life is blooming…

y’all have been reading about how life is blooming in my heart lately.  what is precious about that is that life is also blooming around my little cottage home.  thanks to the teaching of my amazing mother, i have a green thumb (i think).  and, i LOVE when my flowers are blooming.

so, today, in honor of spring and life, here are the pictures of what is blooming around me.  i hope that you are taking all the time you can to watch the world burst forth with color, textures, growth and the songs of birds.  if you aren’t, come on over to my house.  i’ll hand you a beer and we can sit in the garden.  you won’t be able to miss it then.

the beautiful vine (carolina jessamine) blooms these precious yellow flowers....

 

this is the orchid that i cut down last year and helped it to rebloom. LOVE that i was able to do that.

i recieved these from two precious friends for my birthday and they just keep blooming!!!

bearded iris in the garden...they look like evening gowns and smell absolutely delicious...

the japanese maple that i left under the house after i thought i'd killed it. it came back to life. i planted it last year and this year, well...it is gorgeous.

 

violas and ajuga (both purple...which i love) blooming in the front bed. violas are like dainty pansies...

azaleas and violas...also in the front bed...

clematis blooming on the side porch. i also have this on my mailbox but it hasn't bloomed yet...

p.s. – i know i said that my next post would be on community but i haven’t had time to write it yet.  🙂  and, i didn’t want y’all to miss out on all of this beauty…
