I don't know what I will do if the neighbors ever take this wonderful pine tree down .. it is a perfect front ? drop, contrast for the sun rising.
We actually had a fair layer of frost on the roof this morning .. it is a late hit at this time of year .
I will have to work on my green walls this year .. the privacy is a must. BUT .. I just had to take this picture to show that warm morning glow on the wood of the new deck.
Our French Lilac is loaded with buds .. talk about promise from this gorgeous little tree : )
"Jack's bed looks a bit bare .. but some a few more weeks it will be loaded with lots of foliage and the promise of beautiful flowers.
A tiny gem smiled at me while I took its picture .. how sweet is that ?
This is the "lots of work" spot .. after the pressure wash .. the rain barrel has to be set up again .. then I have to coax the Engelmann Ivy into forgiving the abuse it suffered by the deck crew .. and perhaps some nice shrubs to keep it company and cheer it up ? Heaven knows I can't wait for the shed /play house to finally be here as well .. garden tool storage yippeeeeee !
I think that is what keeps us driven as gardeners .. we know there is such potential and promise to our hard work .. our thoughts on how to create an even better green space full of life and colour .. I have to say this is especially true for us northern gardeners .. all of us in the north of the world that experience such long dismal winters .. waiting and planning constantly ?
P.S. I try to soak in all of this happy Spring post ... and try to ignore that blasted basketball bouncing off the pavement in the neighborhood .. can't they put a muffler or shocks on that blooming THING !!!??? haha
