Bloom Time!

I'm sharing more of my springtime blooms with you.  I hope you enjoy...

Azalea in front yard

Flowering bush in front (don't know what kind)
EDIT:  After sleuthing around google, I believe this bush is called firethorne.  It has these flowers in the spring and orange berries in the fall.  It also has lots of thorns.

"Changeling rose" former carpet roses but now they climb!

Irises in front

Lambs' ears in front

Miniature rose I bought myself because I deserve it!  :)

Pansy in chair planter.  I "rescued" the planter from a burned out house.

The rose bush was a rose tree but it broke in a storm.  Looks like a bush is growing from it but it doesn't have any buds.  We'll have to wait a bit to see if it gets flowers.  The pot in front of it has lilies and I'll plant another flower in with it

Snowball bush.  The "snowballs" are rather flat this year!

  1. The flowers are bee-u-tee-ful! I especially love the lilacs in your header. Lilacs are my favorite.

  2. Thank you! I love lilacs too. One of my bushes came to KY with us as a twig from Illinois and it has really grown in the last 8 years. They have a wonderful scent too. :)

  3. I love all of your blooms they are just beautiful, I bet your yard looks like a paradise, Im not sure what kind of bush that is either and how sweet of you to rescue the plant from burned house lucky plant, thanks so much for sharing!!

  4. It was actually just the plant stand I rescued unless you count getting the pansy at WalMart as a rescue lol!
