Hello, Brenda, I truly enjoy & anticipate reading your blog every day. Your garden is lovely! I have also been gardening, mostly transplanting & the never ending weeding! Hosts are popping up, roses hsve leaves, peonies are peeking out. Have a great day.
Oh, I love peonies, but not the ants that come with them. My last rose died last year. If you did all container gardening, like me, you wouldn't have weeds!
Your garden is looking so good. I enjoy watching you each Spring get it ready!
I have ordered a canvas-topped gazebo. Nothing as nice as Texas, but under $200. I can't wait for it to get here and I'll pay Israel to put it up. I so miss some of the things I had then. But then I can do it on a smaller scale and I'll be happy.
Glad your enjoying your lovely garden! The photos you took are amazing btw!
I truly don't know what I'd do if I couldn't garden in some way. I so love it!
Hi Brenda, No planting going on here yet. We are expecting snow tonight! It has been a crazy Spring so far. I love seeing everything that is coming up in your garden.
We're nearing the April 15th mark, when people in OK generally feel safe planting. Of course anything could happen. We had zero snow this year!
It's raining like mad in my little world today....at least it's washing away some of the snow. There is grass again, so the robins have a place to find their dinner. Poor little robins! Your patio looks great - can't wait to see more as we get farther along in spring!!
You're like me, worrying over the birds. I'm sure they'll be fine. I know your chafing at the bit to get gardening going!
I haven't planted anything in my pots yet. We have had lots of wind today and a pop-up shower. It's warm one day and cold the next. I'm getting anxious to see something blooming on the patio, so I'm making a run to the Big Town tomorrow to see what is available at the garden centers. It's a trip I need to make to exchange some frames. I bought the wrong size, so the project I had hoped to get done today has been put on hold. I'm going to go now and snoop on some of your previous posts looking for a wall display I remember seeing. Take care and hope your ankle is soon better. This weather has mine hurting and too much walking also.
My ankle was better yesterday. Guess it's the boot they put me in that's slightly different from the other one. Just relieved to not have constant pain! I feel yours!
Your flowers/patio looks so pretty. I especially like your white clematis. My white one didn't survive the winter-only my purple ones did.( I'm so glad Abi is alright.)
Thanks for thinking of my little Abi. I'd like to have a purple one myself.
Love your patio. It is so inviting.
I hope to have it even more inviting soon with some things I have planned.
Your patio plants are looking so pretty. I have only tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths blooming right now. My herbs survived the winter well. We have had such bad strong winds every day here. I am miserable when I try to do anything outside, the pollen laden winds make my eyes water and my nose run the whole time when I am outside. I haven't been able to sow any zinnia seeds because of the wind. I think next week maybe the winds will have slowed down. Then I will enjoy being outside more.
Same here. Stuff blowing every which way and I have to sweep it up constantly.
You have such a green thumb, Brenda...zinnias are always my favorites! You've reminded me to plant some this year!
Nothing prettier than a simple bouquet of multi-colored zinnias in a plain jar.
this is such a pretty space, you've gotten so much accomplished!
I love having smaller spaces. First it's easier on my ankle. Second, it's hard to figure out what to do when you have a huge expanse of space in front of you.
Your patio is a lovely oasis. Monday and Tuesday we had snow. There were 2 ft. long icicles hanging from the front door awning. It's now all washed away by the constant rain since then. The daffodils and forsythia are blooming. No leaves on the trees yet. It has not been Springlike here yet.I am living vicariously through your blog and others for garden beauty until Spring decides to finally arrive here.
We have had zero ice this year. Strange.
I love Zinnias, they are my favorite flowers! Your patio looks beautiful.Tania
Got to get my ankle calmed down and I'll be out there decorating and doing on that patio forthwith!
Love to have a peek at your "cozy little garden"! I'm in Northern CA where Spring arrives on time. Our wisteria has already peaked,the roses ,salvias and lavender going crazy.The weeds are also enjoying themselves and I can barely keep up. I can't remember if you ever mentioned reading The Language of Flowers? If not , I think you would like it,as you are such an avid reader and gardener. xo Annette
Yes, I read that on one of the readers (maybe you?) recommendation. You need to garden in containers so you can stop weeding! Hate weeding.
Enjoying your garden. Snow here in northern Illinois this morning.
I'm glad I can supply some greenery and blooms until other parts of the country have them!
I love moonflowers and morning glories...always reminds me of my Mamaw!Your garden is going to be beautiful.
Always love to see your garden Brenda. I know it will be so pretty come summer. Enjoy all the planting.Kris
Beautiful photos and beautiful garden, Brenda! I'm looking at snow falling from our window...UGH.
Do you change all the old dirt in your pots each summer to new dirt. Your flowers & patio is beautiful.
Morning Brenda! I'm itchin' to plant something too. Have pansies in the ground and some rocket snaps. I'm impatient but one day it's in the 70s, the next we have snow on the ground. Typical spring in the Rockies. Containers have a lot of advantages but I don't have as much luck with them. Any tips? I just started a new page on my blog called "My Garden Visits." I'd love to have you stop by for a visit.
Yes Spring has sprung here in the Carolina's. I think the pollen is almost gone as well and now I can start my clean up! Everything is look great in your parts Brenda.
I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time. I appreciate each and every one of you!
