  1. Gorgeous!! Link this up to Garden Tuesday, please!!!!

  2. Your garden is lovely as is your hunter.

  3. Pretty pretties!! I'd love to live in your garden!

  4. Did you lay those big stones in the pathway?
    Does Annie ever keep on walking right off your land?

  5. love that rhodi color! so vibrant!!!! xoox, tracie

  6. Love the photos and your flowers are gorgeous!!

  7. Found you on the Garden Tuesday. You have such beautiful flowers.

  8. I think I've commented on your green thumb before...remember? When I said my knowledge goes to the extent of, "I love those purple ones! And the blue!" Your gardening skills amaze me, Les, but I'll have to stick to enjoying them virtually. I'll never, ever be able to grow anything like these!

  9. Pam - Thanks so much. It's been a gorgeous spring in Nebraska!

    Kathy - Aww, thanks. She's a pretty girl.

    Nancy - Thanks! You probably wouldn't have enjoyed it this past weekend. VERY hot & humid until it poured. The evenings were lovely, though.

    Nan - The walkway from the white fence/gate to the lawn was here when we bought the house. We added the other walkway that curves around the deck to the side yard. The yard is fenced all the way around, so Annie can't wander away. However, we do let her out in the driveway and front yard (which isn't fenced) when we're out there. She stays in the yard unless she sees a cat she wants to chase. ;)

    Kelly - Thank you!

    Tracie - This is the prettiest it's ever looked. We had such a mild winter and my garden seems to appreciate that! Thanks for stopping by. I'll have to pop over and visit your blog.

    Staci - Thank you so much. It's been a joy to look outside and see all the gorgeous blooms.

    Lisa - Thank you for your kind words and for visiting my blog.

    Bellezza - I've been very lucky with my garden! I don't do much in the way of fertilizing and pruning, and if it doesn't survive the elements, I don't fret about it. Thanks for your nice comment!

  10. The Rhododendron is absolutely stunning! Your whole garden is. We're already too hot down here so I didn't plant any flowers this year. Was lucky that we didn't have a frost to kill my begonias from last year.

    is that a reading girl I spy amongst the flowers?!

  11. Trish - I have a Rhododendron in the front yard, as well. They both looked amazing this year. I need to remember to fertilize them so they'll do well again next year.

    I bought a bunch of annuals today to put in pots, as well as in the flower beds. I really dislike spending $$ on annuals every year, but once they're in the ground, I'm glad I did once July and August roll around (and the perennials are finished for the year).

    Yes, that's a reading girl. I also have a little reading boy. I think you can see him in one of my earlier garden posts. The reading girl is in my blog profile picture.
