~~~Some Spring Flowers are BLOOMING!!!~~~

HI everyone! I am so in love with Spring! Mother Nature reminds us every year of her beauty and splendor. The earth comes alive again, right on cue and I am so grateful to have sight to see all this beauty. And the best part is, it is going to keep getting better!!!!!! SOME of the azaleas at our house are blooming. This red one is a favorite. Then the next one is such a pretty pink!

 I planted begonias in the mailbox. Joe built this many years ago for us. Where the numbers are cut out there is a light so it is lit at night.
 This is looking down our street. Our cherry trees are on the right here. We bought them many years ago and they were tiny, maybe 10 feet tall!!!!!! Now they are huge! I had to hurry though, the blooms are blowing off already! The white dogwood you see, Joe dug out of the woods when we built the house.
 Close up of the dogwood blooms......gorgeous!!!!!!

 A variegated hosta. We probably have over 100 hostas on our property, Joe keeps dividing them!
 Close up of one of the azaleas. This color is gorgeous to me!
 Cut leaf Japanese maple. We have 4 of these, 2 out front and 2 in the back.
 One of the ones in the front of the house.
 Some of the pansies. Love this variegated one.
 Pretty blue.

 Bleeding heart, SO pretty and evidently tastes good too:):)
 One of the bleeding hearts at the top of the pond. This came up from seed!
 ONE bud is blooming on this azalea, tomorrow many more will be blooming, I am sure.

White bleeding heart.
 These are candleabra primroses. I will show you how they come up in LAYERS....just like a candleabra! We have many around the pond but only this one is starting to bloom.
 The ferns, etc. are filling in around the pond.
 Joe built this swing many years ago. Last year we restained it and did it EBONY with the seat a warm brown that matches the deck. I love the black!
 This is a SWEET smelling viburnum. I have several blooms right here at my desk so I can enjoy the fragrance, it is heavenly!

 The hibiscus that we kept alive all winter (!!!) is blooming again!!!!!!!!! I love this!!!!!
Thanks so much for coming, I love to read ALL of your comments so be sure to let me know you were here!!!! XO, Pinky I am linking up with Kim at Savvy Sotern Style for Wow us Wed. at http://www.savvysouthernstyle.blogspot.com/  Go on over to see some awe inspiring things!!!!


  1. Now those again, are some serious spring photos. You can't feel anything but great when you see those. Especially love the dogwood.

  2. Your yard is looking lovely Pinky. SO much work but so enjoyable this time of year.

  3. It's so nice to see all of your beautiful spring blooms and flowering trees! I can't wait for my own bleeding heart to flower- I didn't know they taste good!!

  4. Gorgeous blooms, Pinky. We are beginning to see more and more. Our Azaleas never do well, here in NE MO. Once in awhile we will see one growing like they do in the south...even as they do in the southern part of our state.

    I couldn't resist bringing Iris in the house. I always "need" an Iris bouquet. Still have lots in the gardens. We planted about 200 of them, from J's Aunt Ruth's gardens, last year and the year before. They are really getting thick.
