Flowers in my Garden

I am so excited about all the flowers that are blooming in my yard.  This is all new to me, since we moved into our new house.  I'm so thankful to our previous owners for planting such beauties out there and everyday I find a new flower blooming.  And by the way, I am loving the South!!  The weather is just gorgeous right now, actually we have had months now of beautiful weather.  I am enjoying it now, because soon summer will kick in and then it's miserable with the heat and humidity, feels like a sauna come June-August.  Oh well, have to go to the pool or the beach and cool down.  Here are some pictures of my flowers in my yard.  Enjoy!
