I have been busy in the garden getting things planted.
Red and Purple is my favorite color scheme,
and I feel like it connects it all together to have the same
color scheme at the front of the house.
Everything is small and just starting to
grow here in Michigan. I like to take pictures
of how it looks at the beginning of the season and
how big it grows.
My husband landscaped very nicely around the deck
and the basement patio. Last year that
was all just grass growing there.
My herbs from last year just look beautiful and full!
This year I will let them flower for the bee's.
I have all the herbs I need.
falling over the rock wall!
I planted flowers to attract butterflies
and humming birds all around our yard.
Aren't these beautiful?
My happy place....
This is a butterfly garden I put in this year next to this
patio. Hoping I will be able to sit and watch them
come to the flowers this year.
My secret secluded down stairs patio. Wisteria I planted last year is starting to bloom. You can also see the giant Columbine plant that I planted from a seed at our old house. It looked so tiny and
little when I transplanted it last year and look at it now!
One of my favorite views!
I repainted these wood and iron wall
hangings I had and wired pots on them
to dress up the downstairs patio wall. Look my bearded Irises
bloomed this Spring from my old house.
This year I added flower pots around the deck and pond with flowers.
My veggie garden is all planted. I also
have pots of flowers around the
garden to make it look pretty and
encourage pollinators to come visit.
All the fish survived their first winter hibernating in the pond.
At night it just looks magical I think. Lots of
Truely a dream come true and my little private paradise.
I was quite happy my little baby lilacs bloomed that we planted last year.
Another Iris I didn't know I even had..
