hello saturday

Hello Saturday, fresh off your night of light rain and cloudy sky day and hello February.  It was so nice to hear the pitter patter of rain fall Thursday night even though the amounts were not significant, it was a nice reminder that the rains will come in due time.


I took full advantage of the way a gentle soaking can loosen up the soil just enough to make weed pulling so much easier and I cleaned out my back perennial bed. 


It felt so good to get a little dirt under my nails and turn over the soil in anticipation of some new flowers going into the garden.


It always surprises me what is hiding just beneath the surface waiting to greet Spring head on.


There was actually more blooming than I thought.  Enough to gather a small bouquet for a friend this morning.


I am heading to the nursery this afternoon for some soil amendments and to see what I want to fill all this gorgeous brown dirt with.


What about you?  What are you up to today?  Whatever it is, I hope the sun shines down on your day.

xo, Patty

  3. Love your fresh and growing garden pictures, Patty! It is cold and windy and rainy here in the uk, but we are hoping tomorrow may be better to get outdoors. Wishing you a happy weekend.

  6. Well, the sun has not shown its face all day, and I'm so jealous of you I could spit. Here I sit in a cold gray state and you live in the state full of sunshine and beaches. Where did I go wrong in that fork in the road I wonder.

  7. I am so jealous! We're having winter. I'd love to weed after a little rain :)

  8. Hi Patty,

    A little rain here too in the high desert, just enough to make my flowers that are still hanging in there a little happy.

    Miss you,

    Debbie

  9. Thank you for sharing your flower photos! It's still mid-winter here and too cold for anything to grow, but Spring in coming eventually!
