It's so nice to have flowers in the yard.
I'm happy, the birds are happy, and the bees are happy.
Everything seems brighter, and prettier, and smells wonderful!
The lilacs help with the fragrance, inside as well.
Don't you just love the delicate Lobelia flower?
The two little white spots look like tiny eyes peering out from the flower's face as they bob around on the slightest breeze.
I remember walking home from school in the Spring, and passing a grand old home that had Iris along the walkway. All different sizes, and colors.
I told myself that I would grow these beautiful flowers when I grew up.....and I do!
The periwinkle color of the Vinca flower is a favorite here at Lakehouse.
There used to be many Columbines growing here, but two years ago the wild rabbits wiped them out. I was very sad to realize they were gone last year. Now we have very few left. I am hoping they will start self-seeding again for more flowers in the coming years.
The same for the English Daisies.
We have very few of these little cuties left.
The rabbits and deer ate so many of my favorite flowers the past two years.
I am trying to replant more this year.
The three Clematis did not winter well. I planted another this year.
Hopefully, the older plants will come back, and do okay this summer.
Some sweet smellies for the garden.
Lots of annuals to help fill in the new garden where the perennials haven't filled in yet.
Vintage pieces to add some interest.I still have so much weeding, and planting that needs to be done, but thought I would share what I have so far.
It's a labor of love, for sure.
Enjoy being outside, and doing what you love.
