Spring has Sprung!

We are getting lots of rain....Yea!   We need it badly.  Our Wisteria is blooming beautifully.
Everything is so green and pretty.  I love Spring. 


Our pondless waterfall off our Family room.  We get to enjoy the view and the sound of running water in the warm weather.
This is off our study.  Lots of rain and a few leaves.


Here's the front of our house.  Everything looks so green and fresh.  It was raining a little while I was taking these photos.


Isn't this Japanese Maple beautiful?  It's right by the waterfall creek.
Another shot of the front of the house.  You can see the balcony to our master bedroom above.  It overlooks the creek waterfall below with lush landscaping.
 These are Yellow Bank Roses that bloom every  Spring, around my birthday.  I love them.  I planted them years ago along the fence.


Wisteria, Lavender and Rosemary



More Japanese maples by our back Koi pond.

This is my birthday present from my cousin and her mom.
Isn't she sweet?  She looks perfect sitting there by the waterfall. She is holding a butterfly.
This is our backyard....Lots of trees.
These steps go down to the pool.  I am standing halfway down taking this shot

Ok, I just wanted to share some  spring time photos of our yard.  Stay dry!  Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy the week-end.
I am linking up with the following blogs:

  50. Oh my gosh, Linda...your yard & landscaping are just FABULOUS!! I loved seeing your wisteria...its color reminds me of our lilacs that bloom about the same time.

    I agree with Cherry Kay...I'd never leave home!!
    Just beautiful, Honey. You are truly blessed to live in such a gorgeous place.

    fondly,
    Rett

    p.s. I you DO plant some tomatoes this year, try putting some crushed egg shells down deep in the hole before you put the plant in. It adds needed calcium to the soil & prevents lots of bad things from happening to your fruits.
