Tulips, Lilacs and Wine



This Spring has been different.  Eighty degrees one day fifty the next.  The good thing has been that the warmth that makes the flowers bloom is tempered by the cool temperatures that keep the blossoms fresh longer.  These tulips were slow to pop, but I've enjoyed them for days.
 Same with the lilacs.  The warmth makes them bloom and sends the fragrance wafting through the air.
 This is week three enjoying the blooms because of the cool temps.
 The back view of my arbor.  We still haven't replaced this leaning plastic one, but in spring even the leaning arbor looks quaint and lovely.
 This is the bacopa basket I bought from our club's sale.  It got on the list because it's one of my favorites with tiny white flowers all summer.
 I love white in the garden, and pinks, and blues, yellows even orange marigolds!
While I was working the sale on Saturday, my sweetheart was buying me this bottle tree.  We are not drinkers, so it might take a while to fill this, but I love when the sunlight hits the colored bottles.  That's the place where the pond used to be, all filled in ready for planting.  That's my job this week!

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind comments.  Enjoy this beautiful day!

We are all like flowers that blooms or withered in the garden depending on how we take good care of our self. So do not let negativity pass through. Enjoy and be confident. Have a good day and visit my site for more information.
