I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

I Am Out Of Yard Shape!

We are under a winter storm watch, so it is really cold out today. we are supposed to have snow by tonight, with promises of the sun by Friday! That is why I spent yesterday in the cutting garden, clipping and cleaning and transplanting. I am pretty sore today and I love it!

I also widened my little planting area from 4 inches to 12 inches around the picket fence in the play yard and planted sweet peas. It has bricks etween it and the grass so it will be a cinch to mow around.

This is the area from last summer.

This is close up:

Next week I should have flowers I can share from this year! My daffodils and tulips are ready to pop.

Thanks to Jean at for hosting Blooming Tuesday. I love this day to look at everyone's gardens and how they are growing. Check out this link to see other participants http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/

Wow, what a beautiful patio area on your header picture! I love the smell of sweet peas. They are such a pretty flower.

Oh honestly, by mid April we shouldn't have any 'winter storm watches', should we? Crazy, but often true -- in Idaho and Colorado! ;o)

Your sweet peas from last summer are gorgeous! I wish I had a sunny spot like that to plant some. Can't wait to see your daffodils and tulips!

Oh how pretty, also love the playhouse. Snow showers! I can't believe your expecting snow, just hope the weather man is wrong. Hugs, Rosemarie

What a wonderful play area! So sorry to hear about your storm watch. I won't be surprised if we get more before we're thru. Love the sweet peas on the fence! Jean

That's such a pretty, pleasant area you show in your last year's photo. Are those sweet peas?

Sweet peas are so pretty. Perhaps you won't get the snow. Being from Minnesota, I understand how anxious you are for spring to come and stay.

The only thing I can think of that might be more fab then visting all of the gardens on tuesday is attending the 'ugly bug ball!'

I giggled the entire stroll through your garden.
