April Visit to my Front Yard

Welcome!Pat came by to visit the other day & said "I could sit here & look at & smell this garden all day...you HAVE to share this garden with everyone." Well, I can't share the smell but here are a few photos of what are in bloom right now.

This is walking up the sidewalk to the door & you can see my birdbath (sorry the cord is not covered by foliage yet... give it time it's still early) splashing away surrounded by the blue Rocket Larkspur & a yellow Columbine as well as my red Geranium. I can't decide if I want to leave the geranium in the hanging basket or plant it. Hmmmm decisions!
A close up of the fountain. It sounds so pretty when we sit out & enjoy the patio area. "Honey gave it to me one year for my birthday.
The Yellow Rose of Texas! This one smells divine!One of my sweet statues that sits under my pine tree & in front of my Rosemary bush. The gazing ball in the purple Verbena.
And this sweet little guy loves living in the Verbena!
Hope you enjoyed this short little Saturday tour of our garden in April. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs!

I love looking at other people's gardens! It is quite lovely and cozy. I don't think I've ever had a geranium that was hanging. They do have trailing ones I think though. Mine are in pots on the gravel.

Thanks so much for stopping by my laundry room post. I appreciate your gracious comments. You asked about my header. I did not do it, my friend Barb at Grits and Glamour did it for me. She is so thoughtful and found the perfect picture. Hugs, Marty

Hi Charlene ~ I love your garden and am envious! The snow is gone here, but everything is still very dormant. We have pussy willows, but nothing else. I expect the trees and grass will begin next, with planting season kicking off on Memorial Day. We have lots of daylight here and things grow wonderfully, but it's a short, intense growing season.

Blessings ~ Eileen @ Star's Fault

Gardens are magical places. Yours is beautiful. Ironically, I just posted a gardening essay on my site that you might enjoy if you have time to stop by.

Happy gardening!

Hi again... I just read your other comments on my other posts. Thanks so much.

You asked, "Did you find any beach glass while out on the beach?"

No, I didn't, and I'm not sure I even know what that is. :) But the beaches were so awesome. And you saw the haul of shells I brought home.
