Spring in Our Garden

Virginia bluebells, woodland poppy, and lungwort

Crabapple in bloom, hostas coming up

Muscari

Flowering quince in the herb garden

Love those snowdrops: need to plant more!

Viola planted from seed

Couldn't resist instant color - Knock-Out Rose

Pretty peach daff.


This is my most favorite time of the year - the time I wait for all the rest of the year! I love that soft green just coming on, the blooming trees, noisy mating birds, and best of all, the spring peepers. We can hear them from the creek across the back field. Of course that also means the louder frogs in our pond (and our unopened pool!) But I don't mind. We look for the eggs and then the tadpoles. I love nature!

Smaller male on female. See the strings of eggs?
 To end this post I will share what I saw when I went outside this morning. Five huge vultures perching on our barn. They look rather menacing, don't they?

Your Indiana spring is in full bloom, Cindy--what gorgeous spots of color you have. I love the peach colored daffodil--will have to invest in some bulbs this fall :)

Keep sending your warm sunny weather east to me!

You have a great green thumb! Come south for awhile, and I'll let you give me some guidance.:-) Hugs, Nellie

Love getting a spring peek at your gorgeous gardens, Cindy! Everything is so pretty. Spring peepers are the most wonderful sound! Amazing photos of the frogs and the vultures. Have fun playing in the dirt :) Hugs xo Karen

Dear Cindy,
Thanks a lot for your kind words on my blog and thanks a lot for sharing your garden picutres. Too! And last but not least, congratulations to your new grandchild! I am sure the hole family is enjoying this special time with the little one. And yeas, May is always my favourite time of the year too (before the head of the summer months arrives).
Happy weekend, happy sewing and happy gardening!
Warm wishes from Germany
Anita
