Out in My Spring Garden
I never got to show you my Spring garden yet...
So...here you go!:
I don't know why this tulip drooped, but it made for a good photo!:
I got this little "welcome" sign with a little bird house on it for my garden
at a yard sale for $3.00!! I just loved it and had to have it:
Tulips, forget-me-nots, rocks and an old metal teapot in the background:
Tulips, and Primrose in my side garden:
This is the third year these pointy little red tulips came up for me.
I really like their shape:
Various tulips throughout my yard:
When we bought our lot on the lake, we were very lucky to find a lot
with a lot of apple trees.
Our whole front yard is alive with blossoms every spring!:
And this year?
We heard more than bumblebees humming in the trees, pollenating them.
One night, I went outside and it was humming LOUDLY in the blossoms.
To our delight,
it was FULL of about 15 hummingbirds drinking and buzzing in the blossoms!:
I love photographing the INSIDE of tulips.
This one was facing right out at me as if to say:
"Take my picture, pick me, pick me!":
My husband found some old metal wheels to stick here and there
in my garden...
I have four:
I hope your Spring was as wonderful as ours was
and that your summer is too!
