so it goes

Where did the day go? I seem to have lost it, but had a wonderful time doing so. I weeded, planted and pruned in the garden all day.

I'll post some links later (I've got some good ones) but for now, here are some photos of some of the things that are blooming. Above, a redbud,


magnolia,

viburnum,

rhododendron,

double flower hellaborus,

dogwood (just starting to bloom),

and a planter full of Gus.

I've never seen a double flower hellaborus before. Beautiful! Gus is too cute! My Cairn is barking up a storm right now at the neighbor dog.

Oh hey, GLEE is back!!!

Those are so beautiful they seriously could be in a book. And I can't tell you how much I'm in love with Gus.

I'd like to know what kind of seeds you used to get that planter full of Gus. I'd love to find a puppy that cute in my garden. Your flowers are so beautiful. I think spending time there is the best way to waste the day away.

I'm so jealous. I love to garden too but don't have a yard so I stick to potted plants. I love your Gus plant!

wow! I can't believe these are plants/flowers you kept up on your own! I am impressed... still trying to figure out how to keep things alive. My orchid plant is holding on going on 36 days! yahoo

Abigail,

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog. Love these flowers and buds. Some of them I would not have associated with the cold North climates. I got a little confused on which was the dogwood and which was the dog in the wood LOL. I'll be back, and hope to see you visit again.

Oh Gus. I'll take a bouquet any day :)

I'm looking at tese flowers over and over, and simply can't decide which is my favorite. They're just all so beautiful. Makes me wish I had a green thumb.

Ok I'm a HUGE fan of the double flower hellaborus but really? I'd like to plant lots of Gus's all over my yard thank you! Does it get any more precious? Sheesh!
