Back home

We are back home in Indiana.  It has been a crazy couple of weeks since arriving, but we are finally getting into the swing of things I think,  I have not had any time to do any crafting, but yesterday I filled in my May, June and July calender and discovered I best get busy making cards,  I think I have 16 birthdays during those 2 months,  So, between flower planting and house keeping, I need to take time for cards.  I have at least 6 kids cards to make, and I find those the hardest,  How about you?

I have been working in my flowers0 to get them in shape.  Last fall, I cleaned and thinned them out, so it has been easier, but my goodness I think the weeds grow right behind me as I hoe.  Below are some of the beauties that are blooming now.

 Jon and Whiskers riding around on my garden chair.  I use it to pull my garden wagon around which is filled with my tools, fertilizer, water buckets and everything I use in the garden.  I will get a picture of it later.

Bulgaria, blooms early and has beautiful foliage.  Not sure that is the correct name.
 My first Lupine opening up this morning,  I have about 30 plus plants that have self-seeded and will be gorgeous next year,  A plant seems to only last about 3 years though.

 Grape Hyacinths.  Very early and makes a gorgeous border. 
 My first Lilac bouquet.  Makes the house smell so wonderful!!!
Primrose that I brought from Mom's garden,  I could never get them to grow while she was alive.  I know she would be super pleased as she loved them and wanted so much for me to be able to grow them.
 Another Primrose from Mom's.
A new tulip for me.

New tulips.  Aren't the beautiful! 

 These new tulips look like small peonies!

 Whiskers waiting patiently  for a ride.

Tree Peony!
