My Gardening Adventures

Last weekend, I had gotten an opportunity to finally finish my front yard "garden" and I am really happy about it. In fall we had removed some bushes in front of our house, which I did not like for a while and some had just plain were not doing well. So we removed them but did not plant anything there yet.

As it turned out, the long weekend was the perfect time to plant new flowers and bushes. The weather was perfect, it was sunny and in the evening we got heavy showers, and following couple days it had been hot during the day and rained at night. Perfect, perfect timing for the plants. What was not the smartest thing for me to do was to work without gloves. By using tools without gloves I worked up a blister in palm of my hand and ripped my skin open; and that has been hurting me for a few days now (not good for knitting :)). The planting also took much longer than I thought, so I burnt in the midday sun. But hey, it was worth it. Look at it.

What are your gardening adventures?

And here is my gardening pride in pots on my deck. I have planted and replanted some flowers about a month ago, and now I get to enjoy all the colorful blooms. Now I love spending time here in the mornings and evenings.

All your flowers/landscaping look beautiful! We have been doing a little landscaping, but with desert plants.. (Not as pretty, in my opinion).
