some gardening and a block

looking from the garage
 we get a few sunny days up here and everything pops into bloom.



looking from the porch



including the tree pollen which is coating everything!
It's so thick you can see it in the air.







the tulips and daffies are looking happy



Peonies
In a few years I will have a ton of peonies!

they take a few years to dig themselves into a spot and they don't like being moved, so don't give up on them if they don't bloom in the first year or two the third year is always the charm!

Vinca


and vinca blooms! who knew?



I'm surprised every year what survives winter around here.

Wysteria
I bought glads again the second year I was here thinking, the ones from last year would be mush  and I have LOTS of glads now !


coming from Chicago, like I do, if you want these you have to buy them new every year


Look who is still around! she looks cozy sunning on a  leaf

 We're going to have lots of daisies too

I put in 4 new rose bushes, along the back wall, to replace the ones that didn't over winter the first year.

I moved the veggi garden over by the fence to a bigger newer box closer to the back porch where the sun isn't occluded for half the day by tree shadow.

 
I might even try to grow corn again, in the box next to it but I would have to get on that this week or next if I want to eat it by September

I hope to have more than enough tomatoes this year due to the sunnier spot

Sandie's block



 I finished Sandie's block for the poetry and verses RR.





I chose the block called Bliss and nothing says bliss like a steaming hot bubble bath! I gave her candlelight music a rubber duckie and lots of bubbly bubbles!





doesn't she look happy?



good day from under the tree!

Well, you sure have had better planting weather than we have had here in the Midwest!! But today is glorious and the weekend should be sunny and warm, Yippee.

Love Bliss, she looks content in her bath with her kitties nearby.

You are just up the road from me and look at your garden. I was going to work in the garden but the snow put a stop to that. They say it will be 82 Saturday.... I'll believe it when I see it!
Your crazy quilting is fantastic.
