Springtime is here ...

and that means new life in the yard, garden and flower beds. The purple Irises were plants that my MaMa saved from her mother's (my great-grandmother) garden. I planted them last year and these are there first blooms. These plants are about 20 years old. The rose pic is one of my Knockout Rose bushes that I planted last week. The last is a pic of this year's garden. I have collared greens, carrots, cilantro, squash, zuchinni, spinach, broccoli, kale, potatoes and of course tomatoes (17 plants).

I love this time of year. There is nothing more enjoyable or relaxing than working in the yard/garden in the cool of the morning and taking my coffee on the back porch while I God bring new life to the world around me.
