The Yard's A Bloom!

 Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Today is thankful Thursday.  Today I'm thanking the Lord for the beautiful colors in my yard.  I took all (but 2 ) of these pictures this morning. 

The ever faithful and hardy Petunias!

I caught this in the morning before they open up completely.  (another Petunia in the background)

(I took this the other day in full sunlight)

A pretty yellow rose that was transplanted years ago from a dear friends yard. 

A Dahlia from the front yard.

A gorgeous Hydrangea! Love the colors.

My pretty and most favorite rose in my yard.

This is a Dahlia with some lillies in the background.  My uncle gave me the bulbs and wasn't sure what was going to show up!! (ha!) 

This is a Rock Rose bush (I personally don't care for it in my yard - it has a tendency to take over but dh likes it so..... It is pretty when it's blooming.

This Wisteria is blooming a second time, I didn't do the planting or any research on this but it always seems to bloom once in the early spring and then again in the summer.  It could be that 2 different species was planted because we also have a white blossomed one that is beautiful with the purple in the spring.

Thanks for taking time out to visit my flower garden, I hope you enjoyed the tour!
This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.  (and I'll be thankful, too!)
Take time and smell the roses!

  2. So beautiful, Natalie! I love rock roses. . .such pretty flowers and they smell so woodsy. Your others flowers are beauties too! Is that yellow rose a rambler/climber. I have one that looks similar and it's name is High Noon for the red strip straight up noon, I guess! Blessings!
