April Rose Flush

17 Apr

I felt the need to post something pretty today. Here’s some flowers from my yard.

This is Madam Alfred Carriere climbing up the front of my house. This year she’s really starting to fill her position!

It’s been raining this week so there are extra petals from Madam Alfred on the ground. It’s very romantic to me!

Huntington Gardens Blooms, Late March

4 Apr


I haven’t had the chance to go to Huntington Gardens for months! I had just enough time to pop in for an hour or so before they closed this Saturday. Continue reading

Baby Hummingbirds and Sakura?

23 Mar

Hi, folks!
One of my wisteria vines is also blooming! … and here’s another photo of Belle Story Rose!

Look at what I found in my baby sakura tree!
This bird nest is super super tiny! Is it a hummingbird nest? I put up a feeder in my yard,… I think maybe I should put up another one, too! I loooove hummingbirds. I’ll plant some more hummingbird friendly plants when I get some time, too.

This is one of my little (planted in Dec) sakura trees. I’m not sure what type it is… at the nursery they told me it it was a double-pink… but it’s blooming single white. But sometimes people say it doesn’t bloom what it is the first year. I don’t really mind either way, I like both types (though I’d prefer a pink since my other tree is definitely a white!) I’m super happy that it looks like it’s actually going to bloom a decent amount soon! So hopefully that means it’s doing well.

Plants, Roses

24 Dec

A big moving truck came with a ton of plants for me today from the nursery! SO EXCITED. My mom really loves plants, too, so it was really fun to get to share that with her.

here’s some mystery bonus roses I got from http://www.roguevalleyroses.com
I think I’m going to plant them in pots to see at least what color they are before I decide where to put them. I wonder what they are?!

Showa-No-Sakae Camellias! It’s a low, more groundcover version of camellia. so cool, I love the trailing branches. Double blooms!

double pink flowering cherry tree! 🙂 I’m actually not sure on the specific variety, he’s going to get back to me on that.

snowfountain white weeping flowering cherry. 😀 behind it you can see a Lady Banks rose and some wisteria.

I found some pink penstemon, some fleabane daisies and a few white poppies! I have some seeds coming, too, that I’m going to play around with till spring.

bicolor morea, lavendar, rosemary and thyme

White and blue bearded iris bulbs from my mom’s yard… originally from my Mommy Vi’s yard, one of the sweetest women who ever lived. Also, I bought some white muscari bulbs today.

Step 1 of the broken concrete patio!

what it looks like today! (aren’t they doing a nice job? I think it looks really great.) The thyme is going to grow inbetween the rocks!
