~ Signs of Spring ~

Signs of spring are here~ YAHOO~ All of these pictures where taken Sunday in our backyard. Can you believe the size of this rose bloom? Now look at the twigs behind it...lol. That's supposed to be butterfly bush. I have not started prepping my flowerbeds or pruning at all. I'm hoping to start this coming weekend. :)
That is my idea of a GOOD weekend!

The jasmine have started to bloom and they smell sooo good~





I can't remember what these are called but I'm buying more of them this year~
very low maintenance and they survived our winter w/no protection.
That's my kind of plant. :)


Awe~ our little windmill ( a b-day gift from my Mister this past October )
I think it was the perfect accessory for our yard~


Have a beautiful day~


Big hugs~ J

Ohhhhh, I'm so jealous! We won't see any signs of spring for awhile yet. We still have snow all over the place! I can't believe I picked your very favorite song ever to run on that post about the new house I found you!! How crazy is that? I love your windmill too! We almost always have at least a slight breeze here in the summer and it would look so cute in my back yard. Have a great day!

What a gorgeous rose, Jessica! I can almost smell that Jasmine. I need to get some! Doesn't it make you feel great when the color starts really coming back in your garden?
Now, your tiny little name is entered into my giveaway!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

I am so jealous. But thanks for sharing it with us, I am so wanting to see flowers and green grass.
We got snow this weekend, though we missed the worst of it. Just about 45 minutes from us they had a 50 car pile up. The roads were really bad.
Have a great day.

Jessica, I am so green with envy. We are suppose to have snow on Thrusday. My Jasmine has been in the garage for the winter. I noticed yesterday that it is starting to bud. That's the only sign of spring around here. I love your windmill.
Hugs, Terrie
