A backyard view...........

The only things I could taken a photo of yesterday were the vacuum cleaner and dust rag.  I thought you might rather see my back garden.  I'm going to take photos every 2 weeks to show how it all fills in.  This is facing left.  Several trees and/or big limbs were removed last year so I will be able to get into the gardens easier.
This is moving a little to the right.  To the left in this photo is the Brunnera I showed yesterday and in the center there will be lots of hostas.



 

A little farther right. 
The bird feeders are in this photo as well as my birdbath.








This is all the way to the right.  Here if you click to enlarge you can see the peonies are getting tall and the redbud trees are pinking up.  

I am expecting out of town guests so I had to move many, many quilts and wallhangings off the guest bed.  I rolled most of my wallhangings into huge rolls.  Here is an example from an earlier time.

yards at this time do not take long to fill in I'm sure all your plants will be thriving before you know it. Have a good time with your company

You keep a very nice yard. Our peonies are yet to be seen. Happy Easter.

Always fun to see what is popping up in IL. vs what comes up in our spring gardens here in the valley. I REALLY enjoy your 'collective butterflies'. As always fabrics make me smile.

Happy Easter Weekend...

Good idea to take a series of progressive photos -- have a good weekend!

Spring is, indeed, upon us. Enjoy your guests~

Good idea and the plants certainly seem to have more light with some of the limbs removed. I always like to see the photos of your paeonies and looks like they're racing away now.

Happy Easter and I hope you enjoy your visitors. It is such a special time of year to see all the plants pushing through and your garden seems to be so well nurtured by you. I must try out those Kringlas!
