We had a very rainy April! It was one of the wettest months on record. However, May has been pretty dry. We are now enjoying the flowers that the rains from April helped produce! I thought I would share some views around my front yard. My back yard is blooming too, but I'll share that another time.
First of all, I'm very pleased with how our grass is doing. This is the time of year when it looks the best. Once the rain slows down, it starts to fade.
We basically have grass at the top of our yard and at the bottom. Since we're on a hill, we have landscaping along the hill. The top of our yard gets a lot of shade, so we planted fescue grass there.
What I love the most is my peony bush that is doing well this year. Here is a bud about to open.
Just two days later it looked like this!
I also like my knock-out roses. We have red and pink. For some reason, the pink ones haven't grown too much.
This bush was planted many years ago but this is the first year it has bloomed small white flowers on it. We're not quite sure what it's called either. We think it's a type of privot bush.
The three little green plants, below, are yellow day lilies that haven't yet bloomed.
Down by our mailbox, we have a mix of honeysuckle and roses.
We have bermuda grass planted at the bottom of our yard due to the full sun exposure. However, it hasn't greened up all the way yet.
I'll share the back yard next!
Thanks for stopping by.
