In all our turmoil Spring has arrived in Texas! The weather has been beautiful! Today it was warm enough for me to put on shorts ! I have taken some outdoor pictures of my new front and side yard to share.
I have been anxious to see what pops up if anything. This house is not as well landscaped as our other houses but I can fix that a little at a time.
This is the side yard. Those are my kitchen windows. Not too much growing here.
A closer look. I bought a new humming bird feeder for this sunny spot. I open the blinds and peek at the birds. Our hummingbird feeders are mostly in our backyard. So far no hummingbirds but lots of others visiting my bird bath!!
The tall tree in the first picture is my lemon tree. Here is a close up. I can't wait to see them grow!
I have two very small orange trees and a grapefruit tree in our backyard with flowers on them.
I find this exciting!
This is sitting in the corner, just above the birdbath in the first picture.
Just one lonely flower.........
We live on a corner lot so this is looking down the street from our driveway.
We have lots of "Forever Roses" all around the house.
The front of the house is mostly greenery.
I would like to have more color. Behind the bushes are red roses.
It's a little plain for me. They put rocks close to the front door on each side. Our house doesn't have any gutters, so when it rains it kills whatever is growing there.
That will have to change in the future. I don't like the rocks. Too many weeds are popping up. I like a clean front way.
To tell you the truth, I don't like bugs therefore I will not dig in the dirt in Texas. So gardening is out for me. Texas just has too many big bugs for me plus red ants etc. I am not a fan of any kind of bug. I scream like a wild woman.
When I was about ten years old, I bolted through glass shower doors because I had a spider visit me while I was taking a shower. I didn't get hurt just scared me to death!
I am glad I sat down today and wrote to you. I feel much better. I will try to keep up with it at least once a week or so while Mr. Sweetladyelaine is recovering.
I hope you have a great week and thank you for visiting.
Blessings My Friend,
