Garden Tour Thursday

IZA:  Welcome Friends!  On todays Garden Tour, we will start at the Front Landscaping Box.  Its the best-lookin part of the yard right now.  Start back here where ya can see the whole thing...
Now we'll go in a bit closer ta where ya can see individual flowers.
Then close at the front so ya can see the details better.  The bright orange centers really stand out from the pale yellow outer parts.
Around the side here, ya can also see them well.   But if ya look close, ya can see there are MORE comin up just now.  Those will bloom later an they are white. so there will be a whole new look inna few weeks!
 Now, back inta the backyard, where there are some tulips gettin ready ta bloom.  They must like this spot cuz its the only place where they seems ta return for more than a couple years here.  Hopefully, they will be in full bloom for next week.
 Since we saw a lot of these individual patches close up last week, lets see the more overall view.  This is the side of the backyard...
 This is the center...
And this is from the other side.
The first hostas are coming up.  They'll be nice soon!
Sadly, these early daffodills are all faded now.  Bye til next year!
But the apple trees are bloomin now.  These are down low so we can see them good...
 And here at the end of the tour, there is a surprise.  Its a wildlife camera!  Can ya imagine this thing?  It takes pictures ON ITS OWN when somethin moves in front of it!!!  TBT got it when Ayla was new here, but it kinna got left inna closet.  Now it is set up aimed at a hole in the ground.  We cant wait ta see what lives in the hole. 

Well, thats the tour fer today!  But please join us on the deck.  We can watch the birdies at the feeder, and Ayla has prepared some snacks and drinks...
