Princess Garden

This is my new area for mostly my Japanese Red Maples and other smaller bushes that hopefully will grow to be much larger. In the little waterfall fixture that doesn't work any more I discovered a tiny spring frog in the fixture. Just as I finished the new garden I heard her start to sing. I got a tear then and named it "Princess Garden". It really sets the back yard off and shows up so beautiful as you drive up the driveway.
I can hardly wait for it to develope and will probably spend a lot of time making sure all is OK. I seen a couple other spring frogs in the pump house the other day, so I just may have to catch them and put them in the new garden. And they all lived happily ever after. LOL

I'm keeping my promise

As I promised; here is the picture of my "Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate" and my Orchid Lilies gone wild. It is only mid-May and usually they are only about six to twelve inches tall but this year they are already over three feet tall. I would dare wager that they will go past the eves at this rate. Any Takers?
Last year one of the blooms on the orchid lily was almost twelve inches across. Also if you go back to my post "Spring has sprung" you will see the same spot only with my Easter flowers just blooming. A very drastic change wouldn't you say. Ahhhh my mommy and grandma would be so proud...
While I am thinking about it; Mother's Day we had a tornado touch down less than four miles for me. The reason I say we is because my son, on the phone from Michigan talked me through the radar because I couldn't get anything on TV. All Hail and lightening broke loose and we hung up and I went to my safe spot. It may have been the scariest Mother's Day but I feel it was pretty sweet too.

Happy Mother's day

For all the mothers I am wishing
That hubby did not choose to go fishing.
for this is our day
and home he will stay.
Or no meal on his plate will we be dishing!

Just happy

My flowers are growing like there is no tomorrow and looking so healthy. My first rose is now in bloom and the "Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate" and Orchid Lilies are doing spectacular. the stalks are strong and heigth great. I think I stated before that there were so many plants this year. Someone up there loves me and is watching over and helping my flowers do so well. The weather is cooperating and we are having a few showers and also finally some heavy dew in the morning. One lady asked about my flowers and I just said, I talk to them and tell them they are going to be the prettiest flowers around. They respond by showing off their beauty for me. See,!!! what other tales can I tell today? Oh yes , the reason there is not a photo of my beauties is because I discovered the batteries are dead in my camera. I promise I will replace the batteries as soon as I can. I haven't seen any sign of my calla lily yet, remember "Can You See Me" from last year. I hope the moles that invaded this winter didn't get it. I would really rather not get hostile but might do so if I don't see the calla lily soon.
