The drought has ended in Oklahoma. Praise God. We had five to six inches of rain at our house, and it rained off and on all day. I worked in the rose bed which I’ll write about later, but I wanted to show you the Easter eggs which have shown up early throughout the garden. Ignore the weeds please. I still have so many and probably will have some until winter. I do my best, but I’m not perfect, and neither is my garden.
It is, however, beautiful.
Where are the Easter eggs you ask? Look! They’re here, there and everywhere. My tulips and daffodils, planted for Easter have arisen already.
Not what I’d planned, but you know what happens when you make plans, don’t you?
I hope everyone is having a beautiful spring, and that cold weather, which is always a threat until mid-April, stays far, far away.
I found your “Easter eggs” right away, they are the same kind that I have! I’m glad you finally got some much-needed rain. May it continue onward all summer long.
Dee you have so much beautiful color in your garden.
Well honey, we got some of that blessed rain here in California too. Thank goodness. I couldn’t even really dig in the soil it was so hard despite all my layers of mulch and compost. I was getting scared. I don’t ever take rain for granted and I still try to catch rainwater everywhere. I need about a 20,000 gallon cistern buried in our backyard.
Your garden looks waaaaay brighter than mine. I have so many herbs and vegetables. Not a lot of floral color here, but I still love the awakening plants.
Enjoyed looking at all the colorful spots throughout your garden. I envy your flat land and sunny location. We have shade and lots of steps and hillsides — these knees don’t always cooperate! Look forward to meeting you in NC, and I’m glad you’ve had some relief from the drought.
DJ, thanks so much. I had to laugh at the flat and sunny part. Most of my garden is on a long hill. to keep viewers from losing their minds, I sometimes straighten the photos in the lower garden. Otherwise, people would have headaches. Thanks again for stopping by and commenting!
I was so very happy to see the pond level rise up to the dock! And the blooms are everywhere! We even have bluebirds nesting. This is the best spring in years. Your yard is lovely! Enjoy!
Oh, honey bunny, what glory! Thanks for getting to see once again your dear home. Brings memories of when you first started, a lifetime ago, and we all came to lunch. Thank you for the inspiration to keep pressing on, and that we do reap the beauty we sow, and far more! Isn’t being out of drought pure blessedness?!

Love the pops of color! Spring is here. We got rain too.
I hope you are right about the cold not coming back. At this point it would be impossible to put the genie back in the bottle.
What a wonderful, crazy spring! The drought is over for now and gardeners are dancing for joy!
Your garden shows the rewards of all the work you’ve put into it. Glad to see you have time to enjoy it all.
Hugs to you.
Gardeners need a good sense of humor especially with the vagaries of weather we’ve had over the past several years. Your garden looks delightful and I totally love the mix of colors. I am rejoicing with you and had to smile to when I read~”It looks a bit bedraggled from all the rain.” xoxogail
Gail, no kidding. It’s been weird these last few years, but I guess weird weather is the new black. 🙂 xoxo to you too.

Gorgeous!! I snapped some photos yesterday too, so happy to be this drenched! Your colliding bloom times seem like such a happy surprise! xoxo
Thanks Marie. I’m thrilled about the rain too. We’ve waited so long, but not as long as poor Texas.
We have tulips, daffodils, redbuds, and all the normal spring goodies blooming right now too. I’m just so grateful for the rain and hoping it will continue…off and on…at a good rate, of course. 🙂
Yes, Stacey, that would certainly be a good thing wouldn’t it? 🙂
Lisa at Greenbow
We need some of that rain Dee. Your garden looks so cheerful with those Easter colors sprinkled about. We won’t have Easter flowers this year. Here we will have our early June flowers blooming for Easter if this warm weather continues. Crazy spring. One we will remember for a long time. Have a great weekend.
Lisa, I sent the rain on to you. Did you get it?
What a beautiful garden. I look forward to seeing how it changes as the season progresses. I rejoice with you over the rain!
Let’s do a happy dance shall we? I’m so excited we got rain. Hurray!
Beautiful Easter Egg Colors!
Thank you Lea and Happy Spring to you too!
Gorgeous eye candy in the garden! Love all the tulips and daffodils! Mine are blooming too and the redbuds are just so pretty this week in OKC! Happy Spring and Happy Gardening!
Thank you Sonia. They are so pretty aren’t they? The purple backdrop of the redbuds is wonderful.
My plans for Easter flowers are all awry, too. Oh, well, something will surely be blooming in a few weeks. In the meantime, I pray we don’t have a cold April after 7 of the last 8 days in Indianapolis had record high temps.
No, no, cold April. Please no. I’m begging the heavens.

Dee so happy to know the drought has ended for you…love all the spring colors…my garden is too warm and racing through its early blooms…I am running to catch it on camera…I always ignore the weeds both in my garden and others…I think I have learned to filter them out completely 🙂
Thank you Donna. The weather is so much better. I’m hoping this good fortune remains.
