My Yard in All it's Glory
Of course my pics always turn out
the best when I use the Nikon!
I have four Hydrangea bushes that
are the same. I started with two, now
I have four and I have given a couple
away. Then I have a mini Hydrangea
bush that has not bloomed since
I got it several, several yrs ago.
I love these flowers.
Funny thing, these bloom a certain
color depending on the acid in the
soil. Or that is the way it is
suppose to be. My bushes however
will bloom pink, purple and blue
all from the same bush.
Today I decided that I wanted
to make markers for my herbs.
Pineapple sage. Never used
.this, never grew it before but I
think it will be good on chicken.
My blocks are blooming all
over with Lemon Sage, Basil,
This is Lemon Sage. I have never
cooked with it but I have had it in my
garden for close to 30 yrs. Can't really
bring myself to cook with it cause
it smells like Pledge.
Two vines growing up
the baby bed springs..
my redneck trellis!
I have Egyptian Bean and Vinca.
Spiderwort...beautiful plant. Easy to grow...
hate the name!
Blooms in the morning and closes
up around noon.
Check out the height on my
red Crepe Myrtle bush.
My ivy in a basket.
Dakota getting in on the pic.
I got this Lily of some sort from my
mom. Not a clue what type or if
it will bloom.
4 o'clock plant.
This is the bloom on my Cilantro. I have
never grown this but I love the
way it taste.
My metal chair was a dark green and
I decided with all the color in the yard
with the stepping stones I needed
to rethink that color.
I had this color in my stash!
The metal thing holding the pots is
actually a candle holder that normally
holds glass vases. I found the metal
part at Goodwill many yrs ago and I
have used it with pots in it since getting
it. Now I just need to add plants!
Loving my colorful painted pots
on the steps going up to the deck.
Yikes...noticed my flag needs a good bath.
I did reading up on it and you can wash them.
I will be doing that in the next couple of days.
This is my front porch.
Hosta are blooming.
As well as my Day Lilies.
I love this plant and the blooms.
My Yucca blooms.
This started many years ago from a
plant a woman I worked with
shared with me.
Never had it produce so many
starts from it with so many
stalks to bloom.
Close up of the Day Lily.
The leaves are so soft it is like
running a lambs ear.
Around the mailbox base.
This Lily is from my neighbors yard.
This Lily is also.
A visitor to my Hydrangea bush.
Hope I have been able to add some color
to your life today!
I went to feed yesterday and was amazed
at how much better she appears to be.
I figure 24 hours could not
make that much difference but
there again...no itching from flea
bites is bound to make a difference.
She greeted me with sweet meows
and once I finished feeding the horses,
the cats and the pigs I sat under
the tree for a few minutes with
Shadow, just talking (me) and rubbing
her. There were a lot of meowing
going on (Shadow...not me)...and I
think she knows I am the one that
helped her. I am happy!
Today my middle grandson DJ came and
stayed the afternoon with me that
will be tomorrows post!
Have a great evening.
Here is where I start my days and
tonight this is where I will close the
