Gracie waiting for a visitor. Luckily she's not quite smart enough to figure out that she could squeeze through, so we can never leave her out front alone just in case she realizes it. She has been so happy to run around the front yard and stick her nose out to say hi to neighbors walking by.
Awhile ago I sprinkled Bachelor Buttons and Poppy seeds around and they are starting to sprout. As it warms I'll sprinkle more annual seeds around the fence.
The arbor that my husband and father-in-law built is all painted.
The Littlest Gardener was following me along to tell me about the Ladybug she had found, the first we've seen this year. (The hanging baskets with plastic are our neighbors, not sure what he's got planted in them this year.)
I love seeing the white fence now when I look out our front window.
We're trying roses in these large pots and we'll see how they do. The ground here is probably not the best for roses, clay with poor drainage and this is where it starts to slope.
I can't wait until the fence is covered in flowers this summer!
We actually hit 70 degrees today and both my husband and I got a bit of a sunburn, I think we forgot how hot the sun can get since it's been so long since we felt it this warm. It looks like the Easter bunny will be hiding the eggs inside, the rain is supposed to return tomorrow.
Happy Easter!All words and photos in this post are property of A Gardener in Progress.
