IN THE GARDEN
Well I did it. I couldn't resist temptation any longer. I planted the first flowers of the season! Granted, they're only pansies, which prefer cooler temps anyway, but c'mon, it's only March!
The Bleeding Hearts are blooming a full month ahead of schedule. At this rate, there will be nothing left to bloom by August!
The Redbud is spectacular this year.
A little corner of the back garden. which still needs alot of work. The birds don't seem to care though, because they really love that birdbath. It's very private and secluded!
I wish the daffodils lasted longer. I'm going to plant lots more in the Fall!
I got out part of my vintage garden tool collection and sprayed a clear matte finish on them, hoping that it will stop the paint from chipping off of the clippers, and stop everything from getting any rustier. At an estate sale today, I found the thing that I've been looking for, for the past 20 years, to put them all in. I'll save that for My Weekend Finds!
During these past couple of weeks of unseasonably warm weather, I've found that if I just sit quietly at the patio table on the back porch, I can get pretty decent shots of all the wildlife that flies, runs or crawls by. Do you like my new roof ornament?
Hello Mr. Robin! You sing so pretty just as it's starting to get dark!
Mr. Old Glory once said that this time of the year is "my time", and I think he's right. I am in my glory, and I almost feel like I'm blooming too. Does that sound crazy? I think gardeners know exactly what I mean! So, what's blooming in your garden?
