I LOVE Spring!



I have a new little family living in my Jasmine vines!  How sweet is this little momma protecting her unborn children.


And, I think I know why they call these KNOCKOUT Roses!

They are really "knockouts" this year!

Your roses are beautiful!!! I've never tried growing roses, but my momma was telling me today that knock out roses are suppose to be easy to grow. I may have to give them a try.

What beautiful roses! I love the color!

We have little birds that like to makes nests each year in our hanging baskets. It's a great spot for their safety -- predators can't reach them.

When I read the phrase "protecting her unborn", I couldn't help but think of all the aborted babies in this country throughout the years. It makes my heart sad.

Thanks for sharing these beautiful pics!

I love spring too, and how SWEET that you have a baby bird to fill your blooms. And speaking of Spring, I'm so proud of you for "springing" into action and starting The Shred! You look great and I'm sure it will get easier. I would love to try it sometime. Have a Happy Mothers Day and I will see you soon :)

Oh what a beautiful site!!! The mama bird in her nest is so sweet and your roses are indeed, "Knock-outs!" Do they have a great fragrance too? I have missed stopping by and have lots to catch up on in "Mimi's Memories!" How are preparations going for the upcoming mission trip? I've been thinking about you!
