Joining Tootsie Time for Fertlizer Friday today.
You might want to grab a cup of coffee of drink of your choice and sit back. My post today is way too long. I shouldn't wait so long between posts. I fully intend to post more frequently. I feel love for you all. Hang with me though.
The weather is so upset lately. So sorry for all the loss of lives and homes and business's from the tornados this week. So sad the destruction that these storms cause. So much sadness in the news lately. I won't go there today though.
I was glad to see some seedlings coming up this week. I think these are the Zinnia Green Envy.
This is Delphinium Sky Blue Magic from seedlings. Photo below.
These will be growing next to Zinnia Green Envy and Ecinachea Purpea and Hollyhock Yellow.

Clematis is not up yet. Expecting it soon though with all this warm weather we are having.

Echinacea is not up yet.
These are seedlings from Pink Hibuscus I received from Lona Dawn from A Hocking Hills Garden. Thank you Lona. Can't wait to see them bloom. In this same bed I have Split Second Morning Glories, Aquilegia Caerulea and Aquilegia Sunshine. Photos below.

It's looking like I will have an abundance of Blueberries this year. The bush is loaded and very active with bees. I dare not get too close since it looks like a ton of bees are enjoying the flowers.It tried to get a photo of the bees but they were very busy flitting from each flower so quick.
I did manage to catch a critter on the Pear tree. The tree is loaded this year.
The plum tree is really coming along nicely. The leaves are clustered on the tips. Just as happy as could be.
This pansy's will probably soon lose it's flowers. The weather is getting too warm.
I got a haircut last week and haven't posted a pic of myself in a while. Can't change the blogger photo without purchasing google space. Oh well.
I've had a couple of people who wanted to see a painting I did. This was done 5 years ago and since then I haven't painted much. I'm ready to get back into it, just bought new paints, and hone in some of my pitiful are skills. I chose watercolor because it seemed to be the easiest and I've never used any other medium. People who paint oils and acrylics have said that watercolor is the hardest to paint - leave it to me to pick the hardest. I began painting about 9 years ago as a form of therapy after going through some trauma. I looked for an outlet and painting was it as it took my mind off of things and focused on something positive. I could paint whatever I was feeling. Painting water is calming to me and I love barns and the like.
Just got my new edition of Southern Living. Looks like this one is all about spring and gardens. Can't wait to dig in to this one.
