The pond is beautiful with a lily pad, but no little green frog.
This is not a water plant, but the flowers are colorful.
Just a few minutes before we left our cabin, Marty found this lovely lily hiding on the border of the dry pond.
Just another delightful surprise to be discovered by the diligent sleuth.
Wild Flowers at the cabin – like a breath of fresh airAs we arrived on Thursday, we were greeted by this lovely blossoming rose,
which had changed dramatically by Saturday afternoon when we reluctantly bid adieu.
This beautiful birthday bouquet sent by my daughter, Hannelora and her family arrived to greatly cheer my day at the same moment the paramedics arrived to save my life. What a wonderful day surrounded by the roses of my life — my family! Thank you!!
Actually we did not have April Showers, but we surely do have May flowers! Lovely time in the Valley of the Arizona Sun.
Roses from my mini garden are abundant and provide a delightful freshly cut May basket.
As we arrived at our cabin in Star Valley, we were delighted to see iris blossoms everywhere. This is the first year the elk have not munched the blossoms away down to the ground. Instead, they seem to have found an easy path to our neighbors yard. We also found a few other wildflowers, the mint we planted from our daughter’s mother-in-law in Gallup, the rosebush, the lavender bush and other lovely growing things.
It was a beautiful, fresh, lovely day at the cabin!
Grandaughters are the loveliest treasures in the garden – the sweetest, most precious flowers of all!!
This odd apple tree, planted 18 months ago has two seasons,
with one branch enjoying the autumn season while another branch enjoys spring.
This lovely bouquet is music to my heart – Arizona dessert roses in the Springtime are the treasures of my yard!
I transplanted this vine from my “secret garden” a year ago, where it was so happy and so reluctant with the new space. But, as I have carefully watered it and nurtured it with encouraging words, I have finally convinced it to grow and beautify this area that was once so desolate.
Spice is begging me to sit with her in her favorite place.The chard is ever abundant, left over from the fall planting, and the new tomatoes and squash plants are showing promise of wonderful future meals.
