garden graveyard

I miss spring.
And summer.
Yesterday we got a February teaser: sixty-five degrees and sunshine.
It made me want to unearth my flower beds, getting rid of the dead, to make room for beautiful new buds!
However, since I know March is sure to bring more snow...
I will enjoy my "garden graveyard" for a another long month...

{you'll be a knockout someday, honey}

 {a future hot pink cluster on my crepe myrtle}

{sweet, sweet jane magnolia bud}

{a bed of dead, wet, beautiful leaves to keep the garden warm}

{hang on droopy, droopy hang on}

{fuzzy bud, you make me feel all fuzzy inside}

{i see you, my lovely pup}

Clearly I was bored today. 
 But it was a really good kind of bored.
The day started with: with fresh-baked donuts, coffee, {yes, I can have one cup a day -- "my vagina gets a vote!" for all you Grey's fans out there -- loved that episode for obvious reasons!} and lounging on the couch with Hubby watching White Men Can't Jump.

Now time to get to work painting the currently being re-vamped master bath...
more on that to come!

Anything pretty happening in your garden graveyard?



  1. Don't fret, spring is right around the corner. Look at that beautiful dog. Can't wait to see the finished bathroom.

  2. No, nothing but dog poo and a soggy mess. :(

    Spring cannot come soon enough!!

    I absolutely love getting my hands dirty and playing in the yard. I don't really know much about gardening, but I keep trying and so far its working out pretty good. I'm looking forward to finishing the edging around the beds by the house this paver at at time. :)


I adore comments. So leave one. Or two. Or as many as you want.
