Springtime in GA

Our backyard is looking its best right now! Most of the flowers are in bloom, and some are just beginning.  Our one garden—which is called ‘The Butterfly Garden’—is still a little messy from a mishap in February, but thank goodness the ever popular azalea was not harmed.

Isn’t it lovely?

Here, you can see some of the violets surrounding the bush and St. Francis.

Ah, the violets!

More popular flowers are our violets.  Earlier this spring, they were covering the yard.

The pot in the background kind of gives the photo a rustic look, don’t you think? And speaking of rustic…

One lone violet growing by the barrel hoops.

Back to some more azaleas.  This is the beauty on the side of our house.

And now, last but not least: the Whites and Red.

They’re not quite in full bloom yet, but the white flowers are looking particularly pretty this year.  We planted the white ones nine years ago when Pope John Paul II passed away, and now, he is being made a saint! [Sniff sniff]

Next to these beautiful plants, is our ‘Mary Garden’.  In it are, the Bleeding Heart…

One of the most fascinating flowers to me.  We have had this for quite a few years now, and every year [so far] it has grown very big.

This picture I took because if you look closely, you can see a Chipmunk hole. (At the end of the row of Bleeding Hearts, you can see it in the leaves.  See it?)

Those other flowers are my mother’s Lily of the Valley.

Here is a close up of them.  (These aren’t in the Mary Garden; they are growing right by our house.)

These are also a part of our garden!

And these little guys are the troublemakers.  Our baby Wrens are growing very curious of us.  This scene is in the woods right behind our garden, and while I was taking pictures for this post, two of the babies came up and began chatting at me.

They really are so funny! (And I think these two should be named Merry and Pippin.)

The Dogwood trees in our yard are slowly leaving us, but we still have a few left.

But we did plant another one to take the last one’s place.  It’s a pink one!

Poems are made by fools like me,  But only God can make a tree.

Well, that’s it for the backyard…want to see the roses in our front yard?…

Here they are, just in case:

My sister and I picked theses two little bushes out about a month ago.  She picked this lovely pink one.

And I picked this pretty yellow one.

The other rose bush in the front has yet to bloom.  There are many buds on it though, so as soon as it blooms I’ll post some pictures of it.

This ends the tour of Springtime in Georgia.  Have a blessed week!
