Day lilies

I wish you could see these lilies in person.  They are so pretty.  We have had a lot of rain this Spring and the garden has taken a beating.  Those new potatoes Hubs was growing in the hay bales didn't make.  The greens, peas didn't do so well.  Waiting to see how squash and broccoli are going to do.  Onions are good. So are tomatoes.
In the mean time, please enjoy my photos of the day. Ya'll have a blessed day.

My roses are in full bloom right now.
This is my favorite time of the year because of all the different flowers we have blooming.
 We try to plant multiple flowers that will bloom each month of the year.

Spring has sprung

Not much going on here.  We had a lot of rain and flooding in Shreveport, La. and parts of east Texas where I live.  The rain did a lot of damage. Almost a year ago, they had an over flowing Red River in Shreveport that resulted in months of floods and clean up.   Our youngest son is a fireman/EMT with south Bossier parish in La.  Everyone worked for days and days to rescue and evacuate people.  They were up to their necks in water.  So thankful for the first responders. On a good note, the rain has helped my flowers to bloom.

The pond is really full

New flower bed Hubs has planted.  Not finished yet. The front has blue bonnet plant which will bloom in Spring.  I planted mixed color tulips. More later when the roses are blooming.  Hope you have a wonderful Spring.
