Its early Spring in the garden and all the plants seem "pregnant" with promise. The azalea blooms are about to open. The Irises are sending forth their green, pointy spikes. The clematises have started running on the ground. The daylillies have come out from their winter sleep.
For Show and Tell Friday at Kelli's House this week, I am showing bits and pieces of my yard and home that are harbingers of Spring and Summer.
Seeds bought at Dollar General:
Sunflowers in a decorative watering can bought at Dollar General:
The last camelia flower on the ground underneath the bush rooted from my grandmother's camelia bush by my mother.
A window box with a few pansies peeking out. Soon I will fill this with other Summer blooming plants.
Our pewter Wolfpack Crossing sign. (Hey at this point in the 2009/2010 football season, we are undefeated!) :o)
An old fashioned Nandina Bush, also from my grandmother's yard. It is heavy with the red berries.
A pot of pansies and another plant that made it through the winter there and is now blooming.
My little "welcome" rock.
A Spring flag. We reuse it every year and its beginning to fray.
A Garden Fairy reading her book.
Another pot with a few pansies. There are perrenials in this pot that will come up and bloom in the Summer. I like to tuck in a few other plants or sow a couple of seeds.
A Spring flag, rain guage and garden statue.
