It was a fine day Sunday.
I was able to get out into the garden
and knock out some things on my
"to do list"

I just love to walk the garden
and see what has sprung up.
My yellow primrose, Cheddar Pinks and Stonecrop
are coming back to life.

When the weather gets a bit nicer the outdoor furniture will
need a fresh coat of paint.

Found two big blue bottles
and put one to good use holding
this trellis together.

This side bed is my shade garden.
Today I divided and transplanted
some Hostas into it. Hope they make it.

I also divided and transplanted some
"Stella D'Oro" daylilys

Creeping Jenny coming along nicely.

Clematis climbing its way to the top.

The tulips are mostly up at this point.
They will be gone by Easter, since it is coming so late
this year.

My Crabapple tree is just starting to bloom this week.
Most of the ones I've seen in the neighborhood are already
at their peak.

Many of my daffodils are already done
except for a few late bloomers.

Lastly, let me show you my handmade
garden sign I just put it out.
I made it myself,
you can read about it here.
I'm linking up with a new friend,

  6. Beautiful gardens. I love the sign you made. I have a sign I bought with a quote something like 'I love all my fine feathered friends' and put it next to my concrete statue of a cat washing itself. I know the quote didn't have that in mind, but they look kind of funny together :)

  7. Looks like you had an enjoyable Sunday in the garden. It's all looking terrific. Your Daffodils, Crab Apple and Tulips are gorgeous.

  8. I just love this post! It will be a while before my crapapple tree blooms.

  9. I can't wait until all the snow is gone, we have some buds on the trees and I can monkey around outside making trellis's with blue bottle tops!
