Project 1

Good Morning! Remember the other day I posted this picture as to what I was fix'in to get into. So, I started my little project. (I sometimes can not remember to take pictures a long the way but, I have confidence that you will be able to fill in some of it yourself) Besides the fact I have dirt up to my elbows. What you don't see is I cut up a tarp to put under the rubber mulch so I do not have to deal with weeds. The bag of potting soil and all the pots.
At my last house I had a really cool koi pond and it was made out of rocks like above so I pulled a few off the pile to add to this lil bed. I went and picked out some pretty lil flowers. I made some combined pots at of several of them. If you notice the flowers are in clay pots, because it is still February and I know we have at least 3 more freezes coming. When they out grow the pots I will put them in the ground for the rest of spring and summer. The daffodil's (shout out Doris Day) smell so good. I hear they will come back on their own next year. I might just have them next year with the smell they put off. Yummie. I have marigolds,hiaciths (msp), purple somethings...and in the littlest pots I have 2 different types of mint.
Having just said that. The wind was blowing yesterday around 25 to 35 mph with the wind gust . So, right after I finished my lil bed. I went and got my lil red wagon. Loaded up all my pretty flowers and put them safely in the green house...lol. I didn't even get to swing in the swing and enjoy them at all yesterday. When I bring them back out I will enjoy them. I will be getting a work out bringing them in and out.
But I will take the wind over snow like she has any day!
Braja, I am still working on the lil project for you. Time is a factor right now. I don't have a lot of it...lol I am getting ready around the ponderosa for a wedding out here in the next week :-) Plus, I am cooking for above said wedding! But, I will be working on your project in between.
Also, want to shout out to my 2 new followers! Joanie and tinkalicious (love that name)
Has Anybody seen her?

xoxo

Dar, want to come to PA and work on my gardens? I hate gardening and they are in desperate need of a lot of TLC.

Your garden is pretty. I wish we had one, but the darn raccoon keep killing anything someone plants. Darn Raccoons!!

Joanie-thankyou but I will pass. (aren't you still under snow) If the bed requires more than water, it won't last around here LOL.

Tabitha-thankyou & I know what you mean. I have bunnies around here I have to watch. I also have a family of 5 raccoons. But, I feed the deer, which feeds everybody else. The hardest is keeping the raccoons from stealing the birds peanut butter & oatmeal plate. I find it all over the yard.
