When you step out the front door if you look right you will see that my Knock Out Roses survived, last years Easter Freeze, the drought and Maggie. She tried her best to dig them up so I put a little fence around them.
Looking left you can see the plumbago has covered the area in front of the Hosta. I cannot wait for their little blue flowers to appear.

After strolling down the side walk, I look back to see how the flowers appear and admire the green grass that Prince sowed and see how much the little Ginkgo Tree has grown. Cousin Susan gave the little tree to Prince from the big tree at Glen Leven.


This nice spot is on the right front side of the Log Cabin. Closer pictures of the sunshine through the iris to come in a later post.




I am looking down the drive from the yard.



At the curve of the drive are Brenda's pretty irises.





Standing in the spot I took the iris picture in the curve, I turn around and take one down the driveway.






My first painting of Parrots. I think I will so some more as they are rather fun to paint.
The Kitty Justice is that we are blessed with a wonderful day.

Lady Di,

I love all the photos of your beautiful house and yard. I love iris and of course my won't be blooming for a while. I am hoping my dark knight blooms this year. Last year I had nothing but foliage but am not sure why. The year before the iris was new and had one bloom. Mmm! I have never fertilized my iris before but maybe they need a little?

Love the painting of the parrots. Doing more is a great idea. Enjoyed visiting here this morning and seeing all your spring beauties.

Blessings,
Mary

Thanks, I fertilize flowers using Osmocote as it is a time relase and lazy me can just sprinkle it around.
Hope yours bloom soon for you. Peace

Marcel,
Thanks I had fun painting them and it is the farm girl in me along with my Christian ancestors that provide me with the green thumb. Peace.

Brenda brought those irises from her Mother's home and they produce really nice each year. Mine behind log cabin need to be seperated. Peace
