Windy tuesday!

Today was too windy to work in the garden, so I guess we will just share some pictures and wish we could be outside working the soil! Enjoy!

Finally some good soaking rain!

Happy Monday! Yesterday I transplanted 12 dwarf cedars, 16 stella doro day lilies, 12 dwarf astillbe and countless ajuga all donated with love by my mother. As I dug in the dirt, my daughter Christina was busy snapping pictures, so here are a few to share with you on this rainy Monday! Enjoy!

Saturday in the garden!

It's a beautiful warm day and so we will be doing some gardening. My mother is giving me some miniature cedar bushes and I am planting them in the front border. So, while I am out doing that, please enjoy these pictures of spring!
