What's Growing in the Yard?

Spring has sprung in the yard!

I have been anticipating new growth this first Spring season in our yard. Besides Grandma's peonies, which are coming up beautifully I might add, there are things popping up all over the place. I know the names of some of the blooms, but will have to wait until the others decide to show their pretty faces before I can name them.

The peonies by the front step are the tallest so far.
However, every one on the divided plants is growing like crazy!
I'm so excited to show you more when they finally bloom.
Can anyone out there give me a good reason to keep this yucky yucca that's growing at the front fence?
We discovered this moth just emerged from it's cocoon.
It was about four inches from antenna to wingtip.
I waited and waited for it to open it's wings,
but it was being private.
Having always admired redbud trees in other people's yards,
I was thrilled to find out this beauty was in my own backyard.

I woke up one morning to find the bunch of sticks beside the
porch had burst into yellow blooms!
Nothing says "Hello Springtime" like forsythia.
Plants aren't the only things growing at A House and Yard.
Bonnie and Clyde are getting bigger every day.

Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. 
They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon 
in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 
And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today 
and thrown into the fire tomorrow, 
he will certainly care for you. 
Matthew 6:28-30 NLT

I hope this Spring finds you happy and blessed!
