Blue Monday – Japanese Garden   21 comments

I went to the Japanese Garden on Saturday with my sister Ellen.  The weather here in the beautiful Northwest was just gorgeous on Saturday and we decided to go and see if there were any signs of spring budding yet. 

The ducks, turtles and fish were all basking in the sunshine!  Always a treat to visit this garden!

Blue Monday – Blue Flowers   26 comments

Happy Blue Monday!  Today I am sharing my latest blooms that popped up this last week.  I have no idea the name of these little flowers, but every spring they arrive to greet the season.  I purchased a bag of spring bouquet bulbs from a neighbor for a school fund raiser several years ago and have forgotten the name of these little beauties!

Metamorphosis Monday – Mulch   15 comments

Spring is definitely in the air here in the Pacific Northwest.  I got the gardening bug this weekend and spent late Friday and most of the day Saturday putting down mulch/beauty bark.  Here’s the before look:

And 13 bags of mulch and a few new flowers later  – here’s the after…

It smells of spring and I love how clean and fresh the beauty bark makes it look outside! 

I’m ready for a massage, hot bath and glass of wine!  My chiropractor will have her work cut out for her on Tuesday!
