I took a step out into the garden this morning to take stock of what transpired during the night. The garden in spring is just filled with surprise.
This Clemantis is always a show stopper. This is it's third year in bloom and it is heavey laden with blossoms this year.
There is a Mama Cardinal sitting on a nest just above this birdbath. She has found a place in the red climbing rose that grows next to the Clemantis. I will try to get a picture once the baby is born. She's not happy with my presence, to say the least.
This ladder will soon be covered with Sweet Pea vine which is about a foot off the ground today. The plant comes back every year with the most beautiful pink flowers. In the meantime, I can enjoy the Foxglove in all it's glory.
My friend, Debbie gave me this lamb for my birthday a couple of years ago and I just love it. It always makes me stop and think of the Lamb of God. It greets me going in and coming out of the garden, an ever present reminder of the One who created it all. Blessings!
their flowers and decorations are beautiful! Regards, AngieReplyDelete
I'm waiting for my clematis to bloom. It should any time now.ReplyDelete
I also have a lamb in my garden. =)
That clematis is spectaculur. I haven't had much luck with them out here. I just don't think the winters are cold enough. It all balances out. I don't get snow in May but I also don't get clematis and peonies. :(ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness! You have such pretty flowers. I love clematis plants. thank you for sharing your wonderful photos.ReplyDelete
Your clematis and foxglove are gorgeous! God did indeed create a beautiful world!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous clematis. It almost looks like passion flower, it is a rainforest flower/vine. I have never seen foxglove be that full of flowers. These are gorgeous. Beautiful posts this weekend. Enjoyed all your wonderful words. Thanks for sharing...smiles...ReneeReplyDelete
