Hello Beautiful

Posted by Picasa

Spring is definitely here. I saw Blue Bonnets, Indian Paint Brushes, wild violets, irises and grape hyacinth blooming all along the road one my way home from the library. When I pulled up in the driveway, I was greeted by a beautiful sight. My Mutabalis rose bush is in full bloom and showing all of it's colors. Each flower starts out as a red bud and slowly fades from pink to peach. I find this plant to be simply amazing.

I'm A Winner - Finally

I've been sharing and commenting and all but begging to win something over at Double Danger all week. Yesterday, all my stalking paid off. I won the "Complete Idiots Guide to Composting" by Chris McLaughlin and I couldn't be more tickled. I am going to donate it to the library after I read it, of course. James and Shala are still giving some great gardening stuff away so make sure you mosey on over there and leave a comment to win.
