Enjoying the Sunshine

Friday, May 24, 2013

Finally, the weather is beautiful and sunshiny so that I can spend more time outside. I have been out today working in my new flower garden. We are getting ready to build a new house, so I have been moving some of my perennials from the old house to the new location. Talk about exercise!!! I have been digging deeeeep holes for my roses, carrying water from the pond (since we don't have the water ready yet), and digging and pulling weeds. Next I will be getting mulch to protect my flowers. I went to may aunt's yesterday and she divided several of her award winning iris with me. A lot of my flowers have been passed down from my mom and her sisters, so that makes them even more special to me. I really enjoy working in the yard and garden. It is really a workout, but is so much fun.

    Awww what a lovely idea of passing the flowers on generation to generation yes they hold even more of a special meaning, I love that idea... I love my backyard garden, all this rain is really beating my petunia's and my clementis .
I bet that 's a lot of work taking the flowers with you to the new house, but it will be so worth it in the end, I love that your bringing your garden with you so that you'll be able to enjoy it.
I wish you luck with your new home and a beautiful garden season! emoticon
