Tip toe through the tulips

Well okay no tulpis here so how about tip toe through the azaleas, rhododendron, bougainvillea, and petunias. Oh there is a blue berry and rose bush back there too. On Monday my sister and I worked hard in my backyard making this little patch of paradise. I cannot wait for it to fill out and hope that the curse of the black thumb doesn't rear it's ugly head.

The crowning jewel of my garden has yet to be placed though. My sister had my girls make a stepping stone with their hand prints, "diamonds of all colors" and the year. It is drying now and I cannot wait to add it right in the center of the petunias.

We are thinking about attacking other sections of my yard to turn into more gardens. I'd love to do a veggie one but there are just too many critters around for that I think. There is a family of bunnies that live under my neighbors garage which is right behind where I would be doing this. I bet they'd love it if I did.

We planted our garden on Monday as well. We did veggies tho, no flowers. We have pumpkins, strawberries, cucumbers, carrots, peppers. We are even going to try our hand at brussel sprouts and dill and oregano!!!!
