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!

My Entry Garden

Be sure and check out the other "Fertilizer Friday" gardens - they are all so fun to see! Thanks Tootsie for hosting this for us!http://www.tootsietime.com/
Also linking to Favorite Things Friday at http://thehillsarelivin.blogspot.com/ and Show and Tell Friday ww.romantichome.blogspot.com/ lots of fun and creative projects

Entry area about 3 weeks ago after I first cleaned it out.

Entry area today - 3 weeks of growing - amazing!

I wanted to show what the plants in our Entry area are doing, they are starting to pop!

This area is a shade oriental garden.
My wish is that everyone who comes through this area to our front door feels peace, joy and love and when theyleave they leave feeling refreshed and loved.

***Top left is is my lime bleeding heart, it is always about a week behind the other bleeding heart.

***The top right is my bleeding heart that was my grandmother's who died about 15 years ago.
***The lower right is our tree starting to bud out. These leaves get so big and thick that in a rainstorm you can stand under them and not get wet.
***The lower right corner is a picture of the pansies I just bought for one of the door pots.

This is the wreath on our front door, I made it a couple of weeks ago - it add's so much zing to the entry area! I am really excited this next week to get my pots all potted up and really showcase this wreath and the entire entry area. Instructions on how to make it are on my personal blog ----->http://bucketideas.blogspot.com/2010/04/project-19-81-to-go.html
I found these adorable pictures of garden angels last summer. I had a computer crash last week and lost some of the information so I don't have the links I am sorry to say. If these are your pictures please let me know so I can give you the proper credit and add your link here. I think they are totally adorable and collecting the supplies to make me some of them.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for stopping by.
