Just some flowers today...






Some flower pictures from my garden...















Of course,  they are much more spectacular now than when I took these pictures,  but I am too lazy to redo them.   haha  Must be my old age.

My indoor seed starting was so successful this year,  that I am still planting the stuff that I grew.  And that means getting the ground ready to put the plants in.  That is the most work!  I had to buy some compost this year as my compost that I make is not ready yet.  So,  that means hauling these heavy bags of stuff around and then having to incorporate the stuff into the existing soil.  A lot of work!  But I am driven to do this.  I don't know why,  I just have to do it!  I look at the flowers and the combinations and say to myself,  this is all worth it!   I love the flowers and I love the hard work that goes into it.  

It's supposed to be hot today,  85 degrees,  so I will start early today.  I still have some more plants to put in today.  Oh,  and I found 35 gladiolas bulbs that I bought in a weak moment a few months ago,  so now I have to figure out where to put the darn things!  Guess I better get started!

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean

Hi Jean, your garden beds are stunning, and will be even more lush as the summer progresses. I know what you mean about being "driven" to garden. It takes a ton of work, lots of time and effort... and money, but it is worth it. I will enjoy watching your gardens grow and change over the next few weeks. I see you love the cool colors of blues and lavenders, me too.Most of my gardens are thus with the exception of my Native gardens.
