Snow Balls

It is prime snow ball season here.



I had been searching the house and gardens for the past three days looking for it.

Thank goodness, as of this very morning it is now back in my posession.
I did what any blogger would do and wandered around Arbor House Lane gardens.

Taking lots of photos of my gardens, before I headed off to baseball of course.

My Snow ball bushes are just beautiful this year.
Many of the bushes are just packed with fluffy white snowballs.

Almost all of the winding paths will have a snow ball bush.

This Viburnum is also loaded white white flowers.
I think this is the prettiest I have seen it.

The flowers remind me of a lace cap Hydrangea.

As you can see Mr. Mittens is still letting himself out daily and enjoying it very much.

This is the arbor that leads to our front door.
Both sides are covered in wild white roses, an autumn clematis and pink fairy roses.
In the next couple of weeks it should be an amazing site.

Snow on the mountain to go with my snowballs.

This little snow ball bush is a transplant from one of the larger bushes.
I let them under root for a couple of years and then transplant them. 

This is the flower bed you see first when you drive in the driveway. 
I just clean out overgrown ivy and I am ready to put in a few annuals and then mulch.

Sooooo fluffy!

A garden angel.

Snow ball bushes on the side of the house.

More in the back.

Just to show you, it really is not all white at my home and gardens.
These are some after Easter discounted hydrangeas I bought at Home Depot and planted in my little wagon.

Thanks for stopping by to see some of my gardens.
Now git and enjoy Spring before I throw a snow ball at you!

I am sharing my gardens with Tracie from Fishtail Cottage for Cottage Garden Party.
Stop by and visit the beautiful gardens.


  1. Oh my...your snowball bushes are so BEAUTIFUL!!! I planted two about two years ago and they are not growing very much...think I might try moving them. Thanks for sharing yours with all of us.


  2. DAMN WOMAN, YOU KNOW I'M HERE FRONT AND CENTRE WHENEVER YOU DO A GARDEN POST!!! Oh wait...that sounds I don't want to read your other posts.

    Okay, you know what I mean. Alaina, do you have any problems with pests with your snowball bushes? I may have asked you this before. My sister said she had a bush and it was covered with little bugs all the time.

  3. I also want to grow some snowballs in my backyard but unfortunately they got withered at all.
