Greenery for good (and other colors of the rainbow, too)

In honor of Earth Day today, I’m sharing images of beauty taken over the past four years in my yard, specifically the front garden.

I can take no credit for this flower garden. It was originally planted by members of the congregation who used to attend church in what is now our home. It’s now tended by my husband, our hired man and my husband’s uncle when he pays us a visit.

Could those be tulips growing in my yard?
Indeed, yes! Tulips!
Tiptoe … through the tulips … with me.

But tulips aren’t the other perennial growing in this garden.

Daffodils are an optimistic flower. And foolproof.
Tyler planted his “garden art” compass among the phlos before we knew how many beautiful blooms would be thriving there.
Turk’s cap lily are perhaps the most ostentatious flower growing in the garden.

Happy Earth Day. Save the earth, and the earth will save you.
