    Flowers in my yard

    Thought I would share what is up and blooming in my yard at this time. It is so dreary today, raining all day, need to get in my garden so badly but every time it starts to dry out it rains again. And it is even cold today. Where oh where is Spring?

    Wow...I'd say that Spring has certainly sprung there!!! Beautiful.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    To me, it's a sure sign spring is here when the daffodils start blooming.

    Your porch looks like a great place to set and enjoy the flowers with a glass of iced tea.

    We just planted wave petunias,vines & a couple bright green spacer plants in window boxes today,so will be a while till they are looking pretty.
    DH planted a clematis vine & a miniature lilac too.It's raining now.Hope that helps them to get a good start.

    What an amazing flower garden. I didn't inherit my Mom's green thumb, unfortunately, but I can admire the beauty of other gardens. I know they can be a lot of work.

    Yes Twinkie, I believe it is the same. Love those knockout roses. I have a yellow one I will show soon.
