one thing that stays the same...

Hello friends.  We are in a time of change once again here at home.  Nothing bad thank goodness, but change just the same.  If there is one thing that seems to stays the same here lately is that nothing stays the same.


If you're like me when the winds of change blow I find peace in what I can count on and time spent with my hands in the dirt is one of those things.


My man took me to the garden center over the weekend and treated me to a cart full of flowers.  A new pink rose bush and some pretty annuals to be exact.



We have had a cool down in the weather so I am taking advantage and getting them all in the ground before the heat returns.  I put in a few of the larkspur and sunflower seeds that I saved from last year but as you can see they did a spectacular job of reseeding themselves all on their own.


I have a couple of terracotta pots that are in need of a few new blooms and I still haven't gotten to those porch and patio pillows but I am working on it.

What about you?  Have you ventured into the garden, yet?

xo, Patty

  1. It's much too cool here, in Minnesota. I am excited to be able to go and buy plants next month!

  2. I love the name "Larkspur" and might plant some this year as they are pretty. Yes, I am venturing out into our yard, pulling weeds in the vegetable patch.

  5. Beautiful sunflowers. Yellow is one of my favorite colors. My hubby and I just purchased two big matching pots for the front of the house. I'm going to plant a dahlia in each for some height and maybe some bright red geraniums around the. the bottom. I love geraniums and they will give color all summer long. Wish we could get them to last year round but they don't do very well in our cold northwest winters.

  7. Flowers are always a good gift! Hope all is well there. A lot of change can be unsettling! I'm hoping to finally plant some seeds you sent me after we cleaned up the beds this weekend!

  8. I'm glad that is a good change. Yes, we all go through this. Some more than others. You are probably one of those. I did go to the garden center this week-end. I got a couple pots of pansies. It is storming so much here that they are inside. I wanted some flowers for when we have showings. The gardens outside look so bad.

  10. No flower planting for us until the end of May, but I'm going to start my cleanup tomorrow since it's going to finally be a pretty day. I need to be outside :-)
