A mossy coat covers this little bird and the dish holds a maple seed for a hungry squirrel.
The bleeding heart drapes over the cedar rail reaching for the sun.

Springs delight. The tiny Forget-Me-Not shyly opens her lovely blue petals And brings a smile to my face.

Oh glory of glories!!! The heirloom Lilac in all her sweetness blooms.
The Lord's Angels carry this fragrance to our heavenly Father.

A maple blossom. Yes even the Maple trees bloom. Each small flower will become a helicopter like seed. In the late fall when they have dried they will break loose and spin to the ground where those the squirrels don't eat will become a new tree. Right now I have thousands of seedlings in my yard. Want a tree? LOL
The red peony is eager to show her loveliness. This bud is ready to burst open with a multitude of fragrant, satiny petals. She is a show off!
I call her pink princess. I don't know the true name of this sweet little tulip but she is so dainty and precious, all trimmed in white and opening her petals to the sun.
Another delightful pink blossom!! This was one of those end of season plants that had lost it's tag. I remember the price was $1.50. I love surprises and this one thrilled me. Is she not a delicate beauty? I have a blue Butterfly bush growing behind her.
This little row of tulips is three years old. The bulbs are multiplying nicely. Those little yellow 'flowers' I did not plant. I guess the Lord thought I needed them.

The Spanish Bells have multiplied incredibly well. They are growing all over the place! The purple seems to be the most prolific but I also have white and pink. I love them! There are Columbine growing behind this clump.

Here's a macro shot of the white Spanish Bells. It's so pristine against the green foliage and blue sky. You'll have to excuse the angle. I had to hold my camera down by my toes and they couldn't use the view finder. LOL
Little Matilda thoroughly enjoyed her run around the back yard while I was taking pictures but she and her friend Toodles were waiting for me on the deck. They wanted a drink of water.
Toodles says, "hurry up mama!! I'm a thirsty boy." He is six years old now and Matilda is five. Time sure flies when we are having fun!

"And He walks with me and He talks with me..."
I love this path in the lower garden.
A praise report!
My friend John's doctor did an exam last week and told him he no longer has cancer in his prostate. We are giving God glory!!
His doctor told him the cancer is probably somewhere else in his body but we are rebuking that lie of Satan. When God heals us of our illness he does not relocate it!
Thank you Lord God Almighty!
Thank you all for your prayers for John.
John thanks you too.

Your garden holds the magic of spring.You set off a few nice memories for me too. When I was a kid I used to watch out for those seeds. I called them helicopters and would collect them and climb up high on something and let them loose.The pink flower is a rhododendron of some sort, I wouldn't know which one though. I love your garden.
Funny Bev, the word verifications thingies on all the blogs I am visiting this morning seem to match the post in some way. Yours is nestor.

Bev, your spring garden is wonderful! I especially love the forget-me-not picture. What a little beauty it is!
Oh my, that Lilac really is glorious! I'm imagining that heavenly scent. What a delight!
And, oh, those tulips are gorgeous and so is your pretty path. It must be such a pleasure to walk along it with your camera in hand.
Your little pooches are enjoying the spring too :)
So glad to hear the good news about John and will surely pray for your friend, Mary.
Those Easter pics of the kiddies are so cute :)

I would love to walk in your garden for real, but viewing your photos is the next best thing.
So lovely!

Great news from your friend!

The flowers are all so lovely!! We have oodles of the helicopters here too, so no need for a maple seedling!! I didn't know the squirrels like them though.

I think that peony is going to be so pretty!!

Wonderful news about John!!

I'm glad to hear the good news about John.

That plant you've lost the tag to looks like a rhododendron to me, and a beautiful one, too.

Your garden is a paradise, MM, and I didn't knee maple trees had flowers. The seeds you describe remind me of sycamores...they do the same thing.

Lovely photos of your little doggies...

Beautiful photos of your garden. Its been such a cool Spring. It amazes me how tough our plants are!
Hope you are surving the latest windstorm okay. Its blowing hard here but we still have power :)
Praising God with you for answered prayer.
