Welcome to my Spring Garden

Spring came early this year in the middle of March, due to the warm weather and lots of rain.  After 6 years of very little rain everyone lost lots of plants.  I lost about 10 rose bushes.

This rose bush is a David Austin climber and it is stunning and the smell WOW

One of my beautiful iris plants.  Really bloomed early.

Love to hear the sound of moving water from the fountain - it's so relaxing.

This is my plant "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow", each day it is a different color.

These plants are my Bells of Ireland  and they come back each spring.

Looking at my gazebo - it needs a hair cut. All of the above photo;s are from the back yard.

Nap time for the dogs and me too.

My son Shaun and his girl friend Kim.  They stopped by to take me to dinner as they were off to Costa Rico the next day for Kim's Birthday.  We had a wonderful dinner and I loved my steak. Had a grand time with them - they are so much in love and cute together.  She is a head nurse in the Labor and Delivery Department of a near by hospital.

Just a few of my beautiful Iris's  they came so early this year and their colors are so vibrant.

Another one of my David Austin  climbers in the front side yard.  They sure smell so good.

This is the Eden rose and its a climber

Red Eden rose

Porch all dressed up for Easter.

This Iris is such a soft lavender color.  Wished they stayed longer that 2 days.  I wait all year for them to bloom and then here and gone.

This is a wild flower and I forget the name of it.  They sure are pretty and fill the garden beds so nicely.

These pictures are shots of my front yard and I would like to get rid of all the grass and just have roses and flowers in the front yard.

My Chicago Peace rose with so many buds on the plant.

That is the front yard with all the roses and iris in bloom.  Hope that you liked my Spring garden.

Today was the Fullerton Garden Tour and I didn't go on it as there wasn't a lot of gardens that I liked.
Next weekend is the Mary Lou Heards Garden Tour.  I am hoping that I can get to one of the days.  But they said rain next weekend, we will see.

So that's what i have been up to.  I just shopped the house and re-arranged my vignette with different items.  Will do another post next week with my shopping spree.

I don't seem to have a lot of time lately.  I have been taking my neighbor to therapy twice a week.  She fell and really hurt herself and can hardly walk.  Then with my Doctor visits and grocery shopping - the week is gone  and I am pooped. I also take a friend shopping too as she does not have a car. I am
the driver for the neighborhood. Doesn't take much to get me tired, then I sit down and read or nap for a little while and get up and finish my chores.

I hope all of you are having a beautiful Spring and your gardens are amazing.

Waldo, Lili and I thank you for stopping by to visit with us and hopefully you will leave us a comment.  I'm off for my nap - the dogs are calling me.
