Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

The last couple of days I have been working really hard in my flower beds trying to get them ready for flowers. With some of the flower beds I am pretty much working from scratch so its taking awhile (needless to say LOL) But I have got some hollyhocks and dahlias planted so that now I do have room on my kitchen table so that I can transplant more flowers and vegetables to bigger pots. So that's a good thing.

I was walking around the yard the other day and I couldn't help but show you some of the flowers that are growing in the yard.

Gotta love those pink tulips!

This is actually a yellow miniature rose, but for some reason the flash messed up the color *frown*

Thankfully this one didn't. But this is another miniature rose.

This is my Celtic skies clematis 'Vyvyan Pennell'. I never thought it would bloom this small, but I'm not complaining

This I believe is the Angelique tulip.

I really love the colors

This is my little bitty morning glory that is (hopefully) going to provide massive amounts of color to the front porch

More pictures of the fantastic Pink Wave Petunias

I know what you mean about making flower bed from scratch. That is hard work.

Jessica you have some beautiful tulips growing in your beds. I love the Angelique tulips. I use to have some years ago but they have since failed to bloom so I had to pull them.It would be wonderful if all tulips bloomed every year as species tulips do.
