Summer in April!?


We have had gorgeous weather the past 3 days. I hope wherever you are that you are enjoying spring!
We bought our first electric air pump for the pool (s). Such a luxury!
My garden was full of rocks! And big stumps. What a mess! That's me sifting rocks...




And more rocks....









My "plan" is the put the rocks on the edge as a wall to keep the dirt in my garden. Anybody need some rocks?






I transplanted some potted plants to the garden. The purple ones (name escapes me) came in a hanging pot and the roots were so choked that I split up the 3 plants. The third one went back in the pot.



I'm going to plant a wildflower mix in the rest of the dirt today. I am no green thumb. I have no idea what I am doing. I welcome all advice on keeping these poor plants alive : )

Rock on! Teehee... literally, I guess! I totally know where you're coming from! I just had my hubby swap some plants around and boy it was rocky... I wish our rocks were your size, though! They were the size of my hubby's fist if not bigger! I need to get some more flowers... for my hanging baskets and for my yard. I just bought a $1 packet of wild flowers, too! I'm going to put them along the chain link fence that is separating the neighbor's yard. Great minds think alike! Heh. I'm so not a green thumb either... heck... I'm not even sure these flowers will grow, LOL... will they have time? Or will it be next year that I see some flowers? Who knows... but I'll have fun digging and spreading seeds. It's pretty therapeutic these days!

Amanda, Good luck with your rock problem! I certainly worked the abs and burned some calories sifting those rocks. Did you get your $1 wildflower seed packet at Target like I did? Love that $1 section! Wish I had picked up one of the kneeling pads when I saw it there! It'll be exciting to see if they grow. My flowers didn't grow last year : ( But this is a new place with different soil so I'm trying to be positive! I love the physical work and making things pretty and organized ; ) Can't stand a mess, anywhere!! God bless : )
