Friday Garden

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you've had a good week .We've had some lovely weather, but the pollen has been killer - it was 8000+ yesterday and 7000+ today.  We had some rain last night, but it didn't do much to reduce the count. 
 My tulips have been very pretty. Here is a picture of the whole garden, about a week ago.
 I was very disappointed that the grass we planted last year didn't survive the winter. I hate seeing all that dirt. We also need to paint our little shed.  We have a long list of things to do!
The picture below shows how the garden looks today.  The tulips are almost all past. I planted a few marigolds and impatience.  I'm worried about the impatience because all of mine got a disease last year and died.  But I'm going to try them again.  I'll put some in pots so I can still have them if the in-ground ones don't survive.
I hope I can get out there tomorrow and do a little more planting.  I'm begging for some grass, too:)   I have plans in my head for the little shed, but I don't know if I can get it to "real life".  I'm always impressed with people who can make happen just what they want!  BTW, please don't look at that empty urn!!! I don't know why I do this every year.  It sits there empty.  Crazy.  I'm going tomorrow to get some plants. I had a plan, but I can't find the plants, now I'll have to think of something else.
I hope you're having a happy Friday, thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Lovely area. I know how you feel about the grass. I have an area that did not grow in well last year with the heat and drought. Oh well it will fill in at some point.

  2. I love the trail of tulips, so colourful and full of life. Too bad about the grass. Is it too shady in that spot? Hopefully you'll have success this year.

  3. Leslie I had to say how I love that you are in such a nice private place with woods .. I would give anything to be away from my neighbors. I think that is why I fill my garden up as much as I can to shut them out ? LOL
    You may see things as bare or needing work .. but other gardeners look at what you have and think it is beautiful !
