Here's to a Lovely Garden

Doesn't look like much now, but it's going to explode this summer!

I'm sitting here, listening to the rain, drinking my coffee and wondering why I'm not sore.

Yesterday was a beautiful day and we made a trip to Portland Nursery. I bought an Euphorbia plant, some native Oregon bushes (they attract humming birds!), thyme, and oregano. Nate really wanted some more strawberries, so we got some of those too.

I dug up all the grass along the fence. That is some hard work right there. My back was aching and my hands were all swollen by the time I was done, but it was a good 'wow look what I got done' feeling.

It doesn't look like much right now, but I'm really hoping that it will fill up and out as soon as we get some nice warm weather.

I thought the Dahlia's I planted last year were totally dead, but I noticed some little red leaves starting to poke out of the ground! I love, love, love Dahlias.

There is still so much more work that needs to be done, but I'm so happy with what I was able to get done yesterday.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
