Garden dreaming

I'm up early this morning with my garden gloves on and ready to get started!  Well, kinda, sortof...


Oh, no,
It's raining!!!
I do so want to update my late winter/early spring backyard garden.
This is what it looks like right now. 

The Dianthus plants (pink and white flowers on the left) are putting on a beautiful show right now.
They really like to show off in early spring and again in early fall  here in my little backyard garden patch.
And the Pansies have been such a happy sight for me all winter, but their season is almost over.
They love Alabama's Fall, Winter, and early Spring seasons, but those cute little faces can't take the heat when it gets here.
I love to keep this little flower bed cheery and upbeat year around because this is what I gaze at outside my kitchen window,
Lucky me!
It even makes dishwashing a happy task.
But, it's okay that I can't work at my garden quite yet.
I can plan, plan, plan it.
And dream, dream, dream about what I want it to look like while I:
clean bathrooms
do the laundry
and cook for tomorrow's family reunion
And who knows, the sun may peek out in a little while.
And if it does, I'll head out to the plant nursery and pick out some cheery blooms to liven up my backyard.
How about you, what's the view outside your kitchen window right now?
I'd love to take a peek.  :)


  1. Your yard is lovely. I envy that you can grow flowers year round. I suppose my husband is glad to have some months where he doesn't have to mow the grass. I'm in New England and the grass is greening up and the trees are still leafless but budding. We don't really plant much till mid-May although until recently Memorial Day was the traditional time to finally plant our gardens.

  2. What a brilliant view you have. I dearly love Pansies. I have Bougainville growing out my window. I love it, too.

  3. Oh Sherry! I didn't realize you back blogging again! I haven't in over a year! So much has happened in our little world that I don't get on much anymore. I am so happy to hear about your new grand babies! How exciting!!! Congratulations!!! Twyla


I'm so happy you're leaving me a comment! ~ Sherry
