After a couple of cool and rainy days the sun came out again and I discovered for the first time since at least 25 years my green thumb ! I planted !

two flower pots in front of the house with petunias

flower pots on the terrace


I also put out my little cat sculptures


this is Rosie not a sculpture


I redecorated our little graveyard and planted a rhododendron (?) because our wheeping willow is gone.


put these little sculptures out


and our little bistro table with seats in front of the kitchen door !

Now I am ready for a warm spring and an even warmer summer !

Your garden is looking ready to bloom. Enjoy the summer warmth. If you like warm you should come here. It is supposed to be Autumn but we still get temperatures in the 30's.

You ARE ready and looking very SPRING and cheerful! I left Spring in Maryland - it still believes it's Winter in Wisconsin!

I must apologize for my lack of visits here... I am trying so hard to keep up with things - but there is JUST NO WAY!

And Wisconsin tends to SUCK hours out of the day! I know these are not 24 hour days we're living! They can't be! More like 18!

Hi Gattina! You seem to have had a lot of work in your garden; it looks lovely!!

After the green, Blogtrotter entered the old town... ;)
Enjoy and have a great weekend! I’m going to be busy at the Music Fest (Bach’s legacy… ;))

Morning friend...don't you just love how the warmer weather makes us feel like we can grow anything! lol I love planting but I usually kill my potted plants...your petunias look great in those pots....I do love window boxes though and I always try to plant begonias in mine for the back porch...it is just great to be able to get outside and see something green again! I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

You're garden looks very nice! Mine is too big and too much work in perspective!
