Prise de du temps de sentir les fleurs

Don't hurry,
Don't worry,

And don't forget to smell the flowers

-T. Rice

After work this evening mum and I were puttering around the garden making our 'To Do List' for the garden. So far, the list consists of:

1.) Arranging flowers in hanging baskets
2.) Getting new soil/cocoa mulch for the garden
3.) Going to our favourite greenhouse to purchase the newest editions for the garden: pansies, snap dragons (my favourite) and lilies (just to name a few!)
4.) Tending to the weeds (although I think this should be #1 on our list!)

On the days that I have off work, I spend most of my time gardening, planting, watering the flowers and mowing the lawn, and this morning I was ecstatic to see the shrubs and some of our plants in bloom. The hosta, daffodils, tulips, and our flowering shrub have all appeared and look absolutely stunning...a sign of what is to come!

Your garden is lovely, and blooming well I see. Love the purple leaf sand cherry. My grandson always loved ours as he said the flowers smelled like bubble gum? Not sure about that..!
