Spring Around the Yard,2017

First I want to wish you all a very Happy and blessed Easter. I hope you have plans to be with family or friends. Today I decided to walk around the yard and take some shots. This was early afternoon. Then I went to get my nails done and then to the grocery and when I got home we had gotten mulched!!!! I was so happy, I went out and took new shots. I will show you a comparison of some places before and after. They only mulch the front, what they landscaped. Everything we did, we are responsible for. So we will get more mulch and do that ourselves. Starting at the front door, I now have real flowers in the bunny planters:) Last time I shared the porch I had faux flowers, as it was still too cold.
 Hyacinths in this guy,
 and pansies in this one.
 I will be planting real flowers in the urn, hopefully soon!

 Here is a pot of pansies before mulch,
 and after:)
 The rock garden before

 and after.

 This small viburnum has one bloom so far:)
 The hostas are just starting to come up.

 Here I have a hyacinth coming up IN the lambs ear! When we planted the lambs ear, the hyacinth was gone so we didn't realize it was there:) This is in the area around the pond so not mulched yet.
 The phlox is spreading
 This whole bed around the pond will be mulched soon.

 The fish are awake and happy. I see some new babies too!

 My color scheme this year is going to be lots of blues and whites. These pillows are perfect, I found them at Home Depot. The solid blue pillows are from Walmart, $5.00!!!!
 This blue and white pot also from Home Depot.

 Everything always looks so manicured after the bed are edged and mulched. I love it. Now when they mow, it will look even better!

 This purple hyacinth will be moved to the rock garden, I think. Unless I get a match and have a pair for here.
 The Lenten rose is still blooming.
 Thanks so much for stopping by.
XO, Pinky

  1. Good morning, Pinky. My Mister's favorite smell is Mulch. I'm glad they don't make a perfume with that odor because he would insist that I wear it. Your yard looks fabulous. I'm so jealous - we can't start planting until Mother's Day. I have a feeling that I may cheat. Have a wonderful Easter!!

  2. Everything is looking so beautiful. I can't wait to get our yard in shape after the pool is built.

  3. Love, love all your spring touches. Your home and yard look beautiful. Happy Easter to you and your family! xxx Maria

  4. Everything looks great Pinky I too love it when the mulching is done. I love the contrast it creates with the plants and how it makes everything look so neat. You are way ahead of our area with your plants. My hostas haven't even popped out of the ground yet! Have a great Easter weekend,

  5. Your yard always looks amazing!...I cannot wait till it is all in full bloom!....and as always your front porch is always so beautiful!, love that wreath!!!


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
