The fields across the road have been planted with corn. Wish that fellow would mow his ditches more.
Ted mows our lawn at 3 inches. That helps the grass thicken and helps keep weeds out.
I spotted this little visitor through the blinds.
My emerald hosta is growing. It will take over this area.
This is a coral bell plant. I love the colors , from green to burgundy .
This is our dwarf Japanese maple. One of my all time favorite trees. We had a green one, I have tried to keep going for 4 years. This past winter finally killed it off. The trees have all leafed out now . All the perennials are growing taller. Of course we have had plenty of rain and very warm temperatures for May....in the eighties. I am not crazy for that kind of heat. It's too soon.
Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend. XO
Spring happened so fast this year! We went from snowbanks to 80-degree heat in about a week. Love the coral bell plant.ReplyDelete
Hi Jo, Thanks for coming by. I hated the snowbanks, but I am not a big fan of hot weather. I guess I like 65-70 degrees the best.. I need to move to Hawaii. :):) I will drop by your blog to visit. Blessings to you and yours, xoxo,SusieReplyDelete
Love that Japanese maple! Wish we had one. We've nothing planted here yet; waiting to till the garden space once more; rain yesterday afternoon. xo NellieReplyDelete
Nellie, It seems the rain is putting some gardens behind schedule. My daughter got her family garden plant last weekend. She said she plant cantaloupe this morning. I did notice the farmers were planting corn way into the night around here. This rainy weekend will keep them out of the fields. Hope you can get your garden in before long. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
such beautiful photos, your lawn looks wonderful!ReplyDelete
thank you Laurie, we work at it. hope you are doing well. xoxo, SusieDelete
The fields around here have all been planted....corn, maize, wheat and a few I can't identify! We are still at the ranch! Hopefully we can get the truck up to the gate later this afternooon after things dry out more and BEFORE it rains again! Then we can go home tomorrow!!ReplyDelete
You take such pretty pictures and I like 'seeing' what YOU see!!
Linda, I hope you make it out of the mud. We have been having rain too. Not as much as Texas. I love seeing the crops growing...but actually hate being hemmed in by corn fields , once the corn reaches it's peak till harvest. Blessings for a safe trip home. xoxo,SusieDelete
Everything looks so pretty!! we need a bit of rain. we are only getting some sparse showers.... Thanks so much for stopping by!! Too bad all those pretty blooms at my house do not last all Summer long!!ReplyDelete
Oh Debbie, I feel the same way. I would love for the flowering trees to keep their blooms longer. Hope you have a great weekend, xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie, Your lawn and flowers are so pretty. I hate that you lost the one Jap. Maple. We lost a gardenia this past winter. Everyone I visit thru blogging says they skipped spring and went directly to summer temps. Hope you have a good evening. xoReplyDelete
Mildred, I could only dream of a gardenia, I do not think they grow this far north. Maybe by Tuesday we will be back in the 60's. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
That is a lot of lawn to mow but it's beautiful. I can't even keep my small backyard lawn going. Pretty flowers/plants as well. Blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Hi Cindy, Thank you Cindy. Some times it's hard to keep the lawn nice during scorching summer weather. I guess I am more like my mother than I ever thought I would be...I love flowers too. :):) Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Looks like spring there. Lots of blooms and grass growing here. Lots of rain as well. I can't seem to get excited about planting flowers this year Dragging my feet. Hope you are having a good week-end.ReplyDelete
Debby, I can understand why you are all excited about planting flowers...there's so much going on in your life at this time. Oh yes, we have had plenty of rain. Forecast for today and tomorrow also. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
Wow! Planting must have been early! But weather seems to regulate it doesn't it? Your yard is beautiful! So lush and green! Always love the squirrels! Your Coral Bells are so pretty!!ReplyDelete
Gert, I knew you would enjoy the squirrel shot. :):) Our yard needs mowed again. It's been growing fast with all this rain and warmer temps. I used to mow the lawn in town...but Ted does it all out here. Once the little stems of bells grow on the plant they are so cute. I have a few around here. I do love the colors. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
You are still a bit ahead of us plant/weather wise but we are getting there. Sorry you lost your little tree...I hate when that happens.ReplyDelete
I mow our grass at 3", too. I think it looks much more lush that way. xo Diana
Diana, I always mowed when we lived in town...but out here Ted wants to do that and weed whack...so I let him. LOL. Bless you, SusieDelete
Here's to Ted for keeping up such a fine looking yard!! It's beautiful, Susie. You know, it's been in the 70's here. It rained one day, then got warmer again, but so far it hasn't gotten too hot. I'm not looking forward to those hot days. As I get older, the heat just wipes me out.ReplyDelete
We just had a huge down pour(Monday evening) It finally stopped. I wish I move my containers out of harm's way...they look so sad right now. Bless you, xoxo,SusieDelete
