I am so excited about some new plants I bought this week at the Botanical Gardens Plantasia sale. As I tidy up the flower beds and prepare them for more spring planting, I’m planning places for my new additions. Before you see those, I want to show you some of my azaleas blooming now. The … Continue reading SIX ON SATURDAY: Some New Additions
I love that first walk around the yard every morning. Sometimes I have a cup of tea or coffee with me and sometimes I take the camera. I loved the way the sunlight was coming through the trees this morning. I deadheaded these roses yesterday and saw plenty of new buds for upcoming blossoms.

Well, I’ll share what I’ve got with you because, in the wake of this virus thing, we need some beauty to remind us that all … Continue reading Six On Saturday: Azaleas etc.
Last fall, I did a blog about a wildflower walk and posted photos of some autumn-blooming native plants in my area. Since spring is popping out all over, it's time to do a new wildflower post. Of course, you can call them weeds, but not today. In March, we turn our attention to Irish lore … Continue reading Six On Saturday: Spring Wildflowers
