When AJ was here last week, I invited my friend's son who is the same age as she is, to go swimming with her. But before that, I took them to see the creek that runs behind our house.
There it is! There is just a little bit of water but during rainy season, the water really flows. John and I actually crossed the creek once before and then we walked through the forest to get to the Indian mounds. Now that I imagine how many snakes might be in there, I could never do that again.

There is our house on a hill. We went through the back gate to go to the creek. Actually, the creek runs all the way behind our house but it is too wooded in that part of the house that I am afraid to go through there.
This was only last week and the azaleas were not in bloom yet.
Look at them now. They are just starting to bloom although they are already in full bloom in the backyard.
I was watering the hanging planters in the back porch today when I saw this nest. I peeked in and there were 4 bird eggs in it. Do you know what they are?
I went to CVS to buy some batteries and when I came back, I noticed the intense red color of the Japanese maple trees so I started taking pictures. We have 3 of them. There are 2 here. One is smaller. Here's one near the fence.
Do you like my tryke planter? I was going to sell it in my booth but I decided to keep it cause I simply could not let it go.
My secret garden is alive again! Two weeks ago, the white iris bloomed, now it is the pale yellow's turn. Do you see it?
Here is a close up.
Now, do you see where it is?
View from the gazebo.
Buds on the Wisteria
The topiary roses are starting to bloom too.
One thing I like about Mississippi is that I always get surprised by a certain flower blooming cause different kinds bloom at different times.
More azaleas blooming in the background and the red camellias are still blooming too.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the garden again. I am just so excited about it. Spring is definitely my favorite time of the year because of the flowers blooming in the yard.
