reasons to step out in to your garden every day

atleast as spring begins to unfold. you can't pay me to stand outside for long in the summer, but right now i'm poking around at every chance i get.

otherwise i might have missed these blooms:



my bleeding heart is bleeding...er blooming! i planted it the fall we moved in...three and a half years later, here it is in all its glory. lovely, no?



foam flower



hydrangea



creeping jenny, catsmint, and spotted dead nettle



strawberries



heirloom tomatoes

speaking of what's growing this spring...



look at this little weed! can you believe it??? matilda is just blossoming before our eyes.



don't worry, i cut that corsage down to half its size. i'm experimenting and i had some creative help from this lovely lady!



we had the loveliest thunderstorm this afternoon and now it's GORGEOUS.

oh yea and that dress is part of the collection you'll see here. it's official we'll be there! we found out today we made the cut.

Congrats to you and Christina for being picked for the show!

Your garden pictures are gorgeous! I wish I had more shade in my garden to grow plants like bleeding heart. I've been taking lots of pics of my garden lately (will try to post them in the next few days). Some of my plants must have liked the cold, wet winter, because they are prettier than they've ever been. We had the same storms this morning in TN, and now everything looks so lush and green!
