Let's share pictures! My flowers etc that are in the ground are in a baby stage, so i dont have much to share there. I would really love to see yours though ladies! I stare at my dirt everyday waiting for things to grow..... maybe if I see yours growing I'll feel better! I do have alot of lilies poking up and some glads and acidanthera.

I can share my elephant ears! I planted two, each in nice big black pots. They are doing really well so far.

PearlG, What is the name of the white perrenial on the rock garden ledge in the first series of pics you posted ?

I have seen this white or purple-pink variety in other gardens and often wondered the name & does it remain in bloom long ?

Thanks:)

LOL, DBD, this is why I had to check the date on this "spring is here" post! ;) Not to rub it in or anything, but we've been swimming in our pool since April 30th and summer annuals are in full bloom over here. :D

Well you're obviously in a different zone than me. :p

I'm really happy with my window boxes this year, they're all across the back windows. And here's a pic of my planters I did up yesterday with these tikochina trees for by the pool - apparently they bloom with large purple flowers all summer. Right now they're just bursting with buds, but they haven't opened yet. And a pic of my roses in the front. I'm not usually a rose person, but we inherited some with the house so when I extended the flower bed I added a couple more. Today was the first day there were some blooms fully open. I love that they just flower and flower till fall. My climbing hydrangea on the side of the pool shed...the shed is slated to be torn down probably next year to build an outdoor kitchen, so we'll have to try to relocate it. And finally my herb containers - just some chives and stuff for easy clipping.

Muranogirl I love your front door! :)
