The Real Spring Cleaning

We had a glorious Spring day……63 degrees….sunny….perfect! The first day that I was able to start cleaning cleaning out flower beds. I was in heaven. Hubby was the picture taker and here is what he saw.

Where did that young girl go that used to be me? Oh well, I still have fun :-} Everything is still just on the verge and therefore looks brown and dead but trust me there are buds and shoots and fronds emerging everywhere.

My gardening buddy, Lucy……she has some winter time pounds to get rid of, too πŸ™‚

The first Daffodil bud to pop.

More Gold Finch

And, finally, my wreath by the door. Don’t look to close. There are still bugs in the light and the wreath has seen better days but I still love it!

Happy Spring πŸ™‚ Rosie

  17. ahhh they smells of spring. It’s beautiful weather here in california.
    I have been setting my flowers out as well. Isn’t nice to be able to have your own little patch of nature in your very own home ?
    I found your site through cindy-my romantic home. Just thought I’d stop by and say hello.

  18. How lovely to see a picture of you. I am looking forward to seeing your garden develop over the next few months.


  19. Linda took the words right out of my mouth. You are a beautiful woman πŸ™‚

  20. Gosh Rosie, you sure did get lots accomplished. I’m so jealous! Guess I better get my butt off the couch and get outside. Seriously, I was outside for awhile today. Got the tractor fired up….spring is exciting, isn’t it?

  21. Glad to see you got out in the nice weather. You look like you were having fun!! The weather has been nice here to. Spring is in the air.

  22. Hi Rosie
    Ah spring… isn’t it wonderful! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I think most of us are in our gardens these days. Nothing like fresh air and digging in the garden!
    Hope you have a great weekend.
