Little Red...

I guess I forgot to show you my
new little red garden scoot!
I asked for it and I got it!
I plan on riding it around the back patio when I'm planting all my flats of flowers!
Okay it's not a sports car- but hopefully it will save my back a few aches and pains!
The back sports a "removable" basket for a bucket and under the "swivel" and "adjustable height" seat is a tray for tools or whatever you like!
It has an adjustable length handle with a little built in stop so it won't crash to the ground!  P.S. it holds up to 400 lbs! I think I'm ok yet!!  

I think it's a very well thought out product!

Just in case you are wondering where this "rare" find came from here is the link !

Yesterday we had warm temps but
threatening rain.
One of my garden areas heavily laden with oak leaves and compressed mulch...
I raked and raked and raked and
got it cleaned up...and the sun came out!
(I used my iPhone for the pictures so they are good but not great)
This is my pile and my first efforts
outdoors with my gardens.
This was my 2nd target area but it
wasn't nearly as bad.  My new boxwoods
I planted last spring are doing great!
There are hostas coming up, tulips, daffodils,
coral bells and before long the topiary lilac will be blooming!
This is my my other workhorse...
our GardenWay cart (probably 25 years old now) that company doesn't sell them by themselves any longer but now you can order from the same place we got the garden scoot from and get the new version 
I loaded up the pile to take out back.
The sun disappeared quickly and I barely got my tools put away and it was raining.
We need it so no complaints!
I need to take some pictures of the
tulips!  It's tulip time!!
Speaking of that- we are going to 
head to Holland, Michigan for the
tulip festival soon!

Hello and welcome to my garden site. I hope you enjoy my garden.


  1. That is the cutest thing! You are a serious green thumb gardener, I see. I think it is wonderful that you can go to "Holland" for the tulip festival and don't need a passport! I am wanting more and more to take a vacay in Michigan. xo

  2. I shall bring that scoot to the attention of Mrs Tootlepedal.
