Spring bulbs start the show around here but now that it is May there are other plants blooming. This thread will be for general scenes around the garden.

This is the slope that goes uphill in back of my back patio. It is a favorite spot of mine.

This is the slope at the side of my driveway. Planted in daylilies and spring bulbs.

Here is a look along the left side of my front yard and the raised daylily bed that runs along there. Spring blubs bloom in back of those daylilies.

I think the patio views show what I am all about. The garden has shrubs, flowers and veggies all growing.

The hardscape I did not do myself but rather paid to have it done. A liitle at a time. It took years to get it all done.

That one is called Big John. I love the color on it but it's not a very big bloom.

Dutch Iris are bulbs and my Dutch iris just started blooming.


The Mountain Ash trees are in full bloom. They make lots of fruit which the backyard birds eat up during the winter.
