Garden Envy

I’m so envious of you ladies who live in a warmer climate and have already been able to plant flowers and vegetables. We’re not really safe to plant here till after Mother’s Day. I always want to plant before then and have the itch for weeks. It’s So Hard To Resist Planting. I thought I’d look through some of my pictures from last year to remind me how beautiful my yard can look if I resist just a little longer. Here’s some inspirational photos of my yard from last Summer.

We’ve been having beautiful weather the last few days.

But we’re expecting rain tomorrow (which isn’t bad) but possibly snow the 2 days after that.

Don’t be surprised. It’s actually snowed here on Mother’s Day before.

Because I have a North facing house. My tulips aren’t even blooming yet.

But that just means I’ll be enjoying them longer into the season, right?

I can get out and till now and at least play in the dirt a little.

I can’t wait to see all these beautiful flowers again.

And the garden fresh fruit and vegetables.

I can’t wait to taste these again, but it’s always a battle who gets them first. Us or the birds.

I don’t know if this helped my situation or made it worse. I can at least get the peas and carrots in now. Maybe that will hold me over for a while. You don’t know how lucky you warmer climate girls have it. I’ll have to live vicariously through you for the next few weeks.

    We’re in the same boat in Colorado. A safe bet is plant after the 15th of May here. It is hard to resist. I usually plant a few more perennials and that tides me over. We feed the neighborhood birds with our strawberries too!

    Stop it! I struggle every year trying not to look at the flowers when you go into a store. I have to wait so long. It’s crazy. Then it is over so fast. Oh well, that is just how it is up here.

    Ohhhhhhhhh, it’s all so pretty. You will enjoy the garden with a green thumb like you seem to have. Heck, our Spring blooming season is nearly ended…in just a few weeks it’s gonna be too hot for them to flourish…the predicted temps over the weekend are gonna be the 90s already? Not this soon?!!!
