Spring is Here, at Least Where We Live!

I am linking with Susan for Outdoor Wednesday at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/
and Glenda for Fertilizer Friday at http://www.tootsietime.com/

This is the view right now from my desk in the home office. The pansies made it through the winter and the peach trees are now blooming. The oak trees have lost all their leaves. It's been raining on and off.
This green umbrella is what I picked from CNS when I won the giveaway of Gloria of http://thelittleredhousewiththewhiteporch.blogspot.com/ Thanks Gloria, it's perfect! Daffodils are blooming.

The forsythias are also blooming.
I bought some tulips and hyacinths from Walmart. They were only a $1 each and planted them under the oak tree. They will probably die soon but maybe they'll come back and spread next year.
Our Carolina jessamines are blooming in abundance.

The jasmines made it through winter also. You can see the peach trees and 2 small Japanese magnolia trees also blooming behind the arbor.

I was driving out of the driveway this morning when I saw this white thing. I thought it was a tissue that flew into the yard. I went down to pick it up and then realized it is a white iris, our first iris bloom.

I am just so happy that the yard is starting to get colorful and alive again. Hope you enjoyed the photos. Thanks for stopping by and thanks to Susan and Glenda for hosting. I hope you get to visit them also.

I can't believe all the blooms you have there! We have a lot of trees and I see the tulips all around too. Looks beautiful!

Your yard is beautiful. Can't believe you have iris blooming already. I did like spring about a week ago better than I like spring this week. Cold and rainy here in Birmingham. Don't count on the tulips blooming again next year. They just don't seem to do well as perennials in the South. I have to plant new ones each year.

Lovely yard Christine. Our buds are just sprouting after the last hard freeze we had. I'm just glad to see anything green. Your tulips and hyacinths are beautiful. I always feel refreshed to see the new growth!

Beautiful blooms, Christine. The first picture should be in your header. I have forgotten what you planted to climb over your arbor....it is so lush! How lucky you are that spring has arrived in Natchez!

Your blooms are so pretty! Your iris is so gorgeous! I can't wait til mine bloom, but it won't be for a few more weeks for us.

Thanks for sharing your touches of Spring. It was a gray/raining day here. I had hoped to take pics of the blooming trees - maybe tomorrow.

That white iris is gorgeous! Mine are all shades of purple, I may have to try some white ones. I wish I lived somewhere with a shorter winter season...I am so much happier when there are flowers all around! Beautiful photos!

Oh, your yard looks beautiful Christine. I can't believe how much is already blooming. Everything has matured so much since you planted all of it. Your yard is going to be a show place this summer. laurie

Christine, You are going to have one gorgeous garden when it all is in bloom because it is well on its way! I wish spring would make its appearance here. We are expecting some snow tomorrow night. whew- I thought we were going to turn a corner and start getting nicer weather. Enjoy your weather! Sue
