This past weekend was all about cleaning up all the dead plants left over from the Winter. I spent several hours outside each day pulling things out, cutting them back and planting new plants.
This mess is the area in question. Boy so many plants were dead and needed to be pulled out or replanted. It took hours to cut back. But I was so, so happy when it was all cleared out. Even with nothing planted it looked better than the overgrown dead plants.
Sunday saw me reorganizing, and planting some nice new flowers. I try to keep myself within a budget for new plants. For a little amount of money you can make a big difference.
Looking out from my family room/kitchen I can now see dots of color that will hopefully grow into a beautiful garden.
Well that is if the deer don't have appetizers at my house. Not sure this plant will make it after the evening feast.
My garden boxes are really doing great. Look at how everything has grown. I have been feasting on the lettuce, my goodness it is so good. I never actually thought lettuce had so much flavor.
My tomatoes have flowers!
And I might actually have two or three strawberries. I planted these late in the season, next year I will plan better.
This Superhero spent a lot of time outside with his walker and his bike this past weekend. He had the best time. We don't need an amusement park, we just need to go outside for a bit each day to make this little one happy.
He is making progress with his very own pair of canes. They arrived while we we in Iowa. He doesn't even really need us near him now when he walks with them. They are hard to use so he fatigues fast, but every time he uses them he is getting stronger.
He is quite something isn't he? I think he is looking older, and he is talking so much that even though he is tiny, his brain is working a mile a minute.
Thank you so, so much for your wonderfully kind words about my Berry Edged Shawl. I am quite in love with it at the moment. But suddenly it is really hot here in Florida so I am not sure I will be wearing it any time soon.
Hope Spring is showing up where you live. And remember while I know you are a bit jealous I am in the garden, you will have the last laugh come summer time and I am stuck inside with intense heat and humidity and you are all out on your back porch drinking tea and enjoying your flowers.
