I'm cheering for these plants!

Burst Forth!

This is one of our peony bushes. I'm super excited about this one because we have had it for several years and have never gotten any flowers from the bush.

This is a gardenia tree. It was my mom's Mother's Day present from my dad. It sits on our back porch. We are anxiously awaiting gorgeous smelling blooms!

pics from our yard

I call this our "girl tree" because it is hot pink in the spring and so gorgeous!

Snapdragons....I am still pondering why we've never had these in our yard before. They are simply stunning.



One of the front pots. Not necessarily a good picture but you get the idea.
It was so sunny outside when I took these pics that I couldn't see the lcd screen.
Since this picture, my mom has added more vines around the bottom.
