This week has been a wonderful week for my gardens. So many plants and flowers are in full bloom and they just seemed to all pop at once! I love this time of year and when the sun is shining and the breeze is blowing there is no place I would rather be but outside.
The Azaleas were so pretty that I cut off a branch and brought them in just to enjoy.
they even surrounded my little garden fairy
I planted 3 lily of the valley plants when I was trying to add some new plants to a bed in the front of the house ~ with no help from me there are probably well over 100 plants now in that same bed. They have the most amazing scent ~ I always bring some of these into the house ~ they don't last long once cut but the few days they are in the house they provide such a lovely fragrance.
The Clematis is in the bed right in front of the porch ~ I'm replacing the railing this year so I just left most of the clematis 'down' but did add a removable trellis for some upward growth and color ~ it's almost totally filled in at this point.
Dame's Rocket around my Red Garden Ladder ~ these are a great spreader as well.
I cannot remember the name of this plant but it made it's way from the back of the house to front and is another prolific spreader.
The climbing roses are getting ready to bloom......
Last year I had poison ivy THREE times ~ this year I am not giving it a chance...I'm going to kill this sucker before it gets me!
and left side ~ you can check out last year's Front Yard Makeover here.
I'll be having more front yard makeover pictures for you soon ~ the tree that was right in the center of the front yard was dying and couldn't be saved so now we need to figure out what to do with that big empty space *sigh*
I hope you enjoyed the tour ~ I'll have a backyard makeover for you in a few weeks along with What's Blooming Updates~ right now the back yard is a HUGE mess ~ a big sandpit where the pool used to be and lots of mud.
I hope you're enjoying your spring so far!
