Garden Awakening

I am totally enjoying my garden coming back to life after a long winter's nap....in fact...I'm HOOKED! So here's to you Julia at Hooked on Houses...Fridays have never been the same since you came to town!


There is still a bit of a chill...so a quilt tossed here and there is appropriate...

English Ivy gone wild...

I am a boxwood loving gal...yes~sir~ee~bob...

A bird's eye view...

These miniature roses come back every year...never fail...

Mossy ol' pots of ivy and pears...

Vignette...iron grid, metal wheelbarrow, ivy and a laughing pig...
My garden is coming back from a loooooong slumber and I am hooked.
Thank you Julia...another great party!

Good Morning Ramona,

Your garden is just beautiful. I LOVE seeing everything waking up after the long winter sleep. The quilt is perfect to throw over your lap while sitting outside. Those miniture yellow roses are beautiful. I have a knockout rose bush that has buds ALL over it right now with a few already open. LOVE it!

I can't believe how everything is greening up so fast; didn't it just snow a few days ago??

I spent all day in the garden. It was fantastic.

Yep...it did just snow a couple of days ago...that's spring in the Pacific Northwest for ya. All of the green is a great payoff for all of the rain we get in our neck of the woods. Today...mid 70's. Love it!

I just love gardening...I find that since I am new to it...I don't do as well as I'd like to, but I am learning and am loving all of the colors and just gardening in general!
