How does your garden grow...

So, it's time to think about new beginnings, new life, the sprouting and growing of 
all things wonderful. For the last three years or so our little corner of this wonderful 
earth has been colorless....well no, can't say colorless, there's plenty of different
shades of green but not a lot else. I drive by other homes where their gardens are bursting 
with vibrant shades of red, yellow, fuchsia and blue and feel so envious. 

So my bloggy friends the time has come to do something about all that, I have 
embarked on Project Flower Power. Yesterday we started out with some of these....

 Red Azaleas, this one fell off... yep.. off to a good start!!! 

and one of these... I don't know what this is called but it's quite beautiful!!

And a couple of geraniums... can't go wrong with these right???

We all got involved in the planting and have too say they look great.... Ash
named all the plants, I hope she remembers the names, on Sweet Potato Vine as the
fortune of being called Bob!!! love it. 

There's more work to do and wouldn't you know it....looks like rain today! 
Still, it was awesome to get up this morning and look out and see some actual
honest to goodness beauty in the back yard!!! 

I'm feeling very pleased right now!!!!

I'm an avid gardener, and I don't think there's anything more uplifting than a garden full of color flowers, particularly when I'M the one who toiled and sweated and planted them there!! It's a terrific feeling of accomplishment, isn't it?

Here's to new beginnings!! Happy Spring!!

Your flowers are pretty. My wife planted yellow daffodils and they are coming up all over the place here.

This weekend is when I can get some pretty planting done. I always buy the ones that come back every year - perennials? Or is it annuals? Are they annuals because they come back annually or because you have to buy them every year? As you can see I'm not much of a gardener - but I love bright colors to hide the ugly drabness of winter turning into spring. Your pretty flowers have inspired me!
