Such beautiful pictures! I love the one of the hummingbird moth. I've never seen one of those before. Hope you're having a great time with everyone this weekend.
Your plants are beautiful Kim. The Hummingbird moth... I planted a lot of hummingbird/butterfly plants in the front garden and that was when I saw my first Hummingbird moth. So beautiful. The Ruby throat Hummingbirds are back ( has been for a few weeks) and they have to share the garden :-)Hugs, Gee
I planted verbena last year after seeing how pretty yours was. It really did well and ended up taking over a few beds. :) It's so pretty when it's blooming. I have some loropetalum too. I like how the leaves change from purple in the winter to green in the summer. You have a lovely garden.
so pretty. I can't seem to get verbena to grow for me. may have to try somewhere else in the yard. thanks for sharing.
Ah... you know what is pretty with the ugly? Wait for the moon to shine on the pollen then take pics. Turn a ugly to a pretty In pictures. Who knew.. a hummingbird moth? I had no idea. Good to know. Hugs. Tammy
Gorgeous, those colors are A M A Z I N G!!!
Such gorgeous blooms everywhere and I've never heard of the hummingbird moth. I'm with you on the pollen!
Gorgeous pics, Kim. I love verbena but also agree it starts to look leggy and unsightly at the end of the season. We have a lot of lantana and the same thing happens to it. Love it for most of the season tho.
I forget (until I see it again) how beautiful your yard is. You can tell that you have put a lot of love and effort into it. It is just gorgeous. I hope you are having a ball-I'm sure you are. xo Diana
You and your husband do a fabulous landscaping job. Love the verbena, and I have never seen nor heard of a hummingbird moth. Sweet Suzy H. shared a photo of your group at dinner, looked like all were having a great time. xo
Your yard is beautiful during all times of the year Kim, but most especially in springtime. Our verbena has gone crazy too, and I love the vibrant purple color!I hope you are having a wonderful time at the market!Kat
Your yard is beautiful and I think the "little shrub out front" is a fothergilla. ---Bev S.
Oh so beautiful... the pictures, the colors, the hummingbird moth, the pond ... pretty!
Spring has sprung in your neck of the woods! We are covered in pollen. Your verbena is prolific and beautiful!
I love the LIFE that Spring brings! Beautiful flowers! And, I don't ever think I have seen a hummingbird moth? Interesting. Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle
Thanks for sharing. What a beautiful sea of lilac you have blooming in your yard. It is delightful. Enjoy the site and the lovely spring weather.Blessings,Deborah H. Bateman - Author
your yard is sooo beautiful!!!
Love your gorgeous peeks of spring blooms, waiting patiently in CO!
We used to get the hummingbird moths at the old house, hope we get them here too. Your flowering plants and bushes look so pretty! XO, Pinky
How lovely to live in the south, and see all that beauty for months longer than we do ! Here in Cleveland, Ohio the only things blooming right now are daffodils and the beginning of the forsythia...Everything else in dull, gray, and lifeless ! Spring is coming very slowly to us this year....thanks for letting me enjoy the beauty around you !!
Beautiful snipits of the yard...and what a difference the rain makes...love the pond and the beautifully manicured lawn!...and what a great shot of the Hummingbird!
Gorgeous spring color, Kim!Kathy
Beautiful! Much less going on up North so it is fun to view something like this :)
What beautiful flowers Kim! We aren't quite there yet, being in the Midwest. The weather can't make up its mind if it wants to be spring or winter still. :( I had one of those hummingbird moths a few years ago. It came by in the evening and was hovering over our hanging baskets on the deck, and with the poor light, we all thought it was a hummingbird. We finally figured it out after a little while, but they are a little confounding when you haven't seen them before. Their little bodies are shaped the same. Have a great weekend!Debbie
