Gardening in Central Mississippi-2013


Just a glimpse of a few things blooming in my yard right now. Got my green thumb from my dad ! As you will see, I love mixing hydrangeas and a variety of day lilies. My yard is my "happy place" !!
First flower bed I created when we moved 4 years ago. That's my new greenhouse my husband built for me last year in the background.
