Happy Mother's Day

And what says MOTHER'S DAY better than flowers? Every week, new trees and plants are blooming in my yard and each new discovery is such a surprise to find... since, I moved in last fall. I went around and took some photos to share with you...



Here are some of the bulbs that I planted, that managed to survive the midnight snacking from the Nasty Garden Snails..




Some views of my outdoor patio area.. I also have a large balcony off my living room which is on the second floor actually on top of this patio. IF you happen to see the bags of cuttings from my yard clean-up.. please ignore them... I don't know where the 'organic recyle place is for my town'... all I know is that they don't pick it up from your house with the regular trash.

My newly planted HERB GARDEN... *My basil and parsley haven't been brought down with the other herbs yet.





Here's a view from my kitchen window (see the African Violets?) looking out onto one of my window boxes planted with flowers. I have these window boxes on all windows on the front of the house.

AND look at what I found outside and cut for a fresh bouquet. My living room smells so nice now.. of course, I did find a few bugs and spiders, as would be expected on the blossoms when I cut them, but of course.. now, it feels like bugs and spiders are crawling on me.. off and on.. at least I hope it's my imagination. :D



I hope everyone had a nice weekend...

I imagine winters are long there, but the blooming season makes the most of it's time, doesn't it? What gorgeous flowers!

AND if you can imagine.. those photos of my tulips was taken on SUNDAY.. May 10! We still have tulips blooming here... Pansy flowers too- I forgot to include the front of my yard in the photo display.

Nice blooming season.. I think maybe it lasts longer.. because the temps don't get as hot so soon?
