    We missed the whole lily of the valley season. @Lisa_Fav

    Lilacs are spent.

    The clematis under the deck is doing its thing!!!!

    Hydrangea is greening up.

    This climbing monster overtakes one whole side of the deck before it blooms. Not sure what it is, but I like it.

    Coral Bells are perking up some.

    Don't know what these little purple guys are.

    Our lilies are just budding a little.

    Peonies have buds. These are from my grandma's house and are easily as old as I am. 😱😱😱

    Kale I planted last year and then didn't harvest. 😳😳 Also we haven't done any weeding or cleaning of flowerbeds so ignore last year's detritus.

    Bad picture, but the baptista is just beginning to get purple. We have a lot of this and it usually looks spectacular.

    Yellow rosebud

    Honeysuckle. It's more of a weed, really, and horribly invasive, but it smells like heaven SO I DON'T CARE!

    Ivy of some sort at the back edge of the flower bed.

    The spot for the new raised beds. Our old garden spot has been too shady for the past several years.

    We've taken out 4 big trees this year. This one was the smallest, but we had a huge pin oak in the front removed and some 30 yr old Dogwoods too.
  22. β€’
    Iris. We have two kinds, but they've been just chilling in the back shade garden and don't do too well there. My mom has plans for a slope garden in the front yard, but she always has ten project plans going at once so they may never come to fruition.

    More pinks
  24. β€’
    More peony bushes.

    Weed. But a pretty one. 🌼🌼🌼

    This has been a garden since we moved in in 1981. But the big oak tree just keeps it in shade too much of the day to really grow much anymore.

    Azalea bush is ready to bloom its little heart out!
  28. β€’
    More hostas on the side of the house. And the foliage from the daffodils(long gone this year, of course.)

    Terrible picture of a terrible little clematis that does nothing and produces 1 1/2 flowers a year.
