We have been working so hard lately. Spring in the garden here at the castle is in full swing! This is truly my favorite time year in our back yard.
As you can see everything is green and blooming.
Lucky me, a lot of things over wintered since we had such a mild winter.
Unlucky me, I’m sure we will also have more bugs too.
The pond lilies are going crazy!
So crazy that I may have to thin them out a bit.
There are two different colors of lilies, white and pink. I love the pink during the day because they add some much needed color to that area.
However, the white are my favorite as they practically glow at night!
The partio area is really coming along.
I’ve added new pillows, lots of flowers, and planted a few more stepables between the pavers.
At the east end of the partio, near the house, The Hubs added a new smoker and a new grill.
Honestly, is there anything better than fresh food from the farmers market cooked out on the grill?
The area to the west of the partio is one of my favorite places to sit and enjoy the flowers.
Earlier in the month, I shared a picture of the clematis with you on Instagram, but it is nothing compared to what it looks like now!
I even have a pair of cardinals nesting in this beautiful plant.
On the front of the shed we planted bougainvillea in our large pots this year.
I love the deep hot pink/ burgundy color of it.
In the middle of working, we made a short trip to see our older son.
He took us to Neighbors Restaurant for lunch in Bastrop, TX.
This is such a cool restaurant!
It has wonderful food and great atmosphere.
We sat outside on the deck overlooking the Colorado River.
I could have stayed there all day!
Unfortunately, we had to come back and do some more work in the backyard.
We have put up a new fence, added new white trellises and added more plants that I scored at the HEB in Bastrop!
However, like with anything else, Spring in the garden means more work before we can sit back and enjoy.
We still have to stain the fence, put up the redneck pool and I am sure that I will add more flowers before it is all said and done.
Until next time….
