My focus this spring has been on the vegetable garden, and I haven't put a whole lot of energy into the flower gardens. Luckily though, they are fairly established and so all I have done is planted some annuals, and put up a few hanging baskets. The beds all need a bit of weeding after our recent rain when they burst forth big time, but overall the flowers are looking pretty good.
Basically our patio is finished although it's a bit of a mess right now and the weeds are crazy out there too. We do still need to add a few flagstones right next to our back step and the goal is to do that before our big party on the summer solstice.
That's Penny enjoying the sun and wondering what the heck I am doing and does it involve food for her somehow. I know that look.
I do not normally go for garden decoration or ornaments, but how could I pass on a pink flamingo? Even Doug (the ultimate snob concerning decoration) agreed that it was a good addition to the back flower garden.
