It must be Spring!

I love this time of year.  The flowers are blooming and everything is so fresh. My husband is working on the garden. He wants to re-do the fence.  We always have a problem with the ground squirrels.  They want to invade the garden and take off with the lettuce, etc.

Yellow Bank Roses.  I love these.  Every year, they spread and continue to cover the fence.  I want to plant some on the fence at the front.

Wisteria, lilacs, lavender and rosemary.

This is our backyard.

Our koi pond. We also have some gold fish in here.

Here's our garden space. 

I appreciate your visits and comments.  Enjoy your week-end.
