How we have longed for thee...
The daffodils and snowdrops are blooming at the farm:
I changed all my chalkboard signs to Spring sayings:
And put out this sign:
Changed up the mantel:
And entry table decor - I need to bring my Spring garland up to drape over the window frame as it still looks a little bare:
I freshened up the look of the hearth with my Spring wreath and flower arrangement:
And then, I did something I've been wanting to do since we bought the B Farm - I made a flower bed!
The bricks were already there - I discovered them when I started to dig...they were overgrown with weeds. So I dug out the weeds, reset the bricks, moved one of the Lantanas from the other side of the sidewalk, moved some bulbs, and placed my galvanized tub with irises in the corner.
I can't begin to tell you what a pleasure it was to work in this soil compared to the thick, black gumbo we have in the city. Yes, I'm going to love gardening here!
Another spot I've been wanting to tackle is along the driveway. Once again, someone had gone to a lot of trouble to plant a lot of bulbs and irises. But after years of neglect, they were buried and almost lost under layers of leaves and the thorny vines and shrubby stuff had taken over.
|Leaves raked away from the irises|
By mid afternoon, we were tired and scratched up yet we were happy with our progress.
