Landscaping and little boys

Everything is in bloom around here.
This is our azalea bed. I have struggled to grow these for 4 years now. We once had 27 azaleas, but lost over half of them 2 years ago to a late freeze. I have added a few more last year and again this year. They seem to be taking off finally. Maybe in 2 or 3 years you will be able to see them better. Have you ever been to the Biltmore Estate Gardens? Well this is how it started out. See there's hope. This is one of the pairs of geese. They have 4 babies. If you click on the picture you will be able to see them better. Hey if you click on the azalea picture you might actually be able to see them too!!!

We have daylillies in this flowerbed. Some of them were given to me by Mrs. Harris who attends church with me. Some are from Merr's flowerbeds. At the very bottom of the picture you can see some of our hostas. They thrive out here.
My prize irises from Merr's flowerbed with my other prizes, Thomas.....and Cooper....
He really enjoys the camera.

Blessings, Memaw Barbie

Gardens give us so much HOPE! Yours are lovely~

Bless your heart! You all have been through so much and sounds like there's more to face~

Dick and I will be praying for your family and asking God to provide each day exactly what you need.

God bless and keep you!
