In between thunderstorms this past week I have been in the garden every available minute I can.
I just love this time of year.
Finally, after so many months of winter waiting and week after week of snow filled spring days I'm finally able to dig out my shovel and play in the dirt!
I've been having a great time pulling weeds, moving plants and adding new ones.
This time of year always seems to get me so excited as plants pop up out of the ground for a little springtime sunlight and the promise of pretty flowers to come is just so energizing for me. I crave more, and more, and more flowers!!
Talking of new plants, I picked up three new Hydrangea's for the front yard. I love these plants so much I'm seriously considering just a garden filled with them.
I've made at least three trips to different garden centers around my home. Each time I come home with a trunk full of new plants and I tell myself, "OK, that should be good for the year"
But then . . . I just happen make a quick stop into yet another garden center "just to look".
Plants just jump into my trunk!
I can't help it - - I can't stop!!!!
I think I have a problem - - but at least it's a pretty problem. LOL.
This was yesterday's trunk full.
I went to Lowe's and was very happy with what I found.
I brought home two Forever & Ever Hydrangea's
And two Limelight Hydrangea's
Also one shrub rose came home with me. This one is called "Little Mischief"
I also picked up a handful of potting plants that I didn't take pictures of.
On the way home from Lowe's I stopped off at my favorite garden center to pick up a few flowers that I "needed" See what I mean - - I have a problem.
Two new pink Phlox and a Coreopsis, you can't have a garden without these two plants right?
Now as most of my work has been centered on the front yard and the veggie garden I'm ashamed to admit my backyard garden has been neglected terribly.
Yep, It's bad . . .
there's plants in there somewhere . . .
I'm sure of it.
Looks like my weekend is going to be filled with a whole lot of weed pulling!!!!
If you just so happen to find yourself with some time on your hands this weekend and your wanting to play in a garden, I'll give you the going rate for weed picking around here,
twenty-five cents a bucket . . .
Now that's a deal!!
