Happy Valentine's Day!

This is what my honey had delivered on Thursday morning for Valentine's day. They came when all the ladies were here for bible study. I love that! They are alstromyerias.(?) They are just beautiful. He's a very special guy.

He also gave me bags of steer manure, compost, flower and rose food and seeds. It's really what I wanted. Now I just would love to have some dry days to work out in my pea patch. Can't wait.

I have some daffodils called "Cheerful" blooming. They started blooming about 3 days ago.

The top picture is my potting area out under the grape arbor. This is one of my favorite places to be in the summer. I have pots and soil and tools and buckets and all the things I need to garden. Its great to go out to and just putter. I hope to have chickens on the other side of the arbor this spring.

Well, we are sitting here watching speed skating on the Olympics and its hard to concentrate. So I hope everyone has a great day. Ta ta for now!

P.S. Happy Birthday, Carla my dear friend!

What a treat to see Roots Shoots and Trowel & Error listed in your favorites.

Yep, sweet pea planting day. Hurrah! I love the photos of your garden and of the Northwest Flower and Garden Show (MY FAVORITE). I got to judge there in 1999 or 2000. What an eye-opener. Fabulous gardens and gardeners.

Drop into my blog some time for a visit.

Keep up your great writing.

Mom! You potting shed is beautiful!! I am suddenly inspired! Maybe I should make one out of the garden shed...Hmmm... We had a warm day here last week and I tidied up the yard a bit with Sam. Spring is coming around the corner SLOWLY. Your Valentine flowers are gorgious and the line about the manure was a hoot! Love you! Jennifer
