A UKRAINE GARDEN WALK IN MAY


 Come walk through my yard with me.  I've been too long away from my blog so here's what happened in the yard in May.  Above was a rare foggy morning in the back yard.
 The rest of these pictures are from the front yard.  In Ukraine houses have fences all around them including across the front.
 Peonies are always so beautiful.  I have white ones and red ones too.

 Iris and evergreens...
 Spiderwort....
 In the Russian language (that's what I speak here) these are called "Little Bells."  I don't know what they would be in English.  Behind are two varieties of hosta.





 The garden is just another art expression for me.  I love the flowers.

 Roses and strawberries.  The strawberries are in several of my flowerbeds.

I think these are called "Sweet Williams."  Thanks for stopping by. Sure appreciate it.

Beautiful! Love the huge vase of white flowers on the ledge, and your rock path. Everything is so pretty, the fog lends a nice touch.

Alice & Patti, thanks for stopping by for a visit. Hope to post all the summer months.

Wow, Coleen!!! That first one is a painting waiting to happen. You must be a bundle of energy to tend to that gorgeous garden and do all you do with your Ukrainian ministry.

Coleen said...

Faye, paint it if you'd like. You are much more of a painter than I. The garden was developed over the last 17 years so there is not so much to do now, but keep it up, tho' that can get involved. Praise God that I have a helper.
