FUN MONDAY - WALKABOUT




~THIS WEEK'S FUN MONDAY HOST: The Lurchers


~THE ASSIGMENT ~To take them on your favourite walk. In words or pictures. Or Both of course! Tell them why it’s your favourite and point out things of intrest on the way.

With my knee still looking like a bruised grapefruit, the almost daily rain shower’s, 14 hour work days , family obligations, and the endless string of chores my walks have pretty much been limited to the back yard. So here is a few pics.


Big THANKS to The Lurchers for take on hosting
Thanks to all for stopping by be sure to visit the rest of the

Gee, you really have a green thumb! I wish I had all those flowers in my yard. As it is, my flowers are pretty much considered weeds by most ;) Are those lily-of-the-valleys? Very pretty.

Alison said...

karisma said...

Fantastic pictures! I could just stay in that back yard forever! We have been having a lot of rain here also lately! I am quite fed up with it! I hope your knee feels better soon. Hugs

Lovely flowers. We've had such a chilly spring that flowers like Bleeding Heart are just starting to bloom now. Seems to be taking forever.

Thanks for your comment, but I wanted to tell you, I'm in Southern California, and Murray Canyon is right outside Palm Springs. But winter is still the best time.

Sayre said...

Spring has definitely sprung in your neck of the woods!

jennifer said...

OH WOW! All in your backyard? You know, my favorite may be the humble little violet peeking her head up out of the grass.

Be blessed.

What gorgeous flowers! You truly have a green thumb even with a ginormous knee!

Faye said...

Photos by a confirmed gardener, I think. Especially loved the bleeding hearts and the flowering crabapple(?) at the very end. Are your knees sore from gardening?

Mariposa said...

Have a nice week ahead!
