Birsting Forth

This time of year, in Southern California, everything is green and the flowers are peaking already. Perfect for Easter Sunday.

I would love a few chickens of my own but for now this will have to do.

The leaves are huge on my vine. They require almost daily pruning to keep the vine from falling off the wall.


Shells collected from our trips to the coast.


My little rose trees are all in bloom now.


Foxgloves reseed themselves in the back of my planter. They are toxic so I don't want them anywhere my little one can get to them. She loves to pick flowers.

I'll have you know that I have saved some of your pictures in my inspiration folder for how I'd like my back yard to look when we move into our new home. Unless, of course, you just want to sell me your house. That would be so much easier!

Beautiful! I am so jeolous. Here in eastern Ontario we are still waiting for spring to arrive and this morning woke to snow on the ground.

Love the pictures. Did you plant your Virginia Creeper? I didn't and it is everywhere. It is quite invasive here. Love the roses!

Beautiful garden, and so nice to see the roses.
We are still aways from seeing things that green, and thriving here. Thanks for sharing :)

Beautiful flowers. And I never knew that Foxglove was toxic. I was just looking at some yesterday, now I'll have to think about them some more. They sure are pretty though!
