Backyard Beauty

I just got my socks all muddy going across the yard to take a pic of our first flowers of the season. Other than those that had bloomed under a rock. Yeah, I could have just put shoes on, but it wouldn’t have been as meaningful then right? Anyway, they are all just cell phone pics, so don’t be a hater.

This one is just a pretty shot from the other morning as I was conversing with some of my favorite bloggers. I love spring.

  1. Do you know what kind of flower that is? I’m pretty sure my mom grows the same thing in her yard.

  2. Oh! I have a Clematis ( umm, that word always sound dirty to me, wink wink), and when it blooms, I will send you a pic! A pic of the Flower, that grows outside my house, and not a pic of anything that sounds like ‘Clematis’!

  3. At least you weren’t left out there this time!

    I’m amazed by what pops up in my garden (if I can call it that, it’s a small courtyard) every year, I’ve never planted anything but they are always changing, then again my cat sitter is a florist so she probably does it once a year, but it’s still a nice suprise.

  4. Very pretty! Don’t you just love spring? We certainly do! Have been clearing, cleaning, and planting gardens, flowers, and seeds like mad this particular season after about a five year hiatus. We hope you enjoy the show! And ‘pooh’ on those socks; we go outside in bare feet and wade in the mud. Nothing like mud squishing through your toes – or the tickle of grass blades under your foot! Enjoy! Have fun. Admire the beauty, and as we often say: Pay attention to the little things, you’ll have a lot more fun. And you’ll never miss the big ones. But the delight in a ladybug or a foraging ant . . . yeah, we’re kind of a kid (soft smile; sly one at that: wink wink!). Have fun!

    • I love watching insects too. Last spring we had a spider make a web and leave babies in a strawberry patch. I went to pick the strawberries, and there were…hundreds of little spiders, streaming off like in Charolette’s Web. It was beautiful and fascinating.

  5. I love Clematis, my early bloomer isn’t yet but it should be soon. I really like the last photo, good shot! I love spring too. Spring. Is my new years, a time of new beginnings, fresh starts, and rebirth.
