Man I'm pretty creative in my titles now...anyway that is basically what this post is about...all the things blooming around our place. Our tulips finally made a show. They were planted over 10 years ago and most have kept their color and some have reverted to originals...love them all.

This is one that has reverted back to original. It is white with lilac edging around each petal and lilac center. It also has a lovely smell.

These are about the opposite in color to the red ones...Yellow with red centers. 

Another one that reverted and they are a lilac color. I really love these. Not sure what color they were on their first bloom. It's been too many years.

The view of our house. We have a lot of work ahead. Our porch needs cleaning and pressure washed. The house needs pressure washed and then resealed. All our yard furniture need repainting and then I need to rework the flower bed under the tree we cut. It has some pink naked lady lilies and spider lilies but it is so dry and hot in that area that nothing else grows much and those only show leaves in spring and bloom in September so most of the time it is bare. I plan to dig all the bulbs up and replant elsewhere and then plant ivy there. I want it to grow up the tall stump we left. I plan to make a roof for the top of the stump and add a door for my gnome garden. I think the ivy will look terrific in that area. 

This area is closer to the house. The chairs and benches need painting. We also will cut back the ivy from the old wringer washers and clean the 2 small goldfish ponds. We still have one fish left but need to replenish them this year. Always seems to be a lot of work. 
And as always...
