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!

Project #4 - Clean Out The FLower Beds

I have two posts today - for Tootsie Time post scroll down to next post - however just have to say if you want a great garden walk check out Tootsie TIme Garden Hop - you be glad you did!
We had an amazing wind storm on Tuesday - wind gusts over 60 mph for hours.  It tore lots of things apart - we heard about trampolines hitting houses, trees coming down in the park, toys broken from flying around, roads were closed and my wonderful table got shattered - so sad!

It has been in this little protected space for several years but we think a gust must have pulled out the umbrella and that is what hit it.  The umbrella was on the ground when we first saw the damage.

Project #4 - I haven't felt well the past couple of summers and my yard shows it - one of my projects for the year is to REALLY clean out my flower beds, put some bark chips back into them so the ground can be covered and get healthy again.  So these pix are pix of this project.
This is the entry area - things are starting to grow!

 This is the driveway area
and to the left is the hosta bed. 
 This area I am totally redoing to make a medicinal herb bed.
 This is the cullinary herb area and the bistro garden.
 The cutting garden
 This is the side yard

 The patio after I cleaned up all the glass - sad table!

Today I am graetful for health and being able to feel good enough to clean my yard!

It got down to 12* the other night so the flowers that were in bloom that I didn't have a pix of yet - pretty much are toast - have to wait to see them next year.
These have bloomed yesterday and today.

I know it isn't gardening but I just have to share this great music video done by our son Jonathan.

It is a cover  of Tim McGraw - Highway Don't Care (Jhonny K & Jodi Lee cover) on Itunes & Spotify
It is great! 

Please listen and share, your gonna love it. Thanks to all my friends who have been invited and accepted the invitation. This is as good as any music you'll ever hear.
