Garden Tour

It may just be my imagination, but it seems like the perennials in our garden are the prettiest they have been in a long time.  I invite you to take a stroll with me.

Wildflowers amongst the spent daffodils, mountain laurel, peonies, and Knockout Roses.

We see the rhododendrons this way from the house ...

... but the boaters on the lake see this ...

I entertained this crazy bunch of ladies from our Nashville church last Saturday (I'm second from left).

I put a bouquet of Iris on the bartop where the gentlemen dined ...

... and an arrangement of peonies and rhododendron on the ladies' table.

The astilbe are blooming in the shade and we will soon have a plethora of white Annabelle hydrangeas.  I need to get the pots at the garage doors ready to receive some fresh plants so a trip to Lowes will be on the weekend's agenda.


  1. Your garden is looking beautiful this spring, Libby! I really like the rhododendrons - I don't think they grow around here - at least I've never seen them. Fun bouquets for entertaining, too!

  2. Your peonies are way ahead of ours. There are tight buds on all of my plants. We have another cool week coming up so I wonder if ours will bloom by Memorial day.

  3. Your spring flowers are so pretty! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Floral abundance! My peonies have buds but they won't bloom for a couple of weeks. The early iris are out. Planting vegetables is my garden task this week.

  5. Lucky you, to have your yard ready to entertain those guests!
