In my "garden"...

I do not have a green thumb. I love flowers but I sometimes have trouble distinguishing a good plant and a dandelion!! (I'm almost serious!!)

Here are a couple of plants that I have in my backyard.

My other problem is that I have no memory for the name of flowers... so this is my pink plant!! ;) Pat, maybe you can help me here??!!










This plant is called in French bleeding heart... not sure if it's the same in English - though I am sure it has a real name!!

This one, I know!!! My beautiful lilac tree! So many flowers - the smell is heavenly!!








And these, I have everywhere - they took control of my lawn... but aren't they pretty??!! ;)

I just love lilacs. I planned my wedding around them being in bloom in gma's yard...

Sharon said...

Beautiful! I have never seen white lilacs before.

I'm with you. I love flowers, but am not a green thumb at all! The pink flowers are beautiful. I love your lilacs. Their smell is heavenly. And your dandelions are pretty too...even though I hate it when they are all over my lawn!

Your bright pink azalea is great - true color here. And the lilac...my favorite flower...and you have captured many moods of it here; I especially like the 3rd shot. I'd like to bury my face right into those. With your pics, I almost feel I can! ML

Celine, these are wonderful!! What a great yard!! Those lilacs are divine; I can almost smell that wonderful fragrance. Yes, it is Bleeding Heart in English, too. Nice dandelions; they may be weeds, but they are interesting little things. I am not sure what the pink is--it's not an azaela; the shrub itself and the flowers are the wrong shape, even though the color is right. It is beautiful, though. Love those pink trumpets.

Beautiful!

They're called bleeding hearts here too, but I think it sounds prettier in French. You can tell how close we are geographically--we have all the same things in bloom! These are so pretty--I have a black thumb so I mostly have to go to other gardens to get pretty flower photos.

So pretty and lush with flowers! Wonderful. I like the dandelion against the blue too.

You have way more of a green thumb than me! Love these flowers so colorful, and your dandelion shots rock.
