Gardening Day

The first signs of spring have arrived—- yesterday while working in the garden squirrels scampered up fences into neighbor’s yards, birds called to others in distant trees, and spiders crawled up plants checking out the new growth. Evidence of new beginnings definitely abounds, Easter is fast approaching and blossoming flowers inspire us to feel festive!

It is refreshing to feel the warmth of the sun and the spring rain upon my face. The spectacular beauty that has surfaced over the past month overwhelms me to think creatively when gardening. With my list of chores in hand, the possibilities of what are to come encourage me to work harder.

Garden stylishly,

  1. Oh my goodness…….those “purple dead-nettle” took over your garden. How in the world did you find inspiration to begin that tedious work? Kudos to you and your work looks magnificent, btw. Happy gardening, K. Nice post!!!!!


  2. Yes, Spring is shoving Old Man Winter aside although it’s taking a tad longer here in Chicago. But progress is being made nevertheless. I like the garden pictures at Heath!
