Even though it may not seem like it
to most of us...
spring is just around the corner.
It won't be long until our gardens
show signs of life.
Some of you are already enjoying
spring blossoms and flowers
but for the rest of us
we'll have to wait a bit longer.
Last spring I started work on our
and this fall I planted
50 daffodil bulbs.
I hope they survived the dry winter.
I watered yesterday.
I have dreams of one day having
a garden similar to the garden
I planted in the city.
I shared this garden with you when
I first started blogging.
I thought I'd share it with you again.
We had built a new porch on our old home
in the summer of 2003 and in the fall
we put up the picket fence and arbor.
I planted the garden that fall.
This was the garden's first spring.
Above is the little garden shed we built
at the back of our old house.
To the right..out of the picture is our
screened porch on the back of the house.
Hubby eventually built a picket fence
here and I planted a little garden
and laid pavers.
We moved before we built
Flowering shrubs at the back of the old house.
We have packed that pile of rocks
and now they
reside here on the farm
along with a bunch more we dug
up from the foundation that was under
the old barn.
I framed one garden bed with some of the
larger stones but I have more
gardens to do.
Poor hubby ;)
Hubby built my 'old' wheel barrow
out of old parts and wood.
I still have it but it's seen better days.
You can see a little bit of the
window boxes hubby made for me
on the front of the house.
Eventually this front garden
was filled with
David Austin old fashioned roses
that climbed over the arbor
and the end of the porch
and many other old
Some survived the Kansas heat
Now I'm starting all over here on the farm.
I doubt my garden will be as full as
this became but that's ok.
I'll enjoy it anyway.
I hope you enjoyed this repeat tour
of our old gardens.
Have a wonderful weekend
