Loves the chicken coop :-)
Spring here in SE WA means the beginning of leaves on the lilac about an inch long!

Dani said...

Froggy, sending good thoughts to Abby. Hope those stitches stay in place. :)

Darla said...

Goodness Dani! It's all so beautiful, I love this area. Now, ID the flowers please.

Dani said...

Darla, first pic is a rose scented geranium, the purple flowers are from a bush bean and the others are sweet peas.

Darla said...

thanks....love the geranium....

Oooh, so pretty! I have no success with sweet peas, but I sure do love them.

What is Maggie chewing on??? Really it's better to find out now because later when she throws it up it will be much harder to identify.

Beautiful - and the comments were lovely - until Shamy spoke... snort

Big Shamu said...

Bhahahhaha. Welcome to the cold hard reality of Shamy World.

Dani said...

Shamy, piece of straw from the chicken coop. At least it's better than the pine bark I'm always pulling out of her mouth.

MakingSpace said...

haha

Dani said...

Do they really need to chew on everything though? GAH!

MakingSpace said...

Like havin' babies again...

Erin said...

so beautiful! You must spend every moment tending to all those flowers!

Lovely photos, Dani! And it's actually spring here too - I can tell because it got to 70 degrees and, most importantly, the food trucks are back :)

Have a great weekend my friends!


I'm gonna work in the garden and get some more seeds sown. Then hit a quilt show with the family. :)

I saw some silly silky chickens at a kayak rental place today and instantly thought of you.

Your yard is SO beautiful!! I think Southern Living should come and take pics.

Aunty Belle said...

Your garden, and pups, look fabulous! What a wonderful spring!!

Boxer said...

when I was at the dog show last week I paid close attention to the poodles because of you. They are so smart and well behaved. Or, they were at the show. ;-)

I think your back yard is absolutely charming. Picture perfect.

Melissa said...

Lovely! Never would have guessed the rose-scented geranium. Lovely! My perennial geraniums are STINKY!

Susan said...

Your vegetable garden looks exceptional...right out of a magazine.
