Gardening is good for the soul. Believe me, I've been doing a lot of weeding and planting for a few weeks now. If you ever need to get away, set your mind at ease.....plant a garden. Don't you love sun dials? I'm amazed that they really do work! Have you ever read one? Amazing! I hope you enjoy the photos and have yourself a sweet little weekend.
A basket full of pansies. In Utah these will look lovely in some sun/part shade from April thru October.
Clay pots will soon spill over with pansies and alyssum. Lots of Myrtle ground cover, so much that it's hard to see the cute little cottage white flower cart underneath.
Pretty in Pink
A welcoming path...................
Hundreds of white blooms on this ground cover, great for rock gardens.
Hanging baskets add so much charm to a home. Hung from a large rustic hook on the front of the house.
Feathery grass, great for Utah landscaping.
My Mother's Day gift. I've had my eye on this frog fountain for awhile---it's just the sweetest little thing.
I love flower baskets......bet you couldn't tell? Great for attracting butterflies. Well, and unfortunately too many bees.
Bird watching and popsicle eating.
Little love bird sitting in a tree.
Our blue skies are filling with clouds. A storm is on the way for the weekend. Do you ever see shapes in the clouds? This week we found a lion and a pig.
Every porch needs one of these. Sorry, but he's taken.
Oh Summertime, you're almost here. I'm ready!
Waiting for the hummingbirds. My mom makes the best nectar, the hummingbirds did say.
1 cup sugar
4 cups boiling water
Boil water, measure 4 cups and add sugar. Stir until completely dissolved. Cool. Pour in covered pitcher and refrigerate until ready to use. Replace nectar weekly, while keeping your feeder nice and clean. Nectar will keep for one week.
Gardening is hard work but the rewards are endless. I'll be back with more pictures and some yummy summertime recipes. Today is just for the birds..........
