This is a shady spot in my garden.

Hanging Plant Boxes
First seedlings of marigolds and carnations getting ready to be hardened off outside
Dora checking her yard for "critters". She has to have space so the seedlings have to be moved.

This lovely Iris opened up 3-2017 and it is the earliest my Iris have ever bloomed
Spring Iris blooming very early 4-1-17 and my make believe wild bird and chicken friends
Here are some pictures of the back yard garden after Chewy and I spent a week cleaning the planting beds and getting ready for spring planting. Hopefully they look a little different from the winter 2016 picture on this page.
Chewy and I finally finished our spring planting bed cleaning
This is my holding bed for new plantings that need to harden off. The oxalis makes a great soft protective bed. I have 3 trays of creeping sedum transplants that will go into hanging box gardens along with purchased pots of sedums and thyme.
Chewy is showing a refurbished garden spot that will be receiving those new pots of thyme. This area justs needs a garden bench for some quiet time and a fairy house.
Wild Birds feeding from homemade Bird feeders made from vintage chairs winter 2016.
Chewy approves of the Zero G garden hose. The very narrow lightweight hose is in the background
