Its My Birthday!

My sweet, sweet family has been so great!  The roses are planted, the bad grass dug up, the planter is a hare's breath from being finished and ready for planting!  I can't wait to get that completed.  All that is left to to is transplant my rhubarb into a new whiskey barrel planter and get the Parisienne Clematis in the ground as well as the lovely delphiniums I was able to get with my birthday gift card to Home Depot-thank you Sis for those!

I got some cool radishes and carrots to plant, the radishes are dark, dark red, almost black on the outside and the carrots are purple flame!  Then some dill and the cucumbers and beets in the big new planter.  Fun and healthy and pretty -what could be better!  Enjoy your day-I have! with lots of help from my crew!

It's My Birthday -Almost!

Its kind of funny the expectations we can all have about birthdays.  For my sweet family and I we have a rule that whomever's birthday it is rules the day and possibly the weekend!  My poor husband gets pounded in May, our anniversary, Mother's day, our sweet son's birthday and my birthday too! Yikes!  I on the other hand LOVE IT!  The flowers are blooming, its time to plant the garden and whatever I say goes!  Well mostly.

So this weekend we are planting my beautiful new roses...the lovely one I got from my sweet family for Mother's day and the Eden Rose I have been over the moon for since I first saw it in Country Living!  It is stunning and I can't wait to smell their fragrance and see them romantically climbing the corner of my porch....
