Outdoor Wednesday March 31, 2010

Susan @ has lots of Outdoor Shots for us today. Go over and look at everyones beautiful posts.

Today I am posting a few pictures of my back yard.  First is our Martin Bird House we planted a few years ago.  The problem is the starlings took it over and the  Purple Martins won't come near it. We still enjoy seeing the birds in their apartments, making a home for their families.

I can see green finally, I'm so excited to start manicuring all the flower beds.  This is a pic of one of our pine juniper trees.  This is a weeping one, I forget the scientific name of it.  During this time of year is when it produces new branches.

I took a shot of the garden with the Purple Martin House and forgot my little white ceramic bunny who lives there.Pretty soon he will be surrounded with poppies and lillium plants.

We have one flower blooming now, the daffodills are all looking springie.
Today its going to be in the 70's. LOVE LOVE LOVE that.
Happy Wednesday to all of my blogging buddies!!!

Your backyard is blooming for sure. It looks so peaceful and I can't wait to see it in full bloom! Thanks Ann.


Lovely daffs! I have been outside walking around , not seeing too much going on yet. But I have raked out the beds and am ready to plant in a week or two.

Thanks for peaking in at my post today (Disney Topiary). Glad you enjoyed the photos. it was a fun trip since we had not been there in years. I see Spring is blooming in your area too. I love all the blooming trees and colorful flowers. I will peak in again at your blog. Happy Holiday to you.

Well it certainly isn't that warm here but I did manage a day in the garden last Saturday. I sure feels good to clean out those garden beds from winter.
Yes that bear grew that winter coat before and during hibernation. It is was a very warm season here and they have come out of their dens early. Not much to eat though.
I love your pony picture on the sidebar. I have put mine on my site in a post before too.

Hi Ann, your garden is just popping up with beautiful daffodils! Spring has arrived!

Happy Easter!

Jeanne said...

Hi Ann, I am finally home again and glad to be here. There is nothing like your own pillow and bed. Smile.

Love your bird house and lovely green yard. the flowers are so sweet. We are still having a late spring here in the mountains. It was 27 again last night. The flowers just don't like this chilly weather. Me neither...sigh.

Enjoy spring.

Hugs, Jeanne
