First pics of the garden

Goodmorning everybody!

I had to change the shoutbox, because I notice it didn;t show new postings. I did several ones, but nope, nothing!
So I found another one, hopefully this one will work.

We still have nice weather here, and it looks as if today will be really nice, then tomorrow it's said to rain a little bit(good for the gardens!) and then beginning next week temps are creeping up again. Oh, I can;t wait LOL!
I have some a bit miserable photos of the garden. But I wanted to show you how "clean"it looks at the moment, rather empty too, but we are working on that aspect.

On this 1st one You can see the left part of it and look at left. Last year we had there a little rock garden, with the tiny little pond for the frogs and toads. Jan cleaned that area and the kind of rock garden moved a couple of meters to the back, placed just behind the Buddha statue and pond you might see.
Here a view on the back of the garden. Jan did a LOT of pruning and digging there, and it gives a lot of space. Good for the bushes we have there, they have some "air" to grow a bit, but we will keep a good eye on them and prune them down when necessary.
And here a close up from a couple of the new plants we planted last week, standing at the left. It surely gives some happy color in it. Now we are waiting for some seedlings to grow and hopefully after several weeks I can  show you a picture of them. If only half of them will do their best and flower, we will be happy. Jan is "watching them out of the soil", he makes a little tour every day in the garden, and if he has spotted a seedling coming up he tells the big news to me LOL!
If today it is staying nice weather I think we will spend some time in the garden, nice and quiet in the sun, probably Jan with his crosswords and me looking through a couple of garden magazines.

But first I should do some vacuum cleaning at the least, there has to be created some space for new dust binnies, grin grin!

Not much more to tell, so let's go to the freebie for today. A soft colored kit, named It's a Dream.
And look at the things that Arlene made you. two clusters, and a beautiful quickpage as well!
Time to get another coffee, then get dressed, do something in the house and then hopefully some quiet time in the garden.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Wow, thanks for such a pretty gift. Thank Arlene too for her share! Very pretty! Thanks for sharing photos of your garden too, looks great. Jan is doing a great job on the planting.
I had to put my flowers that are potted in the shed to protect them from the icy winds that came through yesterday. We dropped from upper 80'sF to 37F this morning! The winds were horrible yesterday and today they are dying down to 20-30 mph! But supposed to be back up to 70's by Monday! Crazy weather this year!
Got to go shopping so guess I will get off here and get busy! Have a beautiful weekend ahead!
Hugs, Mat

Another beautiful kit. The colors are so dreamy. Kyra, your garden is fabulous. It must be so wonderful to sit out there with a book and just relax. Great job to both you and Jan.

You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

Beautiful kits, but cant download, medifire requires the same junk as blogs these days, cant read words with lines running through them, or words with letters so close together you cant make it out i'm not a robot.
