Plants In My Yard…..a Beginners Guide

Standard

Finally warm enough outside for the plants to start coming in. Here is a brief tour…I do not remember the names of most of these plant-trees. I will refer to them as I call them IRL.

We have a pair of these lovely flowering trees in our front yard. I call them “Bee Food”

Under these trees sound like the revving of motorcycles in the distance…there are hundreds of bees…thankfully I am not afraid of them!

The packaging at the plant store lied….this shrub was only supposed to get to 12 inches across.

The ” I can’t remember if I planted these…or are they weeds???”

The “You better enjoy them while they last flowering tree…one good wind or rain storm and it’s about to snow pink petals up in here!”

  1. I so enjoyed the tour through your beautiful yard this morning with my hot cup of coffee. Your pictures are all so wonderful and I especially enjoyed the pictures of the cardinals, finches and the red winged blackbird ~ as I love to feed the birds too! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I loved the pictures of your garden and land (animals included).  It must take you forever to mow that expansive lawn.  Beautiful surroundings….. lucky you!!!!!

  3. Gorgeous photos…and a purely fun post. YOu had me chuckling with glee at the names of your plants. You should turn this into a book with those captions.
