A bright, sunshine-y day...


There could not have been a day more perfect that TODAY to officially declare Gardening Season "OPEN".



Ladies and Gentlemen, grab your forks, sharpen your spades, haul out your wellies and a wheelbarrow... For there is MUCH work to be done!


Oh, the weeds... THE WEEDS. We've had several long weeks of dark, dreary weather, and the incredible amount of "invasion" in the flower beds was quite astounding... In places, it was very hard to tell where the lawn left off and the garden began. However, there were a FEW "lovelies" amidst the uglies today...



The few tulips that the *&%! squirrels left me last fall are nearly finished.




Yes, you little bugger, I'm talking about YOU... Now quit that fuzzy, innocent little cute-act of yours...


There are clumps of sweet violets all over the place...



And the first of the columbines are in bloom.


The fairies are back...

And the Garden Goddess seems well pleased.

You know you've had a good day of digging, when you leave a dirt-ring around the SHOWER at the end of the day...

I can't wait for tomorrow...

Wow summer has truly arrived for you all - says she who is knee deep in autumn leaves.

I have been all day in the garden but doing 'housekeeping' kind of things like tidying, repotting etc. And I will plant some broad beans later too.

What do squirrels do to the tulips? Do they eat the bulbs?

When you are done at your house, feel free to visit mine. I love the LOOKS of a garden, but the actual work involved? Nah. Dirt and bugs just aren't my thing.

I love the comment at the end about the ring in your shower. I love to work on the garden too, especially the shower at the end:)

What lovely photos - your blog is so fresh looking too. Maybe that's what I need to do to mine?

Your garden is beautiful.
