By Popular Demand... Garden Photos!

Thank you, dear bloggers, for requests to see photos of my garden. It's early, so there will be many more interesting things. But here are what has been happening this spring.

My Rebuilt Little Retaining Wall

I look forward to planting annuals next week. What's blooming, plant or otherwise, in your neck of the woods? Happy gardening!

  1. I like the kitty memorial. I should make one here, for all those passed on.

    1. Your efforts for those cats in need cannot be praised enough. Bless you! I found this Pennsylvania stone monument through http://www.4everinmyheart.com/ and they were super helpful and compassionate during the ordering process. Best wishes, my dear.

  2. How lovely to participate while you enjoy your garden growing and blooming. I'm looking forward to additional photos.

    In about two weeks, I'll be in MD living in a house that has a garden. Though I enjoy living in an apt with staff that does everything, though Houston is warm and warmth is delicious, a garden in an area with seasons is exquisitely lovely.

  3. Our old friend Carlsberg is in our garden beneath a big tile. I love your memorials. Gone but never forgotten.

    1. Amen, my dear. Loss is difficult, but I feel blessed to have known my Luna and I'm sure you feel the same about Carlsberg. Nice kitty name, by the way.

    1. You're very kind. I still miss that little cat. She was a sweetie whom I hope to never forget. The wall is definitely not perfect but it should hold for a few years of winter freezes/thaws before needing rebuilt again. I was amazed at my strength and ability to dig up and stack those bricks in just two stints of under an hour! It goes to show how our minds make tasks seem much bigger than they may be. I'm sure that's a lesson I'll need taught again sometime.
