My Neck of the Woods is Wakin' Up!

Last Thursday I spent the afternoon doing some much needed clean up in the herb/flower beds in front of my house.  I was rewarded with so many beautiful sights such as.........


You may call these peonies, but where I'm from we call them piney bushes......


Our lilies are bursting from the ground.......


The chocolate mint smells like heaven and is so beautiful to boot.....


The Japanese Painted Fern is coming around.


Our little fairy watches over our garden.  I think she's as ready for spring as we are!




God Bless..................

    Hey Tberry! Good to hear from ya! ;0)

    Thanks Kris :D

    Tonia, I've been totally doin' the Whoo hoo dance! It is funny how just a little bit south makes such a difference!

    Fernvalley, I'm sure it takes longer to get as far north as you are, but you are right, it's travellin' that way!

    Hey Autumn, those spring rains really do make everything lush and green don't they?

  9. The garden is finally waking up here as well although the weeds are definitely outgrowing everthing else. It's still good to see that spring really is arriving.
