It has been a very busy past two weeks friends. I'm finding it a bit challenging to schedule everything I want (or need) to get done since starting my new PT job. Finding "creative" time is a must since I only recently discovered I actually have a creative bone in my body. For many, many years I'd convinced myself I wasn't standing in the right line when God was passing out the creativity gene. Then low and behold, once the kids were grown and on their own, and I'd gotten out of the corporate rat race I had time for me!!! Who would have thought?
Last weekend was spent doing some much needed clean up in the garden. I am so blessed to live in Florida because we can garden year round. I weeded, pruned, trimmed, transplanted, planted seeds and potted some new plants. A few more weekends of this and my garden should be worthy of visitors. I'll share some pics from last spring's garden to give you an idea of what it will look like again when all the spring cleaning work is done. As you can probably tell, my gardening style leans more to cottage gardens.
Some of my favorites for spring are old-timers like Hollyhock, Cosmos, and Foxglove. I picked up a few of these this weekend from my favorite local nursery. Now all I need is to find time to install them.
For those of you still waiting for the arrival of spring in your area, I hope this brings you a little inspiration while you wait. I'd love to know what your favorite plants or flowers are and what you have planned for your gardens this year.
Happy gardening friends!
