Wheelie Wednesday - Back to the Garden

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
It's so good to be back in the garden and weeding and getting dirt under my toenails! I just have to show you what's in bloom!

I found this trillium just outside our back door! It was a total surprise because I never planted it there! Isn't it just lovely!
These are white lily-of-the-valley in bloom! We also have pink ones! I wish you could all smell them! They have the most beautiful fragrance!
This columbine is also blooming! We're sort of cheating here because mom just bought this plant a couple of weeks ago! We just love the color and the blooms are huge!This lilac is called "Abe Lincoln"! It's more blue than the others and it smells differently from the old fashioned variety! It sure does smell wonderful!
This lilac is called "Sensation" and is a more red-violet with white edging on the petals! This one doesn't have as strong a fragrance as the others, in my opinion, which is a huge disappointment for such a lovely flower!The candytuft is also in bloom!
I hope you enjoyed seeing what was blooming in my garden this week!

See you all next Wednesday!

Love, Autumn

Autumn, you have a real green paw. The garden is looking stunning. We wish you could visit our town. You'd love the Autumnal colours although many of the leaves have fallen now. The ground is really crunchie hehe.

It's me, Hector. I hope that you still like me after all that bad behavior. As you can see on my bloggy, I am feeling much more like a gentleman now and ready to walk down the garden path with you.

Autumn, I really love your garden. Do you think you can come over to my back yard and make my flowers bloom too? Nothing is even budding yet! Mama says she'd hire you at the flower shop in a heartbeat - you sure know your stuff!!

Mom sure wishes we had smell-o-vision on this computer so she could smell all the pretty flowers. Thanks for sharing them with us!!

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Well Autumn, that was a fine tour of your garden. We bet youse guys got lots of good sniffs out there and everything is very pretty. Now if we moved in for a day all of that sweet fragrance and beauty would be GONE! Touring our garden paddock you wouldn't want smellovision. Here's the hole the jack dug trying to get to some critter hiding under Max and Shiloh's house. here's the bigger hole that Shiloh dug trying to get to Jack. Here's where the grass used to grow along this path beaten into the ground by a million thundering paws. Get the picture?
