The only problem with spring is it’s tax time……..AGAIN. I’m busy getting our stuff together for our CPA, I’ll be back at the easel in a day or two. In the meantime I thought I’d share a few of our garden pictures with you! Rosie and Ruby are doing great! You can CLICK HERE to see when we planted them last month.

Here I’m standing next to Rosie looking up toward the fountain courtyard. We’re going to put Cherry Tomatoes on the trellis along the back of the deck. All of our Tomatoes are in pots on the deck, just waiting to get their feet in the ground on April 1st! You can click on the picture to see it larger.

We had a surprise in the Bluebonnets along the front walk, a RED one popped up right in the middle of the bed!

    Love the garden. My husband has been growing tomatoes, pickling cucumbers, and various flowers in the basement under a grow light so as soon as any danger of frost has passed, into the ground they will go. I do about 3 5lb. buckets of potatoes and grow some onions and bell peppers. There is something about bring the veggies in from the garden and eating them at meal time. Thanks for sharing all your spring glory. Nebraska is getting there!!

    I agree that my least favorite part of spring is preparing tax papers! I love that you mixed this post with the beauty of spring to counterbalance the Ick of taxes!
