The view from my back door

Most of these flowers on the lower level are day lillies. Above is a bleeding heart and a peony and the bush to the left side had the prettiest pink blossoms on it. I don't know what it is, but wish it lasted longer.

This fish is my DH art work. He was a welder at one time and used scrap metal to make lots of fun things. He made 2 dinosaurs! I'll try to find a photo of them. He is quite an artist! We went to a "hunny do" quilting class and he is better at cutting fabric than I am. He is so precise and takes his time to do sure every cut is perfect. After the class I found out the reason he agreed to go with me was so he could go on a fishing weekend with some of his buddys!!

This is the other side of the wall in the back yard. The red flowers are fern peonys. They are beautiful, but don't last long. On the top corner of the wall there are yellow iris in bloom.

On top of this section of the wall are iris. These are the green dots I saw awhile back. Look at all the wonderful greenery now. I love spring.

And my grandson!

Carson is trying to decide if he can eat this toy! He's been chewing on everything and his first tooth finally popped thru.
