Show and Tell Friday: A Walk Around My Yard










Kelli hosts Show & Tell Friday so I thought I'd participate this week by showing you all the blooming things around my yard. I took a stroll around the backyard last night and found all sorts of surprises. It's been raining a lot the past few days and all sorts of things are blooming and popping up!

My lilacs.

The rhubarb patch just went crazy all of the sudden.

Mmmmmm, those stalks look ready for a pie.

My tulips look great. Ignore the dandelion in the picture! ;-)

Emily thinks these look like peppermint candies.

This is where my compost pile was. They are either squash, pumpkin or cucumbers. I'm not sure but I'm going to let them go and see what happens!

Spinach.

Early lettuce. Obviously, this whole bed needs to be weeded. However, it is directly below our bluebird house and those little rascals try to attack me every time I'm around them.

My little pot of mint outside the kitchen door.

I'm not sure what these little guys are called but I think they're beautiful.

This bush had little red berries on it and most of the summer it's just leaves. However, I walked outside last week and found the entire bush covered with these beautiful, red blossoms.

Well, those are the sights around my yard. I love this time of the year and it's wonderful to walk out and get a whiff of lilacs and tulips.
