A Few Stolen Moments In The Garden

Hello again my sweets!
We had a beautiful weekend here in Indiana.
I stole as much time enjoying the garden as I could squeeze in.
We have been busy with the girls of course.

 But not too busy to enjoy my little hellebores blooming.
 I have a very small colony going... there are 8 plants... but hopefully they will take off and multiply!

This week we have seen a big warm up and the overnights are in the high 50's.
That means the garden is going to burst with new growth this week.
The late daffodils are  blooming.
 I love the "pink" doubles that look more peach, but still lovely.
Spring seems to pass so quickly... I have to soak it up as much as I can.
Speaking of enjoying the good.... Our oldest is having a wonderful tennis season.
She and her team won her first HS invitational this week.
We enjoyed seeing her play immensely... she is a hard worker.
And a bit competitive...  wonder where she gets that?

  1. Brooke, I love hellebores, but don't have anyplace with enough shade where I think they would survive (although I think I need to try anyway, I just love them). Your double daffs are gorgeous! That peachy color reminds me of Just Joey roses - another favorite of mine. I know you're busy, and in another recent post I remember reading you are working a couple days a week. I thought you went back to work f/t, or were they flexible enough to just make it a few days? Sounds like your life is full of all the things that matter - family first, then the home & garden, and that necessary evil that funds a lot of it all - a job. ;) Here's to being the Type E woman - everything to everybody!

  2. Such lovely bursts of color in your garden already! I can't wait to see what this season has in store for you!
    Congrats to your daughter and her team.
    Enjoy the spring weather!
