And no, the beds have not been put in yet. But I've got plants. I've got germinating seeds. I've got blooming bulbs. And they have to go in the ground soon. I figure, since I'm not a nag, I'd do a little passive aggressive hint dropping that stuff has to start moving soon. So, I'm turning into Crazy Garden Lady who tends a garden that isn't even really there.
Step One.......The Layout...

Here's one of the bulbs thats just taking off. The day lily flower is a deep deep purple that almost looks black.
Some Johnny Jump Ups that are germinating.

In the last episode of "The Frost Killed the Lilac Tree", the old girl wasn't looking too well.
And!!!!!! she's blooming!!
Not that you can really call two teeeeeny little flowers on a clump blooming. Wait, this is my blog so I will call it blooming.
Meanwhile, the yard is still a dirt pit. Oh, its all regraded just the way Mr. GreenJeans wants, but now it just a matter of putting in the beds. *there are only so many hours in a day.* Y'know, the dirt piles I was supposed to get when this whole project started. Meanwhile, the tree is still sitting at the nursery waiting to be picked up.
In my anticipation of finally having a flower garden, I went ahead and purchased some bulbs, which I shouldn't have done because I know how timelines progress around here. The supply of the ones I wanted was dwindling, and, basically, I want what I want, so I bought them. Good thing I looked in the package because the bulbs were starting to sprout in the packaging. I had to plant them somewhere, and I came up with this...
Also, its just my passive-aggressve way to say "WTF, MAN, WHEN DO THE BEDS GET PUT IN!!!!"
