An early spring garden

We have been very busy working on our garden here! We have had some nice days! Today was one so to inspire those here in the Northwest here are some pictures of my Garden today.  There is still a lot of work to do but it has come a long way and has a nice fresh look to start out the spring.

We put gravel down because it was too muddy. It has been nice so far with all the dogs.


Here is the full view – pieced together because I couldn’t get it all in one…

Herb Garden


I can’t wait until the leaves come in on this lace leaf Japanese maple. It makes me think of the one my mother in law has in her yard with a little boy statue nestled in


Up the side yard – So much easier to pull wheelbarrowDSC00076


This is my rain barrel – It is super handy – Not pretty but a money saver for watering all our plants I would like to build something to sort of hide it – maybe some lattice



I want to paint this chair blue…I should be able to get it done this week



This tree has struggled. It was on the first tier but I pulled it out and stuck it in a pot. It seems to be doing well since it started bloomin! :)

First spring bloom on this plant



The Man’s Fire Pit… A start to it… We had these extra bricks we like it and will finish going around the firepit




Have fun in your gardens! I hope you get to get out there in the sun!
