Finding Spring

We are finally getting a little warm up in our weather and some sunshine. It will be good to have some dry days to be able to get the planter beds weeded.

I’m sure that many of you have been strolling around your local garden shops to see if there is something new to add to you gardens. We bought a new Rhododendron while we were at Meerkerk Rhododendron Garden that we are finding a spot for.

I am not a gardener. I mow the lawn happily but I always have a little skepticism on whether something new that I plant will survive. I am very thankful when our plants revive themselves in the Spring and Summer. I am conscious of the Master Gardener and the beauty He has created for us to enjoy.  Just walking in a beautiful garden causes me to thank God for his creation. Sometimes it even makes me sing… out loud. Gifted earthly gardeners are very much appreciated by me, too.

I’m linking up with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. I hope to get around to see your mosaics. I’ll be on the road tomorrow so I might be late in visiting.

  1. The tulips are gorgeous. And I love going to the local garden centers. Love the shot of all the colorful pots. I wish I could go shopping for plants tomorrow instead of going to work. Wonderful post and photos.

  2. The tulips are just gorgeous. Hybird Rhodies are blooming here now but the native ones are just budding out! We have lots of them here in the mountains and love the variety of colors!

  3. Beautiful photos! What a gorgeous “extended arch”–and I see you have a lot of pots in your one photo as I do! Have a good week!

  4. Oh, yes, you’ve found spring. I’ve never seen more stunning tulips. I think I need at least 50 bulbs for next spring. Gorgeous colors…rich and vibrant.

  5. Being around gardens does feel like a sacred place. Of course any place we are with Him in our hearts is sacred. Love your photos. All our tulips and our lilacs are already gone. Blessings

  6. Your tulip photos are so beautiful. Love that colour. Garden centres, for me, are places of inspiration, and a bit of panic as I think of all the work to get my garden to look the way I’d like. I settle for something between.

  7. The tulips look so colourful and lovely. It is one of the great pleasure of spring to visit different nurseries and see what one could find. I am sure you’ll find a nice spot for your rhododendron.

  8. If you play in the garden you are a gardener. I am always trying to find homes for new plants I have purchased. Happy gardening.

  9. I tend to hope for the best with my garden, but I do love having one…although I may forget the names of some plants. Your tulip collage is just gorgeous; I’m rather partial to tulips and yours are such a lovely colour.

  10. I just love the color that explodes on the world with Spring. I’ve been learning by trial and error over the years….and I pray HARD for my gardens. May His green thumb bring forth success in your yard!

  11. Your garden center is beautiful, Ellen! It is a lovely garden in itself…the tulips are so colorful!

    I never plant until after Mother’s Day as it can still be cold and chilly here until then. I am praying for warm and sunny weather to soon arrive for my daughter’s wedding
