We have been having some glorious weather here in the NE hence my absence from the computer world. There is nothing like being outside in the sunshine with your hands in the dirt planting annuals or putting in some new perennials. Here are some of my early bloomers. Lupine is growing profusely in my front garden even though I pulled a lot of it out last fall. I love it but it can take over so it shall get another thinning after it finishes blossoming.
I have several varieties of columbine, I love this new white one that I put in this year. So delicate and lovely. Here are a few more.
My coral bells haven’t blossomed yet but I love the rich color of the foliage.
I put in lots of petunias. This is a new variety that is supposed to spread nicely. I’ll do before and after pictures later on in the season to see if they do what they are supposed to do.
Hummmmm…bunnies in the garden, the best kind they don’t eat the plants!
Even the weeds are pretty, I love these little buttercups.
These yellow daisies bloom all summer and fall as long as I deadhead them.
My bleeding heart is a bit skimpy this year, maybe it was the rough winter we had.
I always put something in the ole’ bean pot. Actually I would rather it was some nice bean hole beans with lots of molasses and cooked in the ground! Oh, and don’t forget the nice hot biscuits!
Summer also brings fun times with the boys. Miss T and her best friend K come over and ride often which they love. Today they were riding Lil’ Bud who is 23 years old and such a good boy for kids to ride.
K is just starting to ride and is building her confidence. Miss T is going along for support. :o)
Miss T loves to canter. Whoops! Got to get those hands and heels down but the lead is right! :o)
Hugs for Bud.
And nice scratching too.
Good job K, she’s riding by herself now!
Every horse deserves to be loved by a little girl!!!!
Yesterday Miss T and I went trail riding, she rode Kipper and I rode Lil’ Bud. I wish I had had my camera as it was beautiful out in the woods. Next time!
