Outdoor Wednesday ~ Currently Blooming in My Yard

Lily of the Valley
Clematis Iris
(don't know the type as it was from a friends garden several years ago. It blooms later than my bearded iris)
Purple Rhododendron Deep Pink Rhododendron Hosta with Spiderwort in background Climbing Hydrangea Blue Salvia Clematis
One morning last week I was walking Raider around the yard. The sky was so blue and the trees with their newly opened leaves were still a bright green. The sun was brightly shining and made the Japanese Maple leaves ablaze, especially when viewed from the underside.

Just beautiful! We are still having Sprinter here! Seems like it will never come...Spring that is! :D

Absolutely gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing these photos. We're still having freeze warnings some nights.

Mildred said...

How lovely everything looks! Don't you just love this time of year? I bet Raider has a great time walking with you!

Thank you for your kind comments.

Well, let me say that I adore your blog!

Each of us share what we know via our blogs. I choose to share my quilting hobby whilst you generously open your home.

If I had the time, I would also have a blog journaling my home life…but if I did that I simply wouldn’t have enough time left over to actually live it!

You blog is inspiring. I mean really: faith, family, food and flora…what else is there?

Julie said...

Beautiful flowers! I love Springtime flowers.

Susan said...

Wow, LDH, those photos were awesome. Thanks so much for sharing such beauty. Sincerely, Susan

These are beautiful pictures and they look so pretty in a mosaic. I wish I could grow some of these beautiful plants, but I have not got "green" fingers!!!

Thanks for popping in to see us today-you always say the sweetest things!

Best wishes always,

Love your mosaic! Japanese Maples are one of my favorites. I had one when I lived in Texas.

Lovely, lovely, floral. Lily of the Valley is my most favorite flower.

Ann said...

Gorgeous pictures. There still isn't a whole lot to look at around here. I did notice though that my iris is getting ready to bloom. The picture of your hosta puts mine to shame

All your flowers are gorgeous and I am going to have to try that risotto recipe. I love risotto.

Happy Outdoor Wednesday- a day late! :-)
I am just getting around to visiting all the blogs.
Really lovely photos, the Japanese Maple against that blue blue sky is stunning!!

I am responding from the Bonsai tree post. The little tree was UNDER 6 inches, maybe 3 or 4 inches at the most. The Wisteria bonsai was maybe 2, 2.5 feet high. I don't think it was anywhere near 3 feet high. The little tree was so outshown by the wisteria, I never even looked at what it's name was.
