A busy weekend ~

It looks like it is going to be a very busy weekend!

My local garden center had a sale last night and I picked up some things to plant in the front garden where I recently removed the grass.

Some Gaillardias to soften the edges of the new paths. They perform so well here and add such wonderful spots of color.

Vincas, Santa Barbara Daises, and creeping thyme to plant under the new fountain...I will eventually plants pink roses here but that must wait until the weather cools down.

...Petunias and Alyssum for some pots: I love the scent of Alyssum, I wish they could bottle it.

Yes, I am definitely going to have a busy weekend!

I hope yours is a great one.

Thank you for visiting


  1. That is my kind of busy weekend . . . at the end my muscles ache from all the bending . . . but the garden looks wonderful and the aches are worth it.

    Have fun!

  2. Love your choice of flowers. I really like the Santa Barbara daisy's and they really re-seed.
    I bought a few things also, so have to get cracking and finish up. Looking forward to seeing your pretties.
    Don't work to hard.

  3. You really do have a splendid eye for your selections. Chris is officially done with his school year and has been knee deep in mud and enjoying every second of it. I think this shovel is permanently attached to his hand.

  4. Lots of work ahead, Adrienne. But the kind we don't mind doing. The pay off is so worth it. Happy Tuesday..Judy

  5. It's the best kind of fun isn't it Adrienne! I love going to the nursery and bringing home some new plants to put in the ground. You have picked some lovelies to add to your garden. By now I know you have them all in the ground and I'm sure they are happy, happy, happy!
    sending hugs...
