Morning in the Garden and Willow Creation

Wednesday morning I got to play in the garden for about an hour before I was off for the morning. I walked through the garden taking pitures of the flowers that are starting to bloom and here are just a couple of the blooms.

This is a small iris. They were so pretty with the dew drops on them.

A good friend Linda gave me a bunch of Solomon's Seal last year and they are blooming so well.

This was a plant I bought at the Master Gardener's Plant Sale this year. The name of it is on a tag in the next picture.

This next picture is my new willow creation that my brother Randy made me. It's sitting in front of the chicken run and it has a tub with sweet peas, basil and lemon verbena planted in it. I love it. We had such a good time making it together.

Here it is sitting in the middle of the grass with two bunnies.

Here's a better shot of it. The girls were all in a twit over it being in front of their space. They soon got over it. Just more to look at.

We've had some great days that have been wonderful for being out in. The beds are getting weeded and everything is starting to bloom.

I recieved my "Mennonite Girls Can Cook" cookbook today and have hardly been able to put it down. It has many great recipes and the stories from all the girls are heartwarming. If you've never gone to their blog before, there is a link on my sidebar.

I am waiting for my daughter Sarah to come and pick me up and we are going to go the the "Junk Salvation" show tonight. Our friend Tinell has a booth there with one of her friends and we will find lots of vintage items.

So I'll sign off and say tata.

Okay, so I'm kind of in love with the bench.
And the irises.
And pretty much everything else here...
love you, can't wait to see you! :D

I love your brothers willow creation, it looks like the sort of thing I would put in my own garden. I once made some willow wattle fences, they were a lot of work and lasted but a few years in the garden but were so charming.
