A Bit of Green and Gold All Around!

Before the Rains Came Yesterday!
The Lady's Mantle Coming to Life!
Coltsfoot Starting to Bloom!
The Lavender Has Dried Out and Going to Bloom!
'Tete A Tete' Daffodils Finally Blooming in a Sea of Green!
Had a busy day in the garden yesterday.  About four hours of work and my sore tired body told me last night as I crawled into bed!  I was happy though.  When The Herbal Husband and I can work together, miracles happen!  It does take working together these days because we are both getting older and tasks take a bit longer to accomplish.

Slowly seeing the herb garden come to life.  Always nice to see plants surviving the cold weather and those that surprise.  We cut back the roses outside and we lost a lot on some of them.  May just have to buy some new ones!  Always good to have gardening retail adventures in the spring.  My herbal companion, Bonnie and I are going to the Garden Marketplace during the annual spring symposium.  Should find some very interesting plants there.  The lavender that was over watered is loaded with blooms.  We are going to transplant it into a larger container because it is extremely root bound. 

April showers bring May flowers and we will be dodging raindrops all week long.  Hope you are having a great day wherever you may be and seeing and enjoying spring or fall weather.  Talk to you later.

I can feel your excitement in your being able to get out into your gardens. Working together is always much better. Enjoy those times together. :-)

We need rain down here, hopefully we'll get some April showers.

Happy Spring ~ FlowerLady

Wish we could send some rain your way, FL! We will have to work on that. Enjoy spring! xo

I know your joy! I wish my hubs like to garden...but he hates it. He only helps when I beg . The Lavender is beautiful. I still haven't bought mine yet...the one I was looking at had bugs in the soil.. so they threw it out.

Thanks Carol! I'm glad we were able to dry it out and now it seems very happy! You'll find the right lavender soon! xo
