Springtime Flowers


Burgundy Columbine, originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.

I’ve been really busy for a few days outside since we’ve had nice weather. I wore a tank top and shorts today it was so warm. I’m happy to see the flowers, but wish they weren’t coming up around that creepy ‘Creepy Charlie’ and leaf debris. I have 5 crates of yard decorations and emptied 3 of them! I didn’t show the Asian bed as it’s not too colorful yet, but I have the pagodas all set up there.
These Columbine are in the mainly Iris garden and I have white Irises blooming too:

Brian just planted a new Iris for me tonight-apricot color.
Also have a garden named for my friend Gret who loves nature and squirrels:

Nicotiana with Squirrels
And the pond area is up and running and also cleaned out:
Pond Garden
There are two new plants here, a pink and purplish Wallflower and a red Salvia (not shown here, but planted near the gazing ball).
So I’m making a dent in the work, but lots to do!
Last but not least, the little strawberry house I found at the flea market set in the gnome garden:

  1. Look at the size of those bleeding hearts! I miss having those. Love the white iris, too.

    It looks like you have been working hard.

    I just walked out where the water was and it’s all dry now. I pulled a few weeds by bare hand and then came back inside. I am just not in the mood today. Gone are the days when I would get home from work, change clothes and run outside to grab a shovel.

  2. ahhhh!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! tysm!!!
