Hi everyone! Today we are joining Dory for Flower Friday.
Let’s start with some wide views of the yard. Then we will zoom in an get some close up views of the flowers.
Here is a quick video panning around the yard from the patio. A lot has changed since the last video like this I posted a month ago.
If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.
Now let’s take a closer look. (Don’t forget you can always click on an image to see a bigger view)
In this corner of the yard we have a nice variety of green and red foliage. On the right are some viburnum blooming and in the middle is our Miss Kim Lilac.
It’s too bad someone hasn’t invented smell-o-vision yet because the scent from the lilacs is divine.
Most of the plants in the perennial garden survived our harsh winter. Charlie has moved a few things around and added a couple of plants too.
This Amsonia is one of the new additions in the perennial garden. I love the delicate blue flowers.
The North East corner of the yard shows off the variety of foliage colors in our yard. Let’s move in a little close to see what is in bloom.
I’ve shown you pictures of some of these flowers so lets zoom in on some we haven’t see yet this year.
One of the new additions in this area are a couple of Yellow Knock Out Roses.
The roses start out the dark yellow and then fade to a pale yellow as seen above on the left. The weigela flowers are similar in that they start out as a darker pink and then fade to almost white with pink centers.
To finish today’s tour around the yard we have a Japanese Maple surrounded by two different viburnum.
Well I hope you enjoyed this walk around our garden today.
