May Flowers

April showers brings.....
May Flowers!

With all the rain and cool weather in April, it was good for all the plants.  I have been enjoying time outside working in my flower beds....but not enjoying all the sore joints in my body afterwards!
 Here is where I started with a new bed, it was just outside my patio and didn't grow grass too good...so
I turned it into a flower bed.

This is it finished .
oops didn't get the blocks straight!

I found this large butterfly at Hobby Lobby back in March on sale.

 Roses are one of my favorites.

Love the Japanese Iris in all it's color and glory!

Always have to include a teacup, even if I can't drink from it!


The Angel Trumpet is coming up, I really do have it planted too close to my Knock Out Roses, just have to keep it cut back away from it as it grows.

Hostas  doing good!

These are the Daylilies from my Mother's garden, when she passed away, my sisters and I got some.
They grow pretty each year.

I had a few visitors while I worked, they are always welcomed! 
The Brown Thrasher is the Georgia State Bird and the Cardinal loves to feed on the Safflower seeds.
Can you see the Lizard on the fence?
Here's a closer look,

Have a Blessed Day
Enjoy all of God's gifts!
