Blooms

 My first pepper.

 Aren't the first signs of vegetables exciting? Maybe my life is just really boring?

 My okra is off to a slow start.

 This is the wisteria I thought was dead.  I don't think anything can kill this stuff.

 My season predictors....Oakleaf Hydrangeas.  They bloom white in June, they turn pink in July, burgundy by September and then you know Fall has arrived.

 Clematis are about to bloom.

 Climbing hydrangeas.

 Peonies.


 All of the rhododendrons are blooming now.

 My kitchen window early this morning.


 A candy corn vine.

Everything looks beautiful! and I do love those first vegetables showing :-) I'm far behind on my tomatoes though, still no flowers here.

Not even a winter in zone 4 can kill a wisteria :-) The roots survives and the plant just start all over again :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

Your kitchen window is lovely. I have a lot of stained glass here. LOVE your peonies and rhododendrons.

all your work in your garden is paying off - looks wonderful. Here I have piles to pick up of cutting back - putting the garden to sleep for winter while yours is waking up seems so funny aye. I didn;t know you could get Black eyed Susan as a vine. LOVE LOVE your stained glass window!

A blessing to see the veggies and flowers coming in to bloom. I especially love hydrangeas, guess i missed the fact of climbing hydrangeas! How wonderful.

Happy day!

Joyce, you have such a wonderful variety of plants and flower and I love those stacked stones. That is one of my favorite looks. Springtime at your home is a glorious time.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a photo of that window - if you've posted it previously, I missed it. It is stunning!
