Springtime in Kentucky

God knew we needed flowers so we got some.

This is the view out our front door.

I've planted these iris' around the yard in a variety of places
and this is the first year they have bloomed in several years. We've been going through a lot with my daughter's cancer, but, these flowers make me smile.
There's even a potential of some roses that also haven't bloomed in years, yes Jesus loves me.

This is our backyard, not a lot of flowers here, just faeries. There are some iris planted at the top of the stone steps, leading down the hill,but, they are buds right now.

It's springtime in Kentucky so there are lots of flowers and birds. This is a robin in the dogwoods in the front of our house.

What's a front porch in the south without a fern han
ging? And this is I don't know what kind of bird that has built a nest in my fern. Far be it from me to destroy a nest, so this will be my nature experience for a while. Maybe it's a little sparrow, my girls love it when I sing that Dolly Parton

Nest photos to follow.

All those trees and the birds chose a fern for a nest?!?! Should make it easy to keep tabs on the eggs and babies, but I hope you can water it without them getting upset. What a lovely yard!

I am very interested in making a grandmother's garden and found these paper templates that you can sew around that help keep the shape, however I'm still on a quest to find plastic ones like a friend has. Of course that will have to wait until I finish the one I'm working on! Thanks for visiting my Blog.
