Missing Our Backyard

I have been in Florida awaiting delivery of another precious baby granddaughter. I will be here for a while and I knew I will miss our backyard as I always do, so I took pictures before I left.











We do have lots of sitting places, don't we?






I think these are plums. I wonder how big they are now.

I love this lantana topiary. I am still debating if I will plant it inground.
 
Kumquats




 Confederate jasmines are blooming around the arbor.
Northern mockingbirds with feed on their mouths for the babies in the nest on the Carolina jessamines by our hose. John said the babies have flown away.


 

So nice to see the garden again even just in pictures. Thanks for viewing with me.
I thank and appreciate all the hostesses.

Christine, Am I understanding correctly, that this is your yard this year. Oh, my goodness, it's so far ahead of where our yard is. We finally have lots of leaves on our trees and are overjoyed to have those. The Weigelas are the exception and are loaded with blooms. I'm green wishing our deck boxes were planted...this weekend maybe it will happen. Love your outdoor areas even if I am green! Thanks for sharing,
Helen

Congratulations on another grandchild, soon to arrive. I like the covered areas around the pool, and that jasmine on the arbor is fantastic.

Your yard is gorgeous this year! I hate that you are missing it, but babies are more important. I can't believe you have so many grandchildren! LOL.

I know you must miss this so much. It truly is gorgeous. It's getting hot right now for much pretty to be blooming in Florida.

Your yard is really gorgeous, Christine.
