What's Blooming in My Garden

Now that the weather has warmed up and my garden has begun to grow it is a busy time transplanting and taking care of it.  It's satisfying work and flowers make me happy!

After the daffodils are finished the azaleas and dogwood take center stage

Roses and Irises are have been in bloom for the last few weeks

Emily attended the homeschool prom and we took a few photos in our garden before she was off to dance the night away.  She looked so pretty and my garden did too!

This pretty pink azalea is almost as tall as Emily

Here's a close up of her prom hairstyle. She did the braids and pinning all by herself!  Isn't she clever? 

 I spied this sweet clever dove in her nest which she has made in the branches of the climbing rose

This photo shows how massive that climbing rose is.  It's scent is quite wonderful!

Another pretty heirloom climbing rose that grows in my garden is the Zephirine Drouhin pictured here.  It's very fragrant,  thornless and can handle some shade.  I grow a few different types of clematis on this trellis as well as morning glory and moonflowers which will bloom later.  That's a Nelly Moser Clematis with a few blooms nestled in the rose. 

Peonies and daylilies are the next lovely flowers that will be blooming in my garden.  
So watch out for my next garden post soon.
