Oh...I'm jealous. It appears as though summer has already hit Southern Cal. Brown hills, over 100 degree temps. Bleh. The photos are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!
Oh. My. Gosh. It's gorgeous! I am so jealous - I live in TX, where no one bothers with flowers because they don't last in our two-three weeks of spring, and the grass and trees are only green for about a month before turning a sickly sort of yellow brown. :( For a girl raised in Ohio, that's very, very sad. Thanks for the pictures! Enjoy your beautiful day. ~Lita
Love the wisteria!
Wow! It's a little Eden. How do you ever come out of your backyard in spring? Do you go out to write in the garden house? It has been beautiful here in NM too. I'm really blessed by my six-year-old who gasps with wonder every time she sees a new tree budding.
Heh-heh. Rosslyn, I have to laugh. That "garden house" you're referring to is the gazebo surrounding our hot tub. Yes, the hot tub (sans gazebo in the book) that gave rise to the infamous first chapter in Violet Dawn.However we do have three decks that aren't in the pictures. So there's plenty of places to sit outside.
What are those purple flowers? I bet they're something that won't grow in Colorado. It's nice to see spring is happening somewhere. We're just recovering from another few feet of snow, lots of mud and still-bare trees.Are those purple flowers smelly (like pretty kind of smelly)? I love frangrant flowers. My lilac is still naked. :(
Darcie, if you mean the purple flowers on the hill, I don't know. They don't have fragrance. The purple on the trellis is wysteria, which is fragrant. Smells like star jasmine.
Wysteria will not grow in Colorado. :( Well, I'm assuming because I have never in my life seen it here.Your yard is gorgeous!
I'm from NC which is about 80% consumed by wysteria during the Spring. It IS beautiful, but if you don't prune it and stay ahead of it, it is a beast! It will take over everything in your yard and kill it! I'm sure there's a sermon in there somewhere... Brandilyn, it looks like you've done a lovely job of taming it. With so many flowers in your yard, do you find pollen to be a problem?
Wow, what breath taking pictures! Such a beautiful backyard you have or are some of these shots of a view from your backyard? Whatever, it must be nice to be surrounded by such beauty al the time!
Sarah, we get lots of pollen way before the flowers come. Lots from the trees. Karen, this is our own backyard. I just couldn't get in every part of it.
Your garden is absolutely breath-taking!
