Relocate to Wisconsin

Where have all (most) of the flowers gone....long time passing

  We don't have very green thumbs at our house....and we have trees and a collection of bushes.  We have a street lamp

with a mini retaining wall which had a collection of japanese lilies...a vibrant red....with other ...yes purple blooms that surrounded them.We have two "raised beds" in the front of red japanese liliesthe house that both have treese and are surrounded by an assortment of day lilies with long lasting and various colors of blooms....they spread and we divide and share them with "lily-less" neighbors and friends...they come back every year stronger and more vibrant than ever.   Yes....these would be a great subject for @Belinda Spillman's challenge I thought on showing the natural beauty of our personal landscape design.

       Wisconsin has to "make room" for four seasons......sometimes we have almost "no spring" and leap into summer which may or may not last into what the calendar says is fall.  The Daylilies require no attention especially this soggy summer and open to greet the day every day with huge blossoms. 

       They have a little  fragrance...or at least we though it was little...until we went to capture some of their beauty foDeer Tracksr their post and found that the fragrance was very appealing to  some of our four legged neighbors who were not nearly so numerous since the Country Estates (our New Berlin Deersub division) had been completely filled with homes.    Our "visitors" literally forgot to cover their tracks...and they could be easily  traced to the wild area behind our house.  I love Bambi just as much as the next person....and for years we could only see "family members" occasionally....cute little fawns with their Mom's...a rack of antlers here and there....until now when the nocturnal munchings interrupted what would have been a more colorful landscape display.  On the other side of the front yard...the lilies surround the "islands" . The families must have been looking for appetizers and not a whole dinner...they are still there. 

      An intentional color assortment...they have been untouched by four footed visitors.

    Red Bud tree blooming  In the very favorite flowers are the ones that grow on our Red Bud tree. (Flowers are actually purplish-pink.) It signals the arrival of spring and "gives permission" for all of the other flowers to bloom. 

    We also have a purple...but of course...iris patch...but they have blessed us with blooms and gone back to their dormant stage until next spring.  

     If you want to explore all four seasons in their splendor as a new resident of southeastern Wisconsin...or you are up or down sizing....Call the Hansons....we will find you the house and the landscape you will want to call home.
