How wonderful on the 1st day of spring to take a stroll through your garden with you. I could almost smell the sweetness in the air. I love the day lilies. Do you start your pansies yourelf, or do you buy them already started? Have a great week-end, Dawn. HUgs, Kathleen

Great walking with you Dawn. You have a lovely garden.
If your Beechnut has nuts this year I sure would like to see some of them up close to see if that is what I remember when I was a kid.

Great walk thru the garden on this nice spring day!! The Holly looks great and I thought it would not grow here. Guess I sure was wrong about that. Aunt Ginny used to send us some when I was a kid off her tree in British Columbia si I guess if it grew there, it should grow here so I do not know where I got that idea from but I think from Nana.

Thanks for the tour I loved it. You have quite a variety of flowers in your garden. Maybe you can do another tour when the summer flowers are out?
