It’s been a while eh?
I know…I’ve been busy with life and such, you all know what I mean I’m sure.
I thought I would share my spring garden and a few little critters who came to visit! Lol
Whenever I’m out in the garden my little munchkins follow me to watch whatever it is I’m doing (along with watching some fledgling robins that my daughter and I have saved a number of times!)
Most of you will know by now my chihuahua “Butters”, and cats “Jack” and “Tara”, can you spot them all?
Here is Jack in the midst of my garden. He sits under this mulberry tree that I really trimmed back earlier this spring, he loves to hide under it and “study” the wildlife. I’m thankful that he is big and bulky and lacks any real stealth that is required to catch this wildlife.
I’ve added some hanging plants this weekend and fell in love with these blue lobelia.
Here is Butters beside a couple of hanging plants that I’ll be putting out on the back deck.
Hubby was in the middle of hanging up the spring/summer screen door, so please disregard the mess.
This post is basically a before as I will be repainting the door and will be adding some different cushions to the muskoka chairs.
I love this pic because Butters and Jack are usually such camera hogs and they both decided to look away while Tara who is so shy decides to ham it up.
Lots of work to be done here but you can see my bleeding hearts in white and pink as well as my “snow in summer” in full bloom. I have a couple of peonies that will bloom in a couple of weeks as well as a couple of clematis.
I have a couple of pots of lavender to plant as well as some other plants to move.
I really should do some edging, add some manure, along with some mulch…
Now if only these little critters could pick up a shovel! Lol
Thanks for stopping by today,
blessings upon you all.

Very pretty, Kim! I really need to get out and buy all the flowers for the front but I've just been so laaaaazy this weekend.
You've inspired me though!!

Oh what a beautiful porch and yard. The blues, purples and pinks are perfect together and make a wonderful statement. The fur babies are way too cute and add so much! What great pictures! They look like they belong in a magazine! And I love the pictures of your Jack, it's almost as if he's saying "who woke me up again"?
I wanted to thank you for following me quite some time ago, and I so apologize for not making it over right away!! I am your newest follower now.
p.s. I am in love with your new kitchen!!! We are going to be putting some shelves up just like that, in fact we already have the pine and the braces like yours.
Have a great week! Oh and the Bleeding Hearts are one of my favorite plants. I believe it's too hot to try to grow them here, but I'm about to find out and I have a cooler shady part to attempt to grow them.

Love your furbabies and your flowers! Isn't spring wonderful?
*sigh* Your garden is so pretty. I just love the way you've used both sides of the sidewalk and the mix of plants is so pleasing to the eye. I've been pouring over your photos and I think I've managed to name all the plants and made a least a page of notes. Thanks so much for sharing this with us today. I really enjoyed it.
Your garden couldn't possibly be any prettier… !
Your garden is beautiful Kim!
