New Yard Photos and a Rainbow










We had a brief break in the seemingly endless storms, so I popped outside to snap a few pictures of the new back yard. As I stepped out the door, I saw one of the largest and brightest rainbows I had ever seen!

Let's walk up to the top of the hill to get a better view.



Wasn't it pretty? Ok, let's head back down the hill and I'll show you a closer view of some of the plantings in back.

This is the view from the deck and also out the french doors of the master bedroom.



There are a bunch of hostas and sweet Lily of the Valley around the tree. Small mounds of Forget-me-nots are also dotted around the yard.

And here's a couple of close-ups.


Bright orange poppies are just about to open in the front yard, so as soon as they do, I'll take a few pictures and show you that area. :-)


Have a great week everyone!

Without your help, I wouldn't've been able to do those placemats. I have another set to post about soon. I'm still trying to figure how to thank you soooo much :)
