Spring in our Garden

We are still working on our garden and have a LONG way to go before it looks the way we want. March the 25th will be our one year anniversary in our new home. Here is a look at some small improvements we have made and what is going on in the garden:

Pots of Annuals for color

New growth on the Rising Sun Redbud

Pot full of Impatiens that overwintered

First Love Dianthus

Spanish Lavender


  1. Congratulations on your first year in your new home.

    The Spanish Lavender is a great addition. Your approach of adding color in containers until you can get to the garden is a good one. I have done that for three years here too.

  2. Thank you Shirley. We have so much more to do. I just needed to add some color to break up all the green, over grown shrubs we have. I'm curious how the Spanish Lavender will perform in the summer. The Bees LOVE it:)

  3. Can't go wrong with a row of lavender! And isn't it funny what survived the winter? I had some Christmas Cactus survive outside. What??

    1. I'm loving the lavender. Pretty good to have a Christmas Cactus survive the winter. It was so mild. Complete opposite of last winter. Thanks for stopping by:)

  4. Wow, that’s beautiful! You have a gorgeous set of flowers. I can’t wait to see your garden surrounded with all those lovely flowers and plants. Just a little reminder: you don’t have to rush everything. It’s better to take close note of every detail of the gardening process to avoid making mistakes along the way.

  5. Who took those photos? The pictures look so alive, and very vibrant indeed! You have to put in a lot of effort, patience, determination, and budget to achieve your ideal garden. But I think, you really have a passion for flowers, and it is more than enough to achieve your desired goal. Keep it up!
