April sure did live up to the old saying of April Showers Bring May Flowers. We got more than our share of rain in April. I am not complaining because the garden and everything in it has responded well.
Come on in and have a quick look around.
The grass paths are green as can be. Every plant around is greening up too.
There is a bit of whimsy on the patio this year. I don't normally get too excited about tropical plants but since we went to Costa Rica this spring the Cloud Forests, Rain Forests and tropical plants in general gave me the inspiration to try to make the patio a tropical paradise. It is coming along.
The green plastic parrot planter reminded me of the Green Macaws we saw.
Some of the other paths are looking quite jungle like.
It is just so comforting to see all this green after a long winter.
Flower beds are filling up. Golden Alexander is so pretty with it's color of sunshine on a cloudy day.
Out front there is lots of blooms happening.
The Iris parade has begun.
The weeping spruce is making cones.
I hope you all are able to get out in the garden to watch all the early spring commotion. Just sit back like Annie and enjoy the surroundings in between chores.
