I am just so impressed with how well these tulips have done this year. I have never had tulips bloom for me before. These are just gorgeous!
The fountain got a good cleaning today and looks nice now too and as you can see in the background some of the grass has come back this year. I did put out more grass seed too this spring so hopefully we will eventually have a nice yard.
These may not look like pretties but I hope they will be eventually. If you look real close you can see the little fiddleheads of the ferns that I planted by the pond, just coming out now. Ferns are pretty to me. I have two different varieties of ferns that I planted by the pond. The other one is coming up too.
Outside the fence there are more tulips. These apparently are yellow (I always forget what I planted).
No pretties here yet but the taller of the bushes here is the lilac colored rose bush that I transplanted from the other side of the house last year. It had almost no leaves then but looks great now. There is also a small pink rose bush in this bed and the other plants are ranunculus that I planted from bulbs this spring as well. I have never had any luck with those either so I do hope they bloom.
There are other flowers blooming that I haven't got pictures of yet and I have started to work on the vegetable garden again as well. It is completely overgrown with chick weed but the chickens had a nice feed this morning when I took some of weeds from the garden up to them.
