Spring's Wonderful Bounty
Today, we will continue with some more photos
my spring garden's flowers....
We were very lucky when we built on this property.
There were two areas full of Vinca Minor vines that faithfully put out their violet/blue flowers
Red tulips enjoying the spring sun:
Double pink tulips and primrose after the rain:
Our property has HUGE boulders on it.
When we built your house, I had a bulldozer push them into some areas, forming a
semi-circle and then I put gardens into them...they make nice "backdrops" for
the blooming flowers.
A grouping of pink tulips:
I love buying a bag of "mixed tulips" and planting them in the fall.....
then waiting to see what colors come up in the spring.
One of my favorites is this two-toned yellow/red one:

Our first tree to blossom is this plum tree. We never get plums, but the birds LOVE this tree:
after the rain:
Nature doesn't fool around when it comes to beauty.....
