Getting in the groove again!

Well I found some Dwarf English Boxwoods to go in this area
that borders the sidewalk and the walkway by the garage.  
 I think these little boxwoods will be
easy enough to take care of...
 I've got to find one more, but so far I'm
not doing well. 
This will look better once I've got them planted.
 I almost forgot to take a picture of my magnolia...
it bloomed so beautifully this year...
The frangrance is great, even at a distance you
can smell it!
 I adore this Jack Frost, Brunnera...in part because
the color of the flower is sensational!
My little girl statue looks like she's checking them
out...I think she likes them too!
Today was about planting annuals. Every year I
get out my Gardenway cart and start loading
it with the annuals as I collect them.  We
have to be careful of frosts for so long here
it's always a gamble as to when to plant them.
So I stack them on the cart, move them in and
out of the garage until I feel it's safe!
I always think if Liza Doolittle in My Fair Lady and the
flower carts they used when I load up my cart!
 I started with these flower pots that I potted
 white Apple Blossom begonias.
Our son is getting married in July and I
decided on all white this year because of it.
These will look gorgeous as they get larger.
I added some of these Etain Violas in a couple of spots.
They have a lovely soft fragrance!
I've planted Cordyline in these cement pots
with some lime colored Coleus.
 I went with these Royal Purple Salvia and more
Violas
This crackled pot caught my attention
at T.J. Maxx's....as these flowers
develop it will be cheery and colorful!
My daffodils have been blooming for a 
few days..the tulips are close
to blooming!  So much
is happening so quickly! 
I truly love
spring!
It's a little hard getting going every spring
but I'm getting in the groove again!
