What a difference a couple of months makes in the garden. Mine looked bare & brown in February & now it's full of color & life. :) I love the new header of the wheelbarrow planter. So cute! Any your Nasturiums are gorgeous right now.

Suzanne said...

Oh my goodness -- it has come alive, hasn't it? I loved seeing the progression! Absolutely beautiful!

Dani said...

What a great idea! I wish I would have done pictures like that of the front yard garden.

Valerie said...

Oh how beautiful. You wanna come and visit Ga. and stay with me a day or two? In about 2 weeks, I won't be keeping my 4 month old grandson and we can stay outside all day and work, work, work! I love him to death, but I am an outside person and he is too little to stay outside right now. I have to work in my gardens in the evening right now. You can come and visit anytinme!

All your work has rewarded you with a lovely garden.

Everything is looking wonderful. And I LOVE! that wheelbarrow.

Is it not the best time of year. I am so happy that spring has finally come around. Giddy, kind of happy. I guess that's what I get for going away to somewhere that is even colder than here. Serves me right. LOL.

Wow Darla, Isn't it amazing how things like from month to month???? Even in northern Florida, there's a huge difference between Feb and March.. And then April is amazing!!!! Thanks for sharing the before and after photos. You have a gorgeous yard.

I enjoy seeing photos that show the progression of a garden from month to month or year to year. It is just amazing how they go from barren to lush. Love the way you have pots, wheelbarrows, etc around the garden.

Good Morning Darla - What fabulous gardens you have going there. The foxgloves are putting on a show wearing red. You have worked very hard on those gardens. Thanks for the tour.

Darla - did you know that you received an award last week from me. The Renee Award. Check out my post and take the award and send it to five people you think are deserving of this award. Linking back to me. Do this in a post so others can see it.
