My World: Blossoms to Welcome Us Home

Our front yard, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 7, 2011.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

Betsy and I came home to a yard full of color, thanks to the wet Spring we had here on the Plateau.  The grass was green, the iris were still blooming (they had started before we left for the beach), the azaleas in the front yard were putting on a show, and the roses were full of buds and blossoms.  All in all it was a beautiful welcome home.

Both of these pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them, but if you do that please don’t look too closely.  The grass desperately needs to be mowed.  I guess that’s my welcome home.

    It’s lovely George – even with the tall grass!
    We came home to very high grass as well. Almost hay as one buddy said. Hubs has it all mowed now but it took two days. 🙂
