A Garden Stroll

The past several days we've been working outside, enjoying the blooming flowers and trying to fight the weeds. It never fails to amaze me how well grass grows where it's not supposed to!
Here's a view of our front yard where you can see a hino crimson azalea, a mollis azalea, and our rhododendron.

In the backyard the golden chain is in full bloom. It's next to a Korean dogwood and a "forest pansy" redbud.

Dick also took a couple of columbine photos; they are such pretty flowers and so easy to grow here!
Pink and yellow columbine
Pink and white columbine
Here's a really different iris; it has the slightest tint of lavendar. Isn't spring great?

Dear Judy,
what a wonderful garden you have!
Enjoying all the flowers I walked through with a great pleasure.
For a few time you asked me for the embroidery in my blog banner. I stitched the "Geranium Fairy" last year, it is from DMC.
Judy, if you want the "Shell Heart" from the last post, please contact me. You find my mail address in my profile. I can send it to you, because it's a free pattern.
Have a good week and take care

Such a gorgeous front yard!!!! I am so jealous. LOL I love flowers and plants so much (strange then that I live in the desert LOL).
We did have quite a bit of a crazy weekend and now this Saturday is my daughter's 4th birthday party. It will be a princess party with Cinderella as the main event. She loves Cinderella.

Thanks for the garden tour!
Our golden chain tree finished two weeks ago..strange, isn't it?
The roses are so late, though. I am impatient! And you are right, the bright threads help...a lot.

Oh my, what a lovely garden! I'm just not a gardening person but I don't know why....

Thanks for visiting!
