In My Garden

We had our first real Springtime storm last night. While tornado warnings were sounding in the surrounding counties, we had 50 mile per hour winds, pea size hail and sheets of rain. Have you ever seen rain coming down in sheets? It goes sideways across your lawn. Some of my flowers look a little torn and tattered but all in all everything looks pretty good.




We planted this Japanese Lilac four years ago . This is the first year it has bloomed!



I think my lettuce is almost ready to pick. What do you think?



Last summer my husband planted this yarrow plant. I thought it looked somewhat like a weed. It's much prettier this year.



One of my favorite plants in the garden is lavender. I love the beautiful purple color and amazing fragrance.

  2. I'm so glad that your garden was not hurt by the storm. It looks beautiful. I can almost smell the fragrance of your lavender and the yellow of the yarrow is one of the prettiest colors in a garden. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary
