I love spring...especially in a new place. I love anticipating what plants are going to look like and what kind of surprises will pop up from beneath the ground. The greens are dark and rich. And the variety of colors are vibrant and visually stimulating. Here's a peak at some of the plants and colors we've discovered around our new home this spring.
The lilac is in the perfect spot. As you walk out of the 3-seasons room, the wind catches the fragrance and this is the first thing you smell as you step outside. It is such a refreshing aroma.
Anyone know what kind of tree this is? A close up of the flowers are next...
We had a couple of guests search around our yard this past weekend. We think they found a place to nest behind some bushes next to our house. We've never had ducklings before. Anya says the ducks have adopted us. :) More and more of them have been wandering around our yard lately.
This is a beautiful flowering vine. Not sure what it is. But it adds a little pop at the edge of the patio.
