Summer Blooms

Here’s a quick look at some of the flowers blooming around my house….

Early Summer Blooms

So no new secrete here, I love flowers. And now that it finally stopped snowing, some of my flowers are starting to bloom. I have a number of Iris that have opened over the past week as well as my peony. They all just make the world a little brighter.

Garden 2019…

So I said I wasn’t going to do a garden this year but I might have changed my mind. I love to garden but with 5 kiddos and life I have started the past two years with good intentions only to end with dried up dead plants and very healthy weeds. I had also decided…

Planting Flowers….

So no lie here, I love spring. I love the grass turning green and flowers starting to poke through the ground and bloom. Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths just make me smile. I planted a few tulips and hyacinths last year right off our front porch and I noticed a couple of the hyacinths poking through…

And Flowers….

With as much as I enjoy gardening, my true love is growing flowers. I love flower gardens and I love making trips to the flower store. When we moved I had to leave behind my rose garden and flower garden that I had carefully worked on and added too for 6 years. I have been…

Garden

So it’s been a few too many weeks since I last updated about the garden. Oops, summer does that to me. Weeks go by, we are busy and having fun and playing and I forget to blog. A lot. But alas, my garden has not forgotten to grow. Except for the broccoli that were eaten…

Garden is In!….And Possibly Drowning

So I didn’t quite make my “in by Mother’s Day” rule for getting my garden it. Because it was snowing. On May 10th. Snowing. I was suppose to run my Mom’s Day race that AM and get my garden planted that afternoon. But it was snowing. So the race got cancelled and I didn’t plant…
