New Faces

 I have some new faces blooming in the garden and some others preparing to show their faces.

On the front porch and in the front porch garden

a yellow begonia, one of two in pots,

pink tulips

red geranium

yellow daisies

A volunteer on the side of the house I hated to pullout

spider wort (I think)

On the deck pots are filled.

including this hanging pot sharing the hook with the hummingbird feeder.

In the deck garden the first bloom of the bleeding heart I just planted this spring.

In the maple tree garden I moved the yellow pansies that had been on the front porch to this pot.

In that garden are some blooms to reveal soon.  Not sure what this one is but there are several.

Columbine is full of buds.

Here's a full view of that garden bed with splashes of color from marigolds newly planted.

In the hosta garden this lambs ear is filling out nicely.

This mammoth hosta had a head start by being planted last fall.  There are an assortment of others that were given to me that I quickly planted.  As they get bigger their final resting places may change.

These pansies from last year wintered over and are blooming in the hosta bed.

In the sculpture bed the mammoth hostas I planted are doing well.

The Inukshuk has been recreated using landscape adhesive (Thanks Tom).  Doesn't quite look the same but is sturdier. 

This new little stone bench is awaiting a pot TBD.

The yard and gardens in almost their entirety.  Never had a lawn so big before.

And the view to the west with that solitary white tree

blooming on the hill.  Another new face!

Update: a couple of posts ago I complained how Blogger mixes up my photo inserts. Faith who commented mentioned that once she uploads the photos she deselects them and then selects them in the order she wants them to appear.  I tried that with this post and it worked.  Thank you, Faith!
