Overdose of flowers in my backyard - where I spend most of my time. Love my front, just need to add some color there - without overdoing like in my back. Mostly shade from with the giant oak tree - that I love!

Last time my visit with you was Dec. 2012. Hope all is well. The iris you have are awesome

Donna thank you so much for viewing our little garden pond. My Daughter Britnee and myself built it and we now have about 65 fish and it's so relaxing after a long day at work.


Thanks for visiting my yard. It's true we have very similar flowers in our gardens. I will have to post more. Your yard is amazing. The fountain you got for your birthday is lovely. It's great watching the birds come to bathe. Hope to see more of your yard. Enjoy spring.
