Spring keeps springing

We are so pleased with how the landscaping in the front yard turned out. I love the bicolored gingers...
...on either side of the front door.
Meanwhile, in the back yard, some of the lirope (monkey grass) is starting to bloom.
After the pansies and cyclamen faded in the heat, we replaced them with caladiums...
...in all their variety!

What a lovely yard! I especially like the caladiums around the trees.

Your yard is so pretty!

Oooh, nice! We're working in our yard this weekend, but it doesn't look as tidy as yours yet. (Hmmm... actually there's a good chance it won't get there!)

Ruth Hull Chatlien said...

Oh, this is so colorful and yet peaceful too. And I like your house.

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

Oh it is all so beautiful!!

Beautiful yard! It's not my thing, although I've got tomatoes and peppers and squashes (I hope) growing in the back.

like those gingers. Your joy of having a garden is beautiful. My pansies are still happy up here in PA where it has been cool and wet for a bit.

Your yard, and your home, are beautiful! Will you come to Wyoming and landscape our yard?

Jan said...

Very, very nice! What a lovely home and yard.

Nice! I'm jealous of your landscaping and The Alpha knows it.

In related news, I got a subscription offer for Garden & Gun magazine over the weekend. Did you?

DogBlogger said...

Oh, and I just tagged you.

BoHEmia, what a glorious garden! Enjoy! Tomorrow I go buy my herbs and veggies. Up here in the frozen tundra (NE Ohio)we are just planting them. No rosemary bushes here, in fact, I have yet to "winter over" my rosemary. My herb lady is sure they all quake when I enter the greenhouse. sigh. BTW, your broccoli salad is on the Memorial Day menu! yum

I wish I could say we had done this ourselves--but nope! We joked that if we get Yard of the Month, we'll take the sign and give it to our nurseryman and his crew!

We will be the ones who try to keep it looking like this, though!

I love the choices you made. I always like various shades of green with other colors. Unfortunately we do not have the resources or gifts to do this. Also we've always wanted a house with gray bricks. Yours is lovely.
