Hello there; sweet blog friends… I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Spring like day,,,, at least I hope it is where you are…. Here I am enjoying some lovely warm sunny weather…. I have been out taking some photos to share with you,,, my bulbs are really popping up.. and my weeping pea tree is in full bud…. I hope we won’t get a nasty frost and kill most of them off..  

  Where I work has laid some of us off the next week,,, which I am not happy about,, but then on the other hand I can really get in some much needed spring cleaning in my home,, and yard…. just wish I was getting a pay check for it….. oh well….  any way on with my photos….

My Lavender is doing so wonderful,,there are two plants here,, that seem to have grown together a bit,,, I am going to dig them up and move them to the side yard as well,,, I think they will be beautiful there,, I have four plants,, they put out such a show,, and then I dry the buds,,, the sent is so amazing,,,, and when you brush them when walking by you can smell the lavender…love it….

I was trying to get a nice close up of one of her pretty buds but sadly it did not work out…. but it is sort of pretty…. I am not really great with a camera… but I do try……   We dear friends I hope you enjoyed my Spring Bud show….. I will be taking lots more as they pop out more,, and of the moving of some plants…. I really want to start on my Rose garden this Spring as well,, that will be a work in progress,,, which means slow going….lol  but a true labor of love,, I have always wanted one,,,,  

   So I thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit,, I do love to see your sweet comments….

So until next time; God Bless;

For some reason I never plant bulbs and every Spring I wish I had! I am pee green with envy at the lovely place your garden will be shortly! Next year. Next year I WILL PLANT BULBS!
