Outdoor Wednesday

Welcome to another Outdoor Wednesday here in Edmond, Oklahoma.
I hate to rub it in but the weather here has just been breath taking.
We've been able to walk and garden as much as we want.
Let's tour the yard.
My favorite geraniums.
Saint Fiacre

You can read about him by clicking here.

Mossy ball.

Spiraea in bloom.

Lots of blooms on our oak leaf hydrangeas.

Thank you so much to Susan for hosting Outdoor Wednesday.

Go by and visit all of the other participants who love their yards too.

Love the hydrangeas and spirea also. The gardens are such a blessing. I am loving my more everyday.

Stacey, thanks for the information on St. Fiacre. I wasn't familiar with him so I was interested to read that he was an Irish saint who went to France for his ministry.

Your flowers are lovely, and I'm glad you are having nice weather. We've had loads of rain, but at least our grass is looking very green! :-)

Happy Outdoor Wednesday...

Hi Stacey,

It is about time that we are all having some good weather!! Well, it's not going that great here now~will be going down to 50 degrees at night for the next week. That is NOT good for the flowers!!

I have been seeing a lot of Oak Leaf Hydrangeas since I started blogging. Yours is just gorgeous, especially in that natural setting. But I had never seen one before until recently and I am wondering if they just don't grow in my climate...

Love your spiraea. They are good in shade. aren't they? Just love your yard, Stacey! Happy OW!! :-)

The garden ornaments re wonderful!!! I love the moss ball and the story of St Fiacre.

Nola @ the Alamo said...

It's all pretty, but especially the hydrangea. I've never tried to grow one, but for years I enjoyed my neighbor's that was only about 10' from my back deck.

Christi @ A Southern Life said...

Oklahoma, we know we belong to the land, yes sir! Just lovely!

Liz said...

It is wonderful to be able to walk among the flowers all the time isn't it? I love being able to go out in my yard at night now and feel the very warm breeze.

Happy OW

Nancy said...

Hey Stacey,

I just had to sit down a min. and check in with you! We are still at the beach, and I am so ready to go home...LOL ;) Starting to miss blogging to! I haven't took the time to check in with everyone, just enjoying alot of other things this week!

Your flowers are just lovely and I can tell you have been having nice weather...it shows in your flowers!

I have lots of things to share when I get home. We are heading home on Friday. I hope I will have time to post sometime Sat...(I hope;)

Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Talk to you later, Nancy

April said...

I could, literally, pitch and tent in your backyard and never leave. Of course, that would probably be kind of creepy, huh? LOL!

Lisa said...

Your yard looks beautiful! Enjoy the weather, it's raining here )O:

Domestic Designer said...

Mary said...

Your yard is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your photos with us. I never knew cab drivers gad a patron saint. I learned something new today.

Rechelle ~Walnuthaven Cottage~ said...

I just love flowers...geraniums are the best (although my very fave is the daisy).
Enjoy your day!!!

Becky K. said...

I think our weather is enduring a split personality disorder right now. It can go from sunny to storming in just minutes.

Your flowers are lovely.

Brenda said...

Love spirea! Mine have long since bloomed and dropped. Sigh... Oh well, they smelled phenomenal while they lasted.

Lynn said...

Your yard is beautiful! Oklahoma is beautiful in the spring. I know. I grew up in Ada.
As a matter of fact I know people in Edmond. Les and Rachel Hardy pop into my mind. He's a dental surgeon.
Small world!

RobinfromCA said...

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

Hi Stacey!

Thanks so much for your visits and sweet messages. Your garden and your home are SO lovely! I'm glad that you are enjoying some nice weather!

So are we, but we've had that most exciting thundershower here this evening! I know it seems like everyone one else has been waiting for sunny weather in blogland!
But here a cool thunder shower is a welcome change from all the warm dryness we've had for so long!

Have a nice week! and it's so nice to chat with you!

Barbara said...

Stacey, I am behind, but what is new...we are putting in a jet ski dock thingy for my jet ski and today we are headed to town near Dallas to pick it up and then Roy has help coming tomorrow to put it in the water, etc. So we are in for a few busy days. Will catch up with you later. Have a great weekend.


Crystal said...

What a beautiful garden you have! Your flowers are all lovely. Thank you for the info on St. Fiacre, never heard of him.
I am glad you are having great weather there. Here in PA it is still cool, rainy and dreary.
Thanks for sharing!

nonnaluna said...

Got your addy from Sugar Pie forum.
St Francis is my patron saint. I love your statue of him. I also have a couple of outdoor statues of St. Francis. Your photos are just beautiful as is your site. It is so warm and cozy.

Southern Lady said...

Stacey, your yard and flowers are so pretty, and I love the wooded area behind your hydrangeas. It's so cool looking. I love the mossy ball, too.

I came across another Saint Fiacre statue in garden earlier this week which I'm going to post about next week. I had never heard of him until then, and now I found him again in your lovely garden. Thank you for sharing his interesting story.
