What's Current In our Yard # 1

 Sunday AM blooms

 Our two new moss rose, one is orange and one is yellow. Still in their containers from Home Depot

 OOPS! what's this one?

Oh, that's The keeper of the POOL  and below is his Mango tree in the bucket garden, planted from a seed.


MadSnapper Trivia: Little know facts about ME
In 1984 I drove an 18 Wheeler for J.B. Hunt Trucking and put 75,000 miles on a brand new cab over truck touching all but 7 of the states.

Your pool keep certainly is a handsome 'bloom' around your home.... Love your photos, Sandra, and I'm still in awe of your header...

Headed out on a little 'excursion' today..
Hugs,

Good morning. I must say that the flowers of spring have your yard beat today. Everything is in full bloom here in Virginia...so lovely.

I would LOVE to drive an 18 wheeler!!!!! Anywhere, anytime.

I'm impressed that you have a "pool boy". I don't even have a pool.

Best,
Bonnie

I love moss roses. A mango tree grown from seed - how cool!

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

You have a beautiful bloomin' yard, love the moss rose.

The pool keeper picture is a good one too!!! Love how you captured the ???memosa limb? and hubby is softened in the back. BOY, if I had that pool I would be doing laps in it several times a day. I love the water.

Such nice, colorful blooms, Sandra. Love the pool boy "shot" and how fun that you drove an 18 wheeler and saw so much of the country!

Scott said...

A beautiful and colorful way to start the day. Thanks for shopping at Home Depot so they can keep paying me. Yes, I work there two days a week. I was totally surprised that you drove an 18 wheeler. . . Why only one year?

you are something else...

Madi and Mom said...

OH MY STARS you drove a truck...what was your handle? LOL

Ok I see a pool in your yard. Do you require reservations to use the facilities?
Hugs Madi

Tipper said...

Love the photos-especially the last one! And who knew you were a trucker-how cool is that : )

Mamabug said...

Love those bright beautiful blooms! You never cease to amaze me girl! I used to ride with hubby when he drove an east coast route years ago.

Beth said...

Thank you so much for stopping by my new blog! I appreciate it! I know I won’t be doing this daily but will be fun to share some of the things going on in my life! I love the flowers! SO pretty!

SweetMarie said...

Your blooms in your yard are so pretty! You have a pool and a pool boy. :) I would love a pool! We have two in the community, but it's not quite the same. You are full of surprises Sandra! Hubby is familiar with that kind of truck. I can't imagine even attempting that! You go girl!

Ginny said...

That is a part of your life that I don't know, and I imagine would make for some interesting posts. These roses are beautiful, I love the colors, and I would not have known they are roses, what kind? Maybe knock-out roses or tea roses? The blue flowers are beautiful!!! Are they wild morning glories? Probably not, you grow things down there that I have never seen before!

Kilauea Poetry said...

The flowers are gorgeous and your header is one of my favorites! No, I didn't know that about you!! My my (lol)Sounds very interesting!! Wishing you a wonderful afternoon Sandra-

Eva Ason said...

Hello my friend, a bit late to visit but here I am lol! You certainly have a beautiful garden, so many hidden treasures! How cool to drive an 18 wheeler!!! you're so lucky. My dad was a truck driver, and I enjoyed going with him when I was a little girl.
Hope your day is running smoothly!

barbara l. hale said...

BTW...very impressed that you drove a truck that far and wide.

Chatty Crone said...

Are you kidding - you drove a truck - that far - and this isn't April's Fool? Wow you never told me that.
Loved the pool keeper and your gorgeous flowers.

Deb said...

That is cool you were a trucker....your flowers and plants are awesome

Gail said...

Great pictures. Love the moss flowers are whatever they're called.

Rose said...

NOW I am jealous...I would have loved to drive a truck...my FIL was a truck driver!~

LC said...

Whoa! Was already in awe of your blossoms, especially the bougainvillea. But I am even more in awe of anyone who can drive an 18-wheeler rig! And aren't you lucky to have dear hubby as pool maintenance service. Gave me a chuckle that dear hubby is one of your Sunday a.m. blooms!

Angela said...

I had no idea that you drove an 18 wheeler! That is WILD! I do good to drive my F150! lol

Beautiful flowers around your house Sandra! We just have the wild blooms from God going on at our house right now. Too early to plant. Even though it is tempting because it's so warm.

RoeH said...

I love your yard. Florida is such a pretty state. All that gorgeous green and floral.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I enjoyed the flowers. No flowers on my yard yet.

missing moments said...

Gotta love those pool boys! Love that fact about you! You are one hot mama!

Susannah said...

Now...doesn't he look like the nicest pool boy you ever saw? He must be a keeper!!!! Do you use the pool everyday. We have one but our time is limited to just June through September. But I love the water so it is an everyday occurance. I love the mango tree that you started from a seed. I love your yard...but what I love the most is that you
always have something growing that is different. Have you ever grown orchids?

Susannah said...

PS - An 18 wheeler? Good for you!!! Come pick me up and we'll go for a little spin!!!!

BlueShell said...

What a magnificent set os flowers, Sandra...Oh...and I can see your husband by the pool..LOL...is that jake?

Kisses.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

The flowers are beautiful and I love your pool boy :) That is very interesting about you driving a truck. Never would have thought that up if I was asked the question.

Debra Dickinson said...
