Flowers Everywhere

Well – maybe the flowers aren’t everywhere – but they seem to be in every corner of my yard right now.  I love this time of year.  🙂 The Blue Spruce has come a long way from the little 4 inch twig that Angie brought home from the community club when she was about 3… Continue reading Flowers Everywhere

Flowers are Blooming

I’m glad I planted quite a few perennials over the years that bloom in the spring and early summer, so I can enjoy them this spring.  I have decided not to plant any annual flowers this year, since they normally look their best in the late summer and autumn and I won’t be living here… Continue reading Flowers are Blooming

Today’s Flowers

So, today, I have the daffodils… Continue reading Today’s Flowers
