Adding to the Garden


Today I had a couple of
things that I needed to plant.
While out doing that I
noticed that I have an
iris about to bloom.

I had some spearmint I picked
up when I was at Kroger
that needed to go in the ground...
in this case it went in a pot.

I also picked up the spoon
stamped MINT at the
Creative Artist Store
in my area.
Went by there today to
pick up my stuff since they
are closing.


Also got this one for my
lavender.


I had this cute little blue bird
that I had put up in the shed.


I went digging in the shed...
I had to put out my gnome!



Had some wandering jute that
broke off one of moms plants
last yr. It has been routing in
my kitchen all this time.


Can you see the carpenter bee. They
come this time every year
for about 20 years.
Hard to catch them in flight.
Spiderwort about to bloom.

One of my windchimes

Forgot I had this in the shed. It
is in the garden now.
And if I keep adding to
the garden along side the
shed I will need to make it
bigger!



Another chime I have had for
years.

Every garden needs a lizard!
Even if it is a plastic one.


Totally love my frog!

I picked up this metal bowl/dish on
a stand and forgot about it
also. Found it in the shed stacked
with all this other stuff.


Love hummingbirds


Thinking this ground cover is
not going to grow up my
baby bed spring treills
but I have a plant I have to
plant that will be amazing.


Finishing up pics on the deck!


Thanks for stopping in,

Oh, you make me want to get moving in the direction of spring! Unfortunately, I found today while raking leaves the grasshoppers are back; they little now but it won't be long until they're huge. They love to chew on the leaves of plants including roses. I learned on go*gle to sprinkle flour around the yard. Not real inclined to believe that, but will definitely give it a shot. It seems they like to visit us about every other year. :(

Take care, Pam.
God bless.

Nice garden - at my altitude it's hard to get things to grow, and I'm not good at it anyway.

Oh, I like all your garden goodies, especially that hummingbird. It is a special bird for me too, Pam. That frog and blue bird are so cute. I can hear your wind chimes from here, love those.

You have a lovely garden with lots of great ideas. I really like the brightly painted birdhouse. And the lizard... as long as it's a plastic lizard and not a live one!
