Spring Inspiration

I have been enjoying the flowers in my garden so much that I had to share them with you.

I'll start with my flower garden in the front:

 It has been rare this spring to see blue skies so it was just so wonderful to have a sunny day that I had to take a picture of it.
 This orange lily was planted last year so I am happy it made it through the winter.
 I was thrilled to see that my lilac bush has buds. It didn't bloom last spring. I really missed its old fashioned blooms and heavenly scent last spring. I can hardly wait for it to bloom!
These orange tulips were planted the first year we moved here. That was 11 years ago. 
Here is a close up of the orange tulips. They are opened a bit more in this photo.
 There are three of these purple tulips and the pink and white one. I didn't know they were there until one fall I really trimmed the bush back that you see in the background and the next spring these tulips showed up. They had been covered all these years by the bush and never had enough sun to grow. So they were a nice surprise.
Some random tulips mixed in with the iris.
And here is the same tulips from another angle.

Now a few pictures from the garden in the backyard:
 I also planted these tulips when we first moved in. I love that they were a mixture of color . Those red an yellow ones are my favorite.
This tulip is so sweet.
 Well this wraps it up. I hope you enjoyed the spring show and get a little inspiration from all the colors.

I would like to know what your favorite spring flower is.


  1. Beautiful! My favorite spring flower is the tulip, although I love it when I see the crocuses come up, because they are the harbinger of all the goodness yet to come. :)

  2. Congrats of getting recognized on Cath's Moxie Fab World blog post! KUDOS!!!
