La Di Da...

I went back to Lowes this afternoon and spent about an hour out in the wind drooling over the gorgeous Spring plants.

Ranunculus are my FAVORITE and I LOVED these colors! 
(next to tulips...)


This is my front planter...under my bedroom window.  This is a twisted view, but I love it!  It has all of the important bits:
tulips, sedum, violets, and a few ranunculus that I planted last year.


I  some snapdragons and pansies to fill in around the tulips in the front. 
They remind me of Alice in Wonderland! :)


I've never seen this plant before.  The tag said it's a 'Fragrant Wallflower'.
I loved the bright yellow and purple mix, but the best part is that it was COVERED in...
HONEY BEES!!


Tasty anaheim peppers...
(I also put the fabulous wall-o-waters around two different types of tomatoes.)


PARSNIPS!!!  I plated these last Summer...but they are better if you let them winter over...
I'm going to fill the gaps in with beets.


It was so windy that I had to pull my hair back in a clip AND a braid...
Even then, the wind pulled it out.
(I'm also noticing that it's BEYOND time to color my hair.  My black has faded to red and brown...and the blond roots are scary!)


I found a peat pot full of red and white tulips.  I put them in my tulip house for inside...
I'll get the table cleaned off soon...promise...


I put these under my Japanese Maple tree in the front yard...mostly for the quail.
Our neighbor planted strawberries in the strip of dirt next to our fence and a few starts have made their way into this patch.  I thought they might like some company. :)



This is under our picture window.  There are close to 100 tulips in this planter, but it still needed some color.  I added some pansies and snapdragons here, too.



I'm tingling in anticipation...

You're adorable. Is there anything you can't or don't do?! You should teach me about gardening. My kind is the one where everything is in a pot...on your balcony!

I see that you prepared your garden with a lot of love for spring and summer. I hope that the flowers will grow soon in various colors.
