We have a beautiful little Japanese Maple on one side. On the other side we have a water fountain, surrounded by hostas, a Lenten rose that never blooms, but provides lots of green, and some painted ferns, just starting to show now.
The last 3 pictures show our little patch of trillium, a wildflower so named because it has 3 of everything, leaves and petals! They grow native to the woods just down the street.
Sadly, we just had to take out that hemlock in the corner of the second picture. It just doesn't get enough light there, and it got very leggy. We will be putting up some lattice in its place, to hide the drainpipe in that corner, hopefully training up some ivy or shade-loving vine, and adding some decorative birdhouses here and there along the lattice.
Hope you enjoyed this little spring tour!
I've also changed up my blog background and header again. The lilacs are fading, so it's time to move on! I love robin's egg blue so this background really spoke to me, and I chose a picture of some lilies-of-the-valley for my header, as they mean Mother's Day to me.......hope everyone has a wonderful Mother's Day this weekend!
