SPRINGTIME IN OUR OWN BACK YARD

 

Springtime was a long time in cooking this year. But when she arrived, the luscious bounty of breathtaking blooms we received was worth the wait.

Here's a small sampling of nature's beauty I'd like to share.

So take your time and enjoy the flowers. I invite you to use these anyway you like since none are copywrited; just admire and pass along.

As more blooms open, I'll make sure to add them here.

ENJOY!

      Thanks for the kind comment and tip. I actually signed up for Redgage a couple years back, but could never get the interface to work. Maybe I'll try again. Have a blessed day!

      Thank you for offering these wonderful pictures...I get so homesick this time of year, even though I love the Caribbean, spring is the season I most miss. The lilacs are my screen saver...Thanks!

      Beautiful garden. I have most of what you have in my garden but mines not as neat and their a long way from blooming. Loved the photos.

      Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I cannot take full credit for this garden. It truly has been a work in progress for the last few years. My wife and I have done the work together, but she wants nothing to do with the roses except display the blooms. I'm fine with that. They are kind of my baby more or less. I've learned many things from working in the yard. Maybe I'll write a hub later. I'll do my best to either update this hub or do another so be sure to check back every few days. Thanks again for viewing. The response to these photos has been humbling for sure.

      This is my first year of really trying to make a great garden and so far it is looking pretty good. now not as good as yours but not bad. Maybe in a few years I can take pictures and we can compare. Great hub. Got some ideas on new plants. Thanks so much.

      Hi Rob,

      In Northern California they grow beautifully, but in Southern California it is a no go! I have tried in several different locations, and sun spots...we don't have the freeze in the winter it takes to make them bloom in the summer. :(

      Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I'm glad you all like them. I'll update this page every so often with new photos. Probably tomorrow with the roses we have coming out. Anyway...

      Jeff, no I have never been to the Steamboat Arabia. I've heard it's great and have no excuse for not going. When I go, I'll let you know.

      ITD: Yes, the peonies are great. They like full sun and soft fertile soil. To grow them in CA I'm not sure. You could try a large planter and plenty of water. They are water lovers.

      Jacob and CW thanks for the nice words. In Oregon, you have one of the best climates for roses in the world. I'm a bit jealous. Send some photos.

      Mariesue. Yes, the Olympiad red is a looker. It's only downfall is its lack of scent. It was bred for the 1984 Olympic Games in LA thus the name. It's very hardy and a standout red for sure. If you want a red with scent, get a hybrid tea known as Mr. Lincoln. It's a bit fussier to grow.

      Once again, thanks everyone for such nice words. Blessings!

      Rob,

      Wow, wow, wow, isn't nature beautiful! Living in a "desert" called California, we struggle to make the desert bloom. My favorite flower is the Peony, and my are they expensive to purchase here! They dry beautifully too! Lovely garden, you are truly blessed.

      I'm so jealous!! These flowers are beautiful. I live in Northern MN, and our spring is really late. My tulips are just blooming now. Please post more, these are lovely; I may be inspired to take out my watercolors. Thanks Rob.

      Hey, Rob - have you ever gone to that Arabia paddlewheeler shipwreck museum there in KC?  We went there several times and it just keeps getting better!  Definitely one of the more interesting places to take the kids!

      Jeff, thanks for viewing my hub. Gardening is vastly becoming a primary hobby for our family. I love it, but have much to learn. As far as bees are concerned, we have great success with a ground cover called plumbago, perennials such as lithyrum, purple and orange coneflowers, and beebalm of course. Spirea bushes are also a good bet. Thanks again.

      Beautiful flowers, are there any that specifically attract butterflies? I see a few that will help give bees a chance - we have had so few bees in the past two years in our area.
