yes please MR , add some for May here, I was thinking of getting a collection of flowers mainly for this month, like your Hippeastrums, I don't think they will still be in bloom in June? see what I'm getting at? just Mayflowers

Everyone, add some flowers for this month

Bali....it is not large at all. Matter of fact, I have no grass in the back, just all mulch and flower beds. Hubby added on to our house years ago and included a nice size 'moon cove' deck surrounding a 24' above ground pool, not to mention a hot tub deck off of that - lol. You can step out of our bedroom and either jump in the tub or the pool - lol! So my back yard is "L" shaped, down the length of the house and across the back side of the pool.

The front is full of grass and a couple beds, but not very large either. Takes about 10 minutes with the riding mower (haha). So all together, less than an acre.
