Well...I should probably take photos of the flowers before 8:30 PM......but when do I do it normal!

These were my Mother's Day gift....I'm not a flower in a vase girl...they just die! I love plants!

These are blooming amazingly after only having them in the ground for one day. Let's hope this strange cold weather and severe winds don't hurt them!

These are my Rhododendron.

Thursday, May 6, 2010 it done yet?

Everytime someone asks me what my hobbies are or what I like to do I just can't answer. I don't have a become a mom with a sick child and really you don't think about what YOU like to do's all about your child......

But then after another round of yard work and gardening I realized....I like to garden! I am constantly out there with my dad planting flowers, trees, digging holes...or something of the sort. So there - that's my hobby! I love gardening thanks to my grandpa and my dad....both love to do it. I'm also a freak and love to mow the lawn....

So Haven and I started a garden about two years ago. It was a small garden of randomness. Then she got really sick and we lived at the hospital for a long time. Last summer I never even looked at the just became an overgrown jungle of mess. So last weekend I decided it was time to bring it back to life.

I spent almost 7 hours out in the dirt on Sunday with lots of digging to do. The above used to be I had to take all that off and make a dirtbed.

Then Haven and I went to the store and picked out lots of pretty flowers. She prefers the annuals - which is fine they are only a dollar. But I'm not doing this every we mixed perennial with annual. She helped with picking the spots she wanted the flowers in and I planted them.

Then we had the other side to mom and Haven helped with this side. Haven even got in there and dug out the grass. I really wanted Bleeding Hearts - so those are planted in the middle (naked area). Next year these should look beautiful.

So now I have my cherry tree blooming, peach tree blooming, and a bunch of flowers in the front. Need to figure out what else I can dig up!
