    My flowers are coming out fast now. I can't wait to get a good picture of my wysteria. The lavendar blooms are coming out fast on that too!
    All of the crabapple trees are blooming. I've lost count of how many we have. And we keep planting them. There are gobs of babies coming up. My husband potted over 50 more. They grow like around a foot a year.
    I have 11 lilac bushes blooming now. It smells so good in the yard.
    I love my flowers.

    The lavendar was hanging down. I had to put it up to weedeat.

    I would love to see your Wisteria. I have had a plant for years that has never bloomed. This year I went to a garden show and the "expert" told me to put bonemeal on it and it would bloom. Please cross your fingers for me (laughter); I would love to see a bloom on mine.

    What beautiful pictures of your yard! I have a new wisteria and am anxious for it to bloom,too.I read that pruning is the answer to getting blooms,so we'll see.

    It took mine three years to bloom Murphy. I did get one pic the other day. But they are just now showing a lot of color. I'm hopeing tomorrow to get a good pic. It has the most bloom it's ever had this year. If it doesn't get cold and kill them.
    I started my son one from it. And I found one rooted for my Aunt. So I have to get it dug and potted.
    Good luck on yours blooming.
    We have to fix a new arbor or something for mine. It has woven itself through the plastic lattice. And it's getting so big. We are afraid it's going to break the arbor.

    Wysteria, if you can see the blooms.

    Linda, yes I'm ready for the hummers and butterflies too! I brought one hummer feeder in to wash and get cleaned up. I'll fill it and put one out until they get started. Then I'll have to put out a bunch more. I've already saw one humming around.

    I have a lot of things coming up. Everything blooms at different times. I planted so many flower seeds yesterday. And some veggie seeds. A few herbs. Haven't even started on the garden yet.
    I bought some of those maximillion sunflower seeds. I still need to get them planted. I sure hope they do super good. I remember my grandmother having those at one of her clothesline poles.

    My big flower garden.

    Do you have to rub it in? We just had 6 inches of snow last Friday. Temps have been in the 40s. I long for spring.

    We do have tulips and perennials coming up, but no buds on the apple trees or lilacs yet.

    You have a beautiful place. I loved WV when we traveled through, but DH hated it - no straight roads and so easy to get lost.

    Barb44, Oh I'm sorry! giggle I hate you still have snow. I'm hopeing we don't get any more. I want to put all my houseplants out that I can. Some need repotted when I do put them out.
    No, there are not a lot of straight roads. I live out in the boonies. The river is down the mountain from our house. It's so pretty where I live. But I hate it in the winter time if I have to go out.
    I wanted to sell out and move somewhere else. But my husband said I wouldn't be happy anywhere else.

    Bleeding heart. Look close and you will see a bunch of the baby crabapple trees. I bet there were hundreds that have been cut down already.

    "out in the boonies....the river down the mountain..." Sounds wonderful. I bet it can be nasty in the winter. I don't like driving on our flat straight roads in the winter. I would probably "hole up" until spring.

    The river - is that the one that goes through Charleston? It was a pretty river.

    Love the trees and flowers. We garden a bit, too. Have set out over 85 plants, trees and shrubs so far in five years.

    I love a beautiful yard. I love your cat corner!! I have planted crapapple tree as apples really grow great up here, but the deer won't leave them alone. Nothing better than crapapple jelly. I planted lilac also, but they have stayed sticks never growing; much less blooming. I think this mountian soil is too acid for them. Feel blessed for your successes.
