Hubby gets all the credit

My yard man, first and foremost my husband, does all the yard work.  He loves it, I think.  Well at least he doesn't complain.  He comes by it naturally, his Mom and Uncle were garden lovers.

Here is what spring and Lynn has brought to our yard.

Lynley said to throw out this dead stuff, but Lynn promptly pointed to the little green sprout.  This is a ginger plant, I think.

The rose is a climber, how did it get up in the oak tree?  I almost caught the blue hour, drat should have waited a few more minutes.

Ground cover got caught up in the freeze, we lost half of it. You can also see our horrible Texas dirt!  I am surprised anything survives in it.

I have wanted one of these for over twenty years.  Finally, bought one and will give it a try, a Tulip Magnolia.  The girls baby sitter, Mama Polly,  from when they were young had a gorgeous one in her front yard.

Just hanging around waiting for summer time!

Stop by and tell Cass at That Old House,  hi. She is looking out her window at this today!  She must need some cheering up.  New Jersey to Texas, what a difference!


  1. So nice to see all of the color Lori! Luckily Philly missed that snow:@)

  2. I love this time of year when you start to see the buds on the trees and the return of flowers and color! Your hubby definitely has a green thumb!

  3. I need a yard man! It's nice to see all the flowers in your yard. I love tulip trees, too. There are a few here that bloom. There's one that's huge and so gorgeous. I'd buy the house just for the tree!

  4. Aren't you lucky that your husband likes to garden. Mine does the heavy stuff...trimming etc, but leaves the flowers to me. Was that a gardenia in one picture? It looked HUGE, and I always kill mine.
    Enjoy this beautiful day ~ absolutely gorgeous today!

  5. Lucky girl...pretty yard and awesome guy, what more could you ask for!

  6. Beautiful flowers! I love the first picture of pansies. I made a pansy planter a few days ago too.

  7. Beautiful flowers! So nice your hubby does this for you. What a nice treat to have to not worry about the yard. Thanks for linking up!

  8. Oh I adore your flowers~ swoon!

    I am currently hosting an auction of vintage and antique linen treasures. Stop by and take a peek.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. Your husband likes to garden???? Where do you find a man like that? Mine runs the other way when the plants are mentioned.

    But, he does vacuum before company comes, to I guess I can't complain.

    We left a snowy NJ on Thursday for our beach house on Long Island -- no snow there -- and we came home on Sunday and it is still snow covered here! NUTS!
