Spring Was Here!

Oh my, it was so gorgeous here along the lakeshore the past few days.  The sun was out, the temperatures were in the high 70's to low 80's.  The leaves are popping on the trees.  The magnolia's, fruit trees, and azalea bushes are in bloom.  Even my Lily of the Valley are just about ready to pop.

I now have my furnace on!  It is 56 outside and damp.!  What the heck??

I did get my pots by our garage planted.  I like how they turned out and now I will watch them fill out!  I purchased a few different things this year.  One being French Lavendar.  After the season I will transfer it to a special place around the gardens, as it is a perenial.
There is not an empty spot on the right, actually a hosta is coming up.     
 And, last but not lease, this is my sweet Ikea pot that I wanted so desperately.  Isn't it adorable.!
Hope the weather bounces back soon!

  1. Hi Barb, I put the furnace back on today too, though it was so sweet for sleeping last night. The pots looks great, especially the eyelet Ikea pot. Love, Penny
