Springtime Flowers Everywhere!

I am finally rested from our move and trying to rest from the Lyme's Disease. I can finally look around my new surroundings and see all the Spring flowers everyone has growing. I haven't been able to find my camera, so I had to rely on pictures from pinterest.com for this post. Here are a few flowers I have seen around Charlotte in my travels:
Daffodils are all done in Charlotte, but I loved this picture!
Don't you just love these old clay pots with the pansies. I always smile when I see pansies!
John used to always buy me a hanging basket of fuschia for Mother's Day from the girls. The hummingbirds love these. When we were visiting Ireland fushcia just grow along the road as shrubs-really beautiful!
I thought this was a wonderful idea-growing geraniums in galvanized buckets!
My grandmother loved lily of the valley. This photo is so pretty!
I can't wait to get our own house. I am going to plant alot of peonies for the Spring! I have a tree peony but unfortunately this year it didn't bloom. I think it really needs to go into the ground. It is hanging out at Megan's house right now until after we get in the house.
Sweet Peas are a favorite of mine. The smell so good and they look so dainty and beautiful. Very pretty colors!!
Wisteria is all done blooming here in Charlotte too! We had the warm spell and that just made it bloom really quick this year. I hardly got a chance to enjoy it. This photo is just so beautiful!! Hope you enjoyed looking at the lovely flowers I found on pinterest.com! ENJOY!!

Oh wow! These are so beautiful!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
