  3. Lucky, lucky you to be out gardening!

    I guess I could say I was out gardening yesterday. I transplanted a 2' blue spruce tree last summer that was now buried under 4 feet of snow ~ I dug it out so the little guy could breathe and get some sunshine. My hubby thought it was funny.

    More birds returned this week even though it's still snowing off & on.

    Enjoy being outside!!!
    Hugs,
    Lin

  4. Life is so different in the other part of the country! We still have snow piles, but the crocuses are starting to poke out of the ground which is always a good sign! Your garden is glorious, the colors are so lively and honestly, I can almost smell the mint in that photo! Thanks for sharing, Su! :)

  11. Soon you will have such a nice garden and it's always nice to have fresh veggies and fruit. I love home grown tomatoes. Thanks for sharing your lovely garden. Hope you have a wonderful end of the week!

    1. Thank you, Julie. Home grown tomatoes are the best. I forget how many different varieties of small tomatoes that I planted, but they do well here. One is going to be plum colored. I have had much luck with large ones;I think it is because it gets to hot before they can get big. While we were away, my said he had the smaller varieties all last summer. Have a wonderful weekend.

  16. I'm envious you already have flowers and vegetables...not in this neck of the woods. I've set up my greenhouse and am outside enjoying planting seeds and starting bulbs. It helps me to know spring and greenery is really coming!

  17. It's just amazing to me that your tomatoes are ready to ripe when it's too early here to even put the plants in the garden!

    1. Thank you, Magali. The purple variety that I planted are already almost all purple. We get two growing seasons basically from September to June. It's too hot for anything to grow in the summer.

  19. Oh, Su, I'm siting here drooling over your photos and trying so hard not to be jealous. To have a garden is a blessing, and to have one this far along in March is a double blessing. I'm happy for you. XO

  20. Its all just beautiful. It is hard to believe you have tomatoes already but you are in the south where it is so much warmer. Seeing your peaches thrill me. We just planted two dwarf nectarine trees. We may plant a dwarf peach tree too. We have strawberries ripening and lemons hanging on the branches. Your brocolli is so pretty. I have never has any luck with brocolli. Enjoy the fruits of your labor. Gardening is so rewarding.

  31. You're garden is looking so neat and perfect at the moment, I'm really jealous. Mine is still a big old mess after Winter. The weather has been awful this weekend, I'm hoping Easter will be better.
