Amaryllis starting to bloom. There are a few more on the far side that aren't quite budding. Those are my pale ones.

A few new wave petunias.

A few old snapdragons from last year that came back beautifully

These are also from last year. They were in with my tomatoes for some color.

Day lilies

Thriving along the wall

Verbena gone wild. Too bad those down farther just never seem to make it :(

One of the few daisies surviving this year. It's too wet for them in this side. Although some of these are a few years old ... Hummm

Iris. Just ONE bud out there. Wonder what I need to do to encourage them??

And THIS is the price we pay for such lovely green spring. Pollen everywhere from the pines. Yuck. Time to wash the deck stuff off!!

Mom and dads yard sale

The yard sale/AKA garage clean out was scheduled for the weekend of the 1st but rain and a near tornado coming through to the north of us put a stop to that.

The sale moved out to the 8th and 9th.

It was a slow day in Friday but I enjoyed watching the birds while snuggling up on the porch. It turned out to be a cold and windy weekend for a yard sale.

Tuesday mom and I took the nicer things to the Consigment store in hopes of selling a bit more.

Today we did the run to the recycle place for all the mixed metals.

And with that we're done and ... Drum roll please. No. More. Garage. Sales. Ever.
