Pin It


My gardens are coming alive!

Yay! Flowers are beginning to bloom and plants are starting to grow! I love this time of the year, cause that means I get to play in my gardens!

These are a couple of tulips in my front garden. They're pink, orange, and deep red. SO pretty!

This is an Iris that is getting ready to bloom. I've got lots of them in my front & backyard gardens, and I think they are purple. My MIL gave me A LOT of Iris's a few years ago, and they are finally going to bloom this year. So exciting! I guess they need lots of time to root when they are dug up and moved to a new home. I'll be posting them once they bloom. 

This is one of three Hosta plants I have in my front yard garden. All three of them are starting to come alive, and when they are fully grown, they are gorgeous! They are a tropical plant and when fully grown, they produce the prettiest light-purple/blue trumpet-like flowers. They do best in shady areas, and mine only get bright light when the sun is setting. I love that they last all Summer long!

Another Hosta starting to take shape. You'll be amazed when you see them fully grown and in bloom. Here's an example from wikipedia.

 And finally...this is a large patch of "what the heck?!" I think they might be orchids, but I'm not sure. All I know is that they are growing in my front yard.....and there are hundreds of them! I've fenced them off and now I'm just waiting to see what this mystery plant turns out to be. If anyone has any ideas...I'd love to hear them! Thanks in advance and thanks for reading!

So pretty when those flowers start to bloom! I'm a little behind you here in the frozen north -- but I did go to the nursery today! Yay!

Brenda, I love the tulips. I've seen them in Netherland, on the fields, amazing colors ! That patch of What the Heck looks to me like wild mint( I have them by thousands in the backyard ) ! Crush a leaf and see how it smells !
