Watching It All Begin ...

I've been watching the gardens transform ...


This little friend will be our tour guide today.


One particular flower that sends me swooning is the 'Lilac Perfection' tulip.


The beauty of spring is finally here.


Magnolia blooms ...




Excuse me, I think I'm about to sneeze!


The sweet fragrance of 'Purple Beauty' phlox.


Delicate dangling hearts.


Muscari, also known as grape hyacinths, have burst forth and scattered. 


'Andre Rieu' is always breathtaking.


Blossoms from the pear tree glow against the blue sky.



 It's time for me to meet up with some of my other friends. 


We hope you enjoyed your tour and will come back often.


Have a lovely weekend.  Happy Mother's Day to all those fantastic mom's out there!

The flowers are lovely but it is your little chipmunk that has me laughing. He is just adorable. I enjoy the antics of my backyard squirrels but have yet to acquire a chipmunk buddy! :)

Oh, a chipmunk! So sweet! I have never seen one, don’t think we have them here in Britain. We do have squirrels though, and boy do we have them! They have been doing a lot of damage in my garden but I do enjoy watching them.
Lovely to see your spring flowers, it’s like seeing spring all over again. It’s all finished here in London, magnolias, tulips and cherry blooms - all gone, now it’s all about the summer blooms.

Beautiful! Our garden started early and I'm transitioning into summer flowers! It's fascinating! Lovely post! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
Kathy

Patty Antle said...

Wow, you have some lovely blossoms in your yard, Donna. And a cute squirrel too!

Beth said...

Your tulips, pear tree, and magnolias are just gorgeous, Donna. Happy spring!

I just realized I hadn't been by to visit you in a while! I can see why you favor those tulips- they are beautiful! My magnolia is in bloom but this year only about 1/3 of the tree bloomed. I love the color pink in yours- I don't think I've ever seen that color around here. Don't you just love that fragrance from the phlox- I'd like to bottle it up! Can you believe I don't have a bleeding heart plant- I need to fix that- they are so pretty! The pear tree looked fantastic! I lost a coral bark japanese maple from the harsh winter. I'm looking for something to replace it. Love your little "guide" that joined the tour!
