Outdoor Wednesday

I am joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday. I am so excited to finally have something to show you.   Two years ago my yard had a track hoe sitting in it and a very large hole from a large addition we built.  We have just had a spring shower and I couldn't resist the look of the flowers with all the rain dripping off of them.
Love the pop of color from the simplest flowers.
My 5 yr. old picked out a hosta for me with the biggest leaves
we could find.  I have always wanted one of those.
We are still working on the yard.  It has a lot of problem areas.
The one thing I missed the most these last two years was my 
kitchen herb garden.  It was right out my back door and I would
cut herbs for cooking.  But, with a trip or two to the nursery we have 
a few herbs to get me back in business this year.
 Isn't rain so pretty dripping off of flowers.
Every year I put pansies on my front porch.
Thanks for joining me in a stroll around my house.
I hope to have lots to share with Susan this summer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Please go over to her site on the link above and view all the great outdoors.

I was so happy to have some volunteer pansies come back this year.
Thanks for visiting Hospitality Lane.

You are so right, rain droplets are so very pretty on our plants.

Hi Sherry, thanks for stopping by my blog, your flowers look so pretty with the rain drops. So glad you got a herb garden again, aren't they great. I just picked mesclun from my veggie garden this morning, I love adding herbs too to my salad :-)
Hope the weather warms up for you so you can get your tomatoes out :-)

What pretty flowers! The droplets make them looks so fresh and vibrant. I cannot wait to plant my herb garden but my plans for my yard have been put on hold until I can get some inside projects done first.

There is nothing like white and purple pansies. When I was little I used to love the feel of the velvety petals on my face. Your garden took me back. Hope you'll stop by and see us if you have time. Jane F.
