In my garden...



You will find I still have much to do! Thank goodness it's June...there's still time to get things done!





I finally cut back my baby daffodils, and planted some white petunias in the old washing machine...





And added some petunias to the pot of geraniums as well...








I love the contrast of these two green leafy perennials...and the fact that they grow so nicely and are really low maintenance!








I couldn't believe it this morning when I looked at my little clematis plant! It had bloomed when I wasn't looking! I am actually really surprised at this because this is my third year trying to grow clematis, and this particular plant looked quite sad last year.





Another picture just because I'm so darn proud! Proud you see, because this is growing despite that I have so much to learn about gardening. And pleased that this plant just may be content to grow here...I still need to add more bags of mulch to the front and side gardens. I am wondering now why I didn't have it brought in inside a truck. It probably would have been cheaper in the long run!
Isn't it amazing how many bags it takes to fill even the smallest garden?


SO...how has your week been going? I hope it has been a good one for you so far! The only other question is...who's ready for the weekend?!

Blessings, :)

Just me again, Jenni...

Jenni...the line is Brother Sister Design Studio...I think it is a brand owned by Hobby Lobby. :-)

And all your flowers? Gorgeous! I'm so jealous of people who have green thumbs.

Your garden looks so cute and whimsical! Yes, I'm always surprised at how many bags of mulch I need or bales of pine straw!

I love how the purple flowers look next to the color of your house, the two compliment eachother. I forget what you called the two green plants in one of the pictures toward the end of your post, but they are pretty and if they are easy to take care of thats a plus!

Talk to you soon!

Hi Jenni,
Your garden is beautiful. I especially like your flowers inside of the old washer. I remember a picture you took when it snowed on some flowers you previously planted. It is such a pretty picture! :o)
I have sure missed blogging lately and really enjoyed my time this evening reading your blog. :o) I hope that you have a good night.
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne

If I were your neighbor I would totally want to come take that red stool/ladder! I love all the antiques and flowers.
