Over in one corner, we have a bush that Mom and Dad transplanted a few years ago. It's doing really great in it's new locale. I'm just learning about the different plants and stuff. Let's take a look at this one, shall we?
Mom said it's called a Snowball Viburnum.
|"Snowball, eh? Hmm!"
OK, so in addition to learning the name, I also learned that some snowballs are more refreshing than others.
Note to Mom: I would have spit it out; you did not need to grab it out of my mouth. Pretty much.
Let's move on.
Also in our front garden, we have some special Lily of the Valley plants! They're PINK but that's only part of what makes them special!

They were a gift from our blogging friends Mitch and Molly -- or actually they were a gift from Mitch and his angel-sister Maggie to the original members of the Ao4! Isn't that great?!? It's a wonderful reminder of them right in our own garden!
Here I am, sitting in front of them:

They are very beautiful - but also are toxic to dogs and cats. That's why #1, they're in the front garden rather than the back and #2, why Mom doesn't let us get close enough to them to take a little nibble. Because we ALL know I would. I can't help it. As my great-sister Stormy often said, "I am a Siberian Husky and the world is my salad bar". Check this link out - not only does Stormy mention the salad bar thing, but it would appear my great-brother Zimmie and I have even more in common than I thought! Ha roo roo roo!
I hope you enjoyed a little look around the front garden!
