Spring is (Finally!) Springing!

My favorite time of the year is finally here!  

This is the flowering vine that I planted a few years ago. It now comes out every Spring with these beautiful yellow flowers but i don't remember what this vine is. If you know, please tell me!

This past winter seemed to go on forever!  Thankfully in Northern Virginia, the temps are warming up, we can turn off the heat, open the doors and welcome all the GREEN, YELLOW, PINK, BLUE and other colors of this blessed season.

This bed of tulips will hopefully be planted with tomatoes if my arm and shoulder get sufficiently well soon so that I can plant them.

The flowering vine up close. What IS this vine? Honesuckle?

 What’s more romantic than Spring?!  Here’s some of the shots of my deck and backyard.  Also some shots of the stuff I’m trying to grow from seed.  Good luck little seeds …

Good luck little seedlings!

Closeup of more of my tulips. Glad I took the time in the fall to plant them!

The yellow vine is Carolina Jasmine. It smells heavenly! Your tulips are beautiful, too! I have photos of your tulips when Harry and I visited the first time. That was such a wonderful trip. I treasure the memories of our “Honeymoon”. Love, Diane
