Snippets of My Backyard Garden


I can't remember where I found this old ladder but knew at the time I might need it for my garden.

My pretend sunflower garden.










My favorite rose.

Everything is blooming early this year because of the mild spring we've had. The weather has been perfect for gardening.  Hopefully, the summer won't be as hot as last year. I lost a lot of flowers to the heat.

How does your garden grow?

Your garden is so neat, tidy and pretty. I imagine that it gives you hours of enjoyment through the summer and beyond. Things are just starting to wake up around our neck of the woods. xo

That is a great use for an old ladder. Your gardens look lovely! I enjoyed the tour, thank you very much.

We are in the midst of cleanup, raking up the debris as the snow melts. I enjoy Spring cleanup. It's a nice fresh start.

Wow! It's beautiful, Christine! I wish I had time to have a backyard like that. I haven't planted one thing this spring, and my chances are running out!

Right now our garden isn't growing! It's pretty cold again, but hopefully soon hubby and I will be out working! Enjoy! Your garden looks really pretty. I love the bicycle!

Oh Miss C...everything is just gorgeous! I hope we continue to have MILD weather and don't burn up like we did last year. That was terrible...wasn't it?

Anyway...hope my lawn and garden looks as beautiful as your place does someday!
