I have really enjoyed these last few days of playing in the yard and getting things trimmed as well as planted. The yard is bursting with color right now with the roses in full bloom and other things getting ready. I love the spring, life bursting out at the seams everywhere. Its the time of year when all my past efforts are still paying off. Things that have sat quietly are now screaming for my attention with their colorful flowers. I am trying to capture as much of it as I can in my garden journal, taking the time to label and try and show both the close up as well as an more expansive view. The big fountain is filled with potted plants, flowers and they are trying to come back after the winter of neglect, I may need to replace.
