Happy, Happy Spring!

I live in Colorado and due to the altitude and volatile weather ... It will be the end of May before I can safely do any planting.  Since I just moved to this house in September I'll have a lot to do.  Due to finances I will do it in stages. Some of my favorites that I will be planting this year include: 
Sweet Woodruff and Forget-me-not's (I love to mix these)
Sweet Woodruff
Old Fashion Bleeding Heart 
Roses (ballerina is my favorite... I left a gorgeous one behind in the move)
Soap wort
I can hardly wait...I plan to landscape in the back off of my porch, creating a patio area where I can use my out door furniture.

This was my Mom's favorite.  I always plant it as a tribute to her.

The art below is from one of my favorite artists Jessie Wilcox Smith. Typically she is a children's illustrator. I have collected her art (copies) for years and still keep discovering new pieces.

This print reminds me of me and my daughter, Cori when she was small.

"Mary, Mary........with silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids in a row"

"Watering the hollyhocks"

Well I'm hoping I can discipline myself to start blogging regularly again. I've really missed you all! I'd love to hear from you all!

Blessings, L


  1. I know how you feel, we can't usually plant anything until the end of May here as well.

    The art work is adorable! I can see why you collect it.

  2. We can't plant until the end of May as well. Makes for a short season. But the last few years it has been warm well into the fall.
    My daughter lives in Broomfield, did I ask you before where you live? Her roses and geraniums do so well.
    Love the prints. So sweet.

  3. Hi LINDA!!!
    Glad you are back to blogging and are getting settled into your new home. I hope you'll take lots of photos of your "projects" and show us. You know we LOVE to "see" before and afters!
    I love those prints too! I picked up 2 new peonie plants for my front yard. Can't plant yet...May sometime!
    Thanks for visiting me!!
