Welcome dear friends to this weeks "Home Sweet Garden" party!
I hope you all are enjoying the lovely spring weather we have been having.
It was the prettiest Easter we have had in ages.
It was in the mid 70s and it was almost hot in the late afternoon.
We were outside most of the day and
the girls and I are all a bit sunburned.
We went to church for a brunch in the morning.
The afternoon we fiddled around here.
Then my parents came over for supper on the deck.
It was a wonderful way to spend the day.
So, lets talk about the garden a bit.
I am so happy to see my magnolia blooming.
This was a plant from the garden club sale a few years ago.
It was a tiny little stick someone dug up from a local garden.
But it has grown into a lovely small tree now.
This is the prettiest it has ever been.
I am deciding to let it be a shrub or trim it up to be a multi branched tree.
It will probably remove many of the stems you see here.
But after I enjoy all the lovely pink colors.
I am guessing this is a Jane Magnolia.
It is a semi-late bloomer each spring.
Can you tell I love pink.... this is Flowering Almond Shrub.
So delicate and beautiful.
A peek into the Rose Garden... where the only pink is the Magenta Bench right now.
But pink blooms will be here very soon!
This bed still needs some clean up, but wanted to share the daffodils and lilacs about to bloom
The view down to the lake.
We have been watching the water birds this week.
They are nesting and have been close to the house a few times.
It drives my dog crazy.
I have a bit of news... we will be looking for a new home for Reno.
My hubby has the fence and equipment sold already.
It will be coming down in a few weeks.
We have enjoyed having him, but he needs more time and attention than he is getting.
But mainly the pasture is not large enough for him and we decided not to build a barn this Spring.
If you have livestock, you need protection.
So if you know someone looking for a nice gelding in Indiana, email me.
One more shot of these cute little blooms...
Gosh I love SPRING!
