May 1st: Front Yard Flowerbed

The careful observer will note that I like a lush and full garden.  In the case of this frontyard flowerbed, that means planting with an awareness of the timing of blooms.  Tulips and daffodils bloom early (the last of them are finishing up this week) and that's a good thing because the hostas at the front of the flowerbed have grown full and lush.
The rose of Sharon tree is starting to fill in and the azalea bushes are in their full glory this week. Things are lovely.
When we get home each afternoon, this is the first flowerbed that I see.  Often, there's a cat in the windowsill above to welcome us.  And life doesn't get much better than that.
