My Easter Garden…



Now don’t be looking for any bunnies…. although there are a few scattered around the place…


I just thought I would share with you how things will be looking for the big egg hunt this weekend.


As you can see things are lush and getting fuller by the day.  My alliums are almost ready to open.  I have them everywhere now… over 100 bulbs.


The hosta and daylily by the driveway are showing up nicely.  This has turned out to be a really nice bed.  It was kind of an afterthought, but  it looks nice as you drive in.


Speaking of, this is our driveway plantings.  This bed needs more mulch, but everything made it!  It has been a stormy windy spring. 


And the wildflower bed is out of control, but I love it that way.  I am amazed how this has filled in… it is 2 years old this spring.



Coming down from the deck…. purple and deep wine is so pretty this week here.  This is one of my favorite areas right now.  I have been working on this bed.


See those gaps?  I’m gonna fill them soon.  I have been extending my borders.


Looking toward the butterfly garden.  The hill behind is it really pretty this time of year.


May things here will be blooming any day. 


And the front walk has some lovely purple blooms.  I am so happy the irises have started.  Let the show begin!


Does this look like the Easter Bunny to you?  He’s the closest thing I have…. I can’t be taking any pictures without two cats following me around.  I think he likes the plants being back as much as I do!

I have more to show, but incase things get crazy here….. Happy Easter Everyone!



PS>>>>  I changed my background again.  My last on said “Can’t wait till Spring” 

This one looks a bit fall, but I liked the graphic… so I may keep it for awhile!
