How nice to see such beautiful flowers.. I am so tired of this winter... I don't know if it is just me but it seems like it has been an extra long, cold,and miserable winter... I AM SO READY FOR SPRING!!!

What a nice show(-:
I finally ordered a ghost fern. I can't wait for it to arrive(-: I hope it does as well here as yours does. I will have to pamper it along probably(-:

So pretty and love your color combinations. Those pictures reminded me of some of my plants I hadn't thought about and now I'm looking even more forward to seeing them!

Just beautiful! I can't wait to see your garden this year, Joy. You really have some beautiful ferns.

Kerrie .. thank you girl ! I know I have forgotten a lot about how gorgeous my garden was .. helps to have pictures to remind me : ) and it is a shot in the arm when the winter is dragging me down ! haha

Hi Marie .. thank you ! : )

Hi Linda .. have you been hunting sources for OUR new camera girl ? .. I'm still determined to find out about : )

Hi Gail .. it does perk me up a bit to see my babies here : )

Hello Donna .. thanks for stopping by : ) Yes .. I am a contrast gardener .. garden is small so specimen plants are BIG ! LOL

Hi Cameron .. it is nice and lush until mid or early July then it gets tricky, but worth it !

Lynn .. you a re NOT alone girl .. it is one long miserable winter .. the only good thing I can say about it, is that it has to change soon !!!

Hi Debbie .. thanks girl .. but hey, wait a minute ? YOU ARE WARMER down there in non-winter land ?? LOL

Cindee ... make it your baby this season .. lots of water and it will be beautiful for you girl : )
Now mine has had its periods of dryness .. it stands straight up when it isn't happy .. it will let you know how it feels : )

Hi Catherine .. thank you ! .. isn't it funny how we can actually forget a lot of the plants we have until we see some sort of reminder ? I know I have a foggy memory ! haha

Tessa .. girl, I can't wait to SEE my garden either ! hahaha .. LONG winter blues make me more crazy than usual and I need a garden fix : )

Town Mouse said...

Oh, that is just wonderful. Love the Heuchera and the Japanese Painted Fern (dormant even in my California garden).

Hi Joy - when you've got cabin fever real bad, a slideshow's just the thing to lift the winter blues!

Not long now until Spring...

GardenJoy4Me said...

Hi Town Mouse .. thank you so much ! when we go through such a long winter .. I almost forget how gorgeous things can be in my garden : )

VP .. guess what ? Dr. Who special you guys got at Xmas is finally going to air here in March .. why oh why do they make us suffer so ?
Yup .. slide-show prescription is a help .. more snow today .. quietly screaming here !!!

This winter has been way too LONG

Patsi .. there is nothing worth watching on TV .. well, when there is a new episode of Fringe on I will watch THAT .. and we both know we are waiting for True Blood ? LOL

Kylee said...

Joy, everything is so green and lush and healthy and PERFECT! I'm so impressed! I can only hope for plants that look like that in my garden!

GardenJoy4Me said...

Kylee .. Thank you girl ! every year can be so different .. most of the last 10 years have been rather dry except the last two .. so hopefully the rain will help again. It takes a bit of work to get started but once the garden machines rolls out .. yikes ! LOL
