Prepare for lots of smiles in today's post :) We're in the garden and we're welcoming Spring :)
Have you heard of the wonderful Picture Perfect Project link up? It's a lovely link up that encourages bloggers to snap more photographs, develop their photography skills and along the way make their blogs completely fabulous :) It's also such fun!!
The link up is run every second Thursday of each month throughout the year. It's Monday and due to life (and work) schedules being a little hectic my post for March is a couple of days late but here it is dear ones, go grab a cuppa and settle down for some garden fun and smiles...
If not you can see it here.
Let's take a look and see what we did with the lavender and the beautiful rose bush we bought last weekend and maybe have a look at what's in store in the next few months too...
First on the agenda yesterday morning was to plant the gorgeous lavender...
We've chosen to use an enormous planter for this latest lavender because we're planning on building a little seating area in our back garden and this lovely planter of lavender will sit on one side of the new garden bench.
PeoniesSpeaking of roses, the peonies have started to only just make an appearance through the soil too...
These peonies continue to bloom beautifully over twenty five years later and every year it feels as if my beloved Gramma is with me again.
You can find a printable of these peonies here honeys and you can even follow them beginning to bloom in photographs taken over the course of a week here and there is another printable there too :) I so hope they makes you smile too x
Having planted the lavender, we then cut back the apple tree, whose branches were growing towards the patio. These errant branches would bop us smartly on the head every now and again when we went to retrieve Jade's ball for her from that side of the garden and it was getting annoying - and slightly ouchy.
Yes, you read that right honeys. When we went to retrieve Jade's ball. Our furbaby adores, positively adores playing fetch but for some odd reason she doesn't like the side of the house where the garden turns a corner and if her ball goes off the patio and around there she'll run as far as the end of the patio and then turn back around and look at her Dad or me to tell us to go fetch her ball. We always do. Yep, it's taken her a few years but she's just about gotten us trained the way she wants us :) Wanna know a secret honeys? I wouldn't have it any other way and neither would her Daddy, she's loved just way, way too much for us to mind :)
Having tidied up the back garden and patio, it was off around to our tiny front garden. First job was to tidy up the rose bush we planted in memory of my dear Gramma.I had noticed recently that it had started to wake from our far too long winter and was thrilled yesterday to see that Spring growth has really taken off. To see it we have to look a little closer....
here and here.
Our final task yesterday in our tiny front garden then honeys was to plant the rose bush we choose last Sunday on Mothers day for my dear Mother in law...
Gramma's rose bush blooms in glorious shades of pink while Mum's will be in vibrant shades of red. I so can't wait to see them bloom and I promise I'll take lots of photos to share honeys x
So, there it is. Another month in the Picture Perfect Project link up. I can't wait to go see everyone else's gorgeous pics and I'm so looking forward to seeing what April, with her showers, brings to life in the garden.
