So this is the Springtime Flower Post. I have been experiencing tremendous satisfaction lately with all of the flowers showing their appreciation for the time I have spent with them. We have one bed that is looking really great, making the ones I haven't gotten to yet look pretty awful. So I try not to look at those ones. Ranunculus are my favorite flower, and they have been producing way more flowers than I ever expected (especially since I expected them to die!) The nasturtium that H. Shack planted long ago have come back to life and have lots of flowers, same story on the roses-- they are gorgeous! Neighbor M and I are planning on planting lots of lavender and rosemary in the very front, right now there is just one of each. All of this rain has made the gardening easy. It is a lot of fun. Have I mentioned that our amazing landlord reimburses us for anything we spend on the yard? I keep thinking I must be dreaming!

I LOVE these flower pictures. It's making me wish for a little bit of dirt to plant something in. I'll probably be satisfied with a run to TJ's to pick up some potted plants.

Amazing landlord, indeed : ) We have enough space here so that anybody who wants to play in the dirt should come over and have a go at it!

Yay, Ariana, for bringing so much new life to this old place!

Lovely! What a great pay off for your efforts! I can hardly wait to see how the place looks when I come to visit!

Beautiful photos. You must have a green thumb. And we sure enjoyed the same landlord when we were there too.

You have such luck with gardening! How do you do it? I have nothing but weeds and dead plants to show for my gardening desires. :( Yours look lovely!
