So I Was Totally Gardening Today!!!

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...
  • One side of the porch..

Other Side of the Porch

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.

 And I got all crafty with some chandelier crystals that I bought at The Worlds Largest Yard Sale last summer. And since there is going to be no bed, just grass, in this corner, I thought I'd dress up the fence a little. I found a picture on Pintrest where you drill little holes in the fence and put marbles in to make colorful knotholes and considered doing that. But there's no way Mr. GreenJeans was gonna be cool with me taking the Ryobi to the wood. So, next best thing....crystals. The pictures doesn't do it justice. *The dirt pile doesn't make it look too hot either, but lets not go there.*  I positioned them in front of the little spaces between each slat where the setting sun can go thru and a little breeze makes them dance a little. Kinda neat when the sun is setting and the crystals are throwing off light.
