Garden party

Isn't it fun to go out in the spring time and plant flowers and veggies? We have not had a vegetable garden in several years, but this year my dear daughter wanted to plant one. My dear sweet husband made two raised box beds, filled them with dirt, and told her to go for it. We are looking forward to the fruits of her labor.

And the flowers that I planted around the pond are starting to do their job and are blooming like crazy!

The Pioneer Woman would be proud! I'll keep you posted on the progress of the vegetables.

I love my gardens. I used to do veges in a raised bed garden but that one now is only flowers. We made a bigger vegetable garden last year and I plan on making one again. Your daughter will love making a garden. By the way, first time visitor and I love your blog.
