today they have forcast the temp's to be in the 90" how crazy can we get?  I still have a few areas in the flower beds to get cleaned up but on Monday my oldest DD came down and "we" cleaned out all along the fence..Wow, what a big help that was and I am so grateful to have that done. I am in love with Spring so I wanted to show you a few pictures of my back yard.  The bottle tree is new, I received it for Christmas from oldest DD & husband. I really like it!!
In the above picture you can see part of "what I call" of my herb garden but now it's mostly flowers except 1/4 of the area has some hardy herbs still growing...Isn't that grass green?
My Redbud tree fully in bloom, I love this time of year.

My tulip bed,,  ha ha. My tulips have petered out so I must plant a few new ones this Fall. I have just a couple of more to bloom in the herb garden but that's about it. I haven't planted any new one for several years so what can I expect?
The Virginia Bluebells, I really like them too but I just wish they would last a little longer than they do. They are so delicate looking and they come up every year. We moved to this house in the early 70"s and they came with the house. Soon they will die down and then the Japanese Iris will follow.  .
See that house in the background, we lived there until we moved to this was not a long distance move!!  That house has a wonderful front porch and a wrap around porch in the back.  It was a very comfortable house and sometimes I wish that I still lived there..I am going to one of my Mini groups this afternoon to stitch and visit.....Sew until next time, I hope you have a Stitches kind of day.............

A bit of fragrance clings to the hand that gives flowers.

  1. well I take it you had a reason to make such a short move - you certainly knew your neighborhood :) love your gardens and you bottle tree

  2. Cute bottle tree, and nice flowers. I have leaves, but not a single bloom so far. My tulips must have froze over the winter.

  3. Love the bottle tree! Your yard looks pretty, even though the tulip does look a little lonely! We used to have a lone tulip that grew in the fence line. It came up for years, but finally died out.

  4. I adore your bottle tree!! That's on my wish list. =)

  5. I love your bottle tree and all the wonderful colors of the bottles! Your gardens are beautiful!

  6. Lovely yard, Sew and Sow sent me to say HI

  7. Love the bottle tree. I am visiting from Jan at Sew and Sow Farm.
