Wheelie Wednesday - Back to the Garden

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!We've had rainy dreary weather for the past few days but his Lady's Mantle sure does look happy! Mom and I love how the raindrops bead up on her leaves!This is a euphorbia. A clump of it was given to mom a long time ago and its been spreading all by itself. It bleeds a milky white sap if you break the stem. The bleeding heart is in bloom and so is the ajuga!
Mom cartoonized me and the ajuga! I'm thinking she's way past any kind of help at this point!The sweet woodruff is in bloom. They use this plant in the making of May wine!We took a trip up to the second floor of our house and hung out the window to get this next shot. Pay no attention to the round brown spots in the lawn! We know how those got there, don't we *wink wink*
Pretty soon the whole garden will be alive with flowers! I can't wait!

See you all next Wednesday!

Thank you, Autumn, for braving the drizzle to show us your lovely plants and flowers. Looks like Spring has sprung in your neck of the woods!

PS I tried a new recipe on my pups from Barker's Grub. Don't know if it applies to the kidney diet but the doggies scarfed it up!:

Mix up
Brown Rice, smoked Alaskan salmon, hard boiled eggs, peas and a smidge of dill

The garden is looking beautiful Autumn, much further on than ours. You must be having warmer weather!
Love your hat!

Sue said...

I'm looking forward to seeing your garden all in bloom, too. Since my helpers trample my flowers, I'm not planting many this year.

You always have such beautiful flowers - Mom is slightly envious.

Please stop by our blog and meet Merry Ann - we know she'd love to meet you.

That is a great shot of your garden from the first floor window. We love all those statues and things in your garden. Mum's planted a bleeding heart a short while ago. She hopes it'll like it where she put it. Yours is very pretty.

Clive said...

We love those garden shots! We love euphorbias as well - we have several varieties in the garden but we hate their white sap! It can sting something awful!

take care
Clive and the NSLM

Dear Autumn, I can't exclaim enough what a GORGEOUS garden you have there! Paradise! Love the greenery and the exotic flowers you have around, great colors.

Tell me what your family doesn't know or incapable of!

Now there you go, cartoonized as well! ;)

Oskar said...

You have a beautiful garden, but it could use a few well place holes. I'm excellent in determining where to dig such holes!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Autumn,
It's spring time, not autumn. April showers bring May flowers; or so we've been told.

Wyatt said...

Your garden is looking so lovely!
Thank you for sharing, we have so much in common!

Stay dry,

Lorenza said...

Love this time of the year. My gardens are also growing as I type. My honeysuckles are huge this year. Makes you what to go grab a cup of coffee and go relax out in the garden with a good book.

Sam said...

You have a beautiful garden. I wish I could have one like that one day!
