       So My Love and I moved to our lovely home at the end of October. Fall was in full swing and then winter hit. Well, Spring is here at last and it is exciting to scope out the flower beds and yard and discover all the flowering plants and trees.

At first I thought all the greenery by the front door was hostas. Then my sister Lydia pointed out that they were actually Lilly of the Valley. I personally think that is a much better surprise than hostas.

I wasn't too sure about these plants, but then I checked them yesterday and realized that they are full of buds. I think they might be peonies, but I'm not sure.
There are lilacs.
And a couple different varieties of crab apples.

Then there is this. The Lovely Keren Ruth thought they looked like Yoda. So it's the Yoda Bush
Then of course there are the violets and dandelions.

I also know that there are wild rose bushes out there. Happy Thursday.

  1. I am a little jealous of your yard with flowers already planted in it. :-) Oh I won't actually be jealous but it does make want to work even harder to get all those things planted at our place. I hope you enjoy them a lot!
