They surround the Purple Ash tree, along with some Purple Emperor Sedum and a Fountain Grass. Want another look at them? I'll stay up here on the deck and send Mom down the stairs; I've already had a lot of exercise today!
|"I'll wait here, Mom; you run down the bazillion steps to the yard, OK?"|
I'm sure she doesn't mind.
Here's a more "normal" view of the lilacs, taken from down in the yard:
Aren't they pretty?
Oh! And it's a relatively calm day, so let's have another go at the Yorktown Snowflower Tree!
Can you see the "snow" this time? Cool, isn't it?
And while Mom is down there, here is a special effects photo of her favorite part of the garden:
There's not much in bloom up there right now, but the Zebra grasses are coming in, and so is the sedum. Can you see Mom's watering can? She just put in some Purple Coneflowers, so hopefully they'll come in this summer!
That's all I've got for you! I hope our tour of the gardens gave you a little bit of serenity!
You guys have such a bea-woootiful yard! I love the lilacs...we have some here but they are not blooming just yet. Have a "serene" Sunday!
Snow covered tree. That is very puzzling to the Mango.ReplyDelete
Hey Dave! Any room on that deck for me? I like to hang out a lot just like you.
Your yard is so pretty Dave! We're feeling very serene after that lovely tour!ReplyDelete
Your yard is so beautiful. None of our lilacs are even close to blooming yet. A couple more weeks until I get to sniff them.ReplyDelete

You guys are so lucky. You have the most beautiful garden and yard. We only have fake grass and lots of gravel. My Vickie says you cant' have 50 dogs every day and have a nice yard. But we did set aside a place for our peas an tomatoes this year. If we can just keep the transients from peeing on them when they walk by.ReplyDelete
(another story for another day)
Can't wait to see your place in full bloom. I bet the lilacs are filling the air with beautiful smells.
I loved the tour!ReplyDelete
Kisses and hugs
Beautiful! Now who does all the keep up work?ReplyDelete
Your garden is so pretty. How does you mom keep it so pretty with you guys running around in it?
Keep sending pictures, we really enjoy it.
Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack
Oh I can smell those lilacs from here. Your yard is so incredible. You guys must put in a ton of hours helping your MOM. Thanks for the serene views.ReplyDelete
You all sure do have a beautiful yard and view. :)ReplyDelete
Your garden is so much nicer than mine!ReplyDelete
Oh Mr Dave! My human just goes all swoony looking at your garden!ReplyDelete
She was gardening yesterday and Delta was being naughty by sampling all the soil, I was helping her by laying down. i think laying down is always the most helpful thing I can do really.
your yard looks beautiful!ReplyDelete
Benny & Lily
Umm...you didn't show us where your holes are? Are you not allowed to help with the landscaping?ReplyDelete
Think you got room for one more Sibe there?ReplyDelete
Not sure when i'll arrive though..LOL!
enjoy your day!
Your gardens are just beautiful! There isn't a blade of grass out of place!ReplyDelete
So do you rent your mom out for gardening? Our yard is lucky to have grass in it!ReplyDelete
