Old Friends

The other day I found some old friends in the shed.










They had been waiting patiently for me.












Quite some time had passed since we were last together.
 After catching up a bit - it was time to get busy.

First we planted some lettuce, radishes, and beets here.




Then we moved on to place these violas in their new home.  I think Bunny was happy for some company.   He had been rather lonely.









Mrs. Hummingbird stopped by to over see the process.   She chatted a bit and then moved on.


Later another sweet visitor stopped to say hello.  This one thought we were doing a fine job.









.

Scooter was not quite as happy.   He thought a bit more work needed done.  His path seemed a bit too weedy.







Unfortunately the rain moved in and we didn't get finished.  I am sure though that tomorrow my old friends will be more than happy to join me.




So glad that you took time to stop by..
Hope you find some old friends waiting for you too.   Have a great evening.

  3. Doesn't it feel great to be outside again, digging, hoeing dreaming, planting and burning calories?! I am always amazed at how many pounds I've lost after a long day in the garden, a nice side effect of gardening.

  12. I am so seeing that shed as a wonderful art studio! I now have thoughts of heating and air conditioning issues for it, how far it is to walk to in winter and summer...but my path would be lined with flowers at your house! Lovely post, Debbie, and the violets look beautiful! Are they in a tree trunk?

  17. Wonderful pics. You are a busy lady. My old friend are three garden Gnomes; one cast iron great, great granddaddy Gnome that was my Grandmother's and three younger ceramic Gnomes that my sister gave me from Massachusetts whom I call the cousins from MA. They will be up to mischief on my blog all spring, summer and fall but they draw the line at winter and hibernate in the shed. I love old friends. Have a great week!

  25. I too was so happy to see our wrens return, and our hummingbirds, and a blue jay! The wrens helped clean up after grooming Raja out on the patio, they would take some of her hair and carry it back to their bird house. !
