Hi everyone! Today we are joining Dory for her Flower Friday Blog Hop. We are still a little slow going with our flowers but we will show you what we have. Our daffodils are finally blooming.

As promised from our last Flower Friday our Fragrant Viburnum is in full bloom and giving the yard a wonderful smell.

Our serviceberry is also in bloom and was host to our first Yellow Swallowtail butterfly of the season.

Here is another view of the serviceberry next to one of our showiest Japanese Maple trees in the spring. We just love how the leaves come out red and eventually will fade to green.

If you are wondering where Millie & Walter are they can usually be found hanging out in the shade of the Katsura tree. You might have to click on the image to make it bigger to see them.

To finish here is one of our garden sculptures, a German Shepherd Dog, surrounded by geranium that will bloom later this spring.

FlowerFridayBlogHop 2016

Hi everyone! Today we are joining Dory for her Flower Friday Blog Hop. We haven’t had much to show you yet but a few of these pictures were taken in late March when we had a bit of a warm spell.

First up are our witch hazel. These smell so nice and the bees just love them.

Next up is our Cornelian Cherry Dogwood. The flowers were just starting to open at this point. On warm days when the buds are fully open this small tree is just full of all sorts of bees and wasps.

We have one shrub that is blooming right now.

Next up is the only flower we have blooming. We’ve had such cold nights that it was kind of drooping and I had to practically lay on my stomach to get this picture.

We do have a few other daffodils that are just about to bloom.

The perennial garden is starting to grow but we are a few weeks away from any flowers here unless we get a warm period.

The only thing left to show you are some buds on our flowering shrubs.

We can’t wait for the last two viburnum to open because these too have such a fantastic fragrance. We have so many of these shrubs that when the wind is coming from the right direction the entire yard smells divine.
