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!

What's Happening This Week in My Garden

Linking up this week with Bloomin Tuesday and Tuesday Garden Party

First I have to tell you - today June 15th is my Birthday I love my b-day - what a wonderful day to hear from family and friends and get to do anything I want and I the day!
This Week's Projects
Geting another section of our fence done ! WOO HOO My sweetie peeking through.

Working on the edges of the flower beds - it cleans them up so much when the grass is cut away from them. You can see the part done and not done in the picture.

When I do these projects I work on them 6 feet at a time and then come back where I finished up the day before - sometimes I get 6 feet done, sometimes more. But the goal is always at least 6 feet.


Today at my house is it mostly yellow and purple.
My Iris are still beautiful.

The Iris are blooming all over my front and back yard. I still have more colors coming but they all bloom at different times here. More Yellow
A little closer up
Pink is starting to bloom! I am hoping to share pink next week.
My Vegetable Garden This Week - The peas and beans

You can see the baby birds, their little beaks are poking up waiting to be fed - I think they are ready to fly away. It has been so much fun to watch them through our window.

They haven't liked it when we use our picnic table.


This week I am thankful for my birthday!

This week plans -

finishing mulching the garden,

finish the edging on my flower beds,

weed again after all the rain,

clean out my garden shed.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you have a great week!

I LOVE all your pictures. Everything looks so pretty and colorful. Great goal of 6 feet at a time whenever you are working. Also, great picture of the nest and mama bird.

Enjoy your birthday.♥

Thanks for the reminders on your to-do-list. I need to do the same - weed and edge the beds. It is so hot here though. Veggie garden is coming nicely. I like the yard art you have. Yellows and purples and blues are my colors this year so it seems. Becca

Happy Birthday!

I have to ask...

The yellow flowers, the bush, right above your pink... The one you have a close up of... What is that?

It looks just like a plant I got at a plant swap this spring that I have not yet been able to identify.

Hope you have a wonderful birthday! Your garden is looking great, so many vivid colors.

Jean said...

Yellow and purple are such a great combination. I still need to edge some of my gardens, too. Happy Birthday! Jean
