Garden Ramblings: This week in bloom…

It was a cloudy, rainy week, which is good for the plants (& knocking down pollen counts) but not so good for picture taking. I managed to get a few though.

He was kind of far away – but there was a gorgeous hawk on my fence one morning yesterday.

  3. I may have to join this "meme" and post my gardening adventures. I've been really biting off more than I can chew and buying tons of stuff as though I'm an experienced horticulturist. Are these plants on your lawn?

    1. I hope you do Pam!

      The shrubs are along a fence and they flowers that I post pictures of are in a big flower bed. I've been rearranging things this year and making it easier to garden.

  4. Great pictures, even with the gloomy rain. My flowers have yet to bloom, but they're getting ready to bud so I'm excited! And that hawk is gorgeous!

  8. Spring is definitely among my favorite seasons - it's so fantastic to see everything come ALIVE after going dormant for the winter. I don't think there is a season that is more refreshing! Beautiful pictures!

  9. I miss the hawks we use to have in Florida. Odd thing to say but true. They're magnificent to watch.

    Blueberries!!!! I want to try growing them so bad. How do you keep the critters off them?
