I'm in garden mode...

I just love being out in the garden this time of year.

* * * Feeling the warm sun. * * *

* * *Listening to the birds. * * *

* * *Seeing new plants spring to life. * * *

I picked up some new plants at a church plant sale a couple weeks ago. These are all planted and now I have a new tray full from my favorite garden store waiting to go in the ground, along with all the seedlings I've been nursing along.

I bought all these wonderful plants from a sale at the church down the road. The total was only $14.
Plants are: Hens & Chicks, Phlox, Virginia Bluebells, Lady's Mantle, Sweet Woodruff, and some Ivy in a Planter.

It's supposed to be a gorgeous weekend, so I'll have to get some shots of how the garden's coming along. Behind the hot tub, I have started a grass garden with a variety of grasses, from short to tall. I can't wait to see this grow throughout the summer! One variety of grass is called Fiber Optic and has little ball-like flowers on the ends. I'll try to post a shot of it over the weekend. I also picked up some scented herbs to put in a big pot - Pineapple Sage, Lemon Grass French Lavender and some variegated Sage...Mmmm...they all smell lovely!

I picked up ribs, shrimp, corn on the cob, and veggies for the grill, along with the usual hamburgs and our *favorite* RED hotdogs - so we'll be hanging outside most of the weekend! Great way to kick off into summer!

We went to a 50th birthday party a few weeeks ago and I took a few photos. Here's one I scrapped of my husband's friend (the birthday boy) and his wife. Aren't they a lovely couple!
