Spring Flowers & Tagged

I just love the smell of my Hyacinths when they're blooming! Here is a photo of just one of them that I planted in front of my garage a few years ago. I definitely need to buy some more! I just wish they lasted longer than they do. That's the only thing I don't like about most bulbs.....I wish they would bloom all summer long.

Jim & I spent Easter doing some much-needed gardening in our flower beds. We completely tore out the flower bed on the side of the garage that had Daylillies planted in it. The previous owners planted them & while they were pretty, the flower bed was starting to get over grown with grass as well. So we just decided to dig it all out & start fresh. I'm not sure what we're going to plant in there yet, but it'll probably be some type of flowering bushes. I wish Gardenias would grow in Michigan.....I love the scent of those! I'd love to have some Crape Myrtle trees as well......it's things like this that I really miss about Virginia!

I was tagged again & this looks like a fun one to do, so here are my answers:

Those flowers are gorgeous. I have a new yard this year and I am still trying to figure out what I want to plant. I can't wait to start. Our clean-up starts tomorrow.

Thanks for the tip on the batteries;)
