We have had a wretched so called "Spring" here at the Jersey Shore. As a matter of fact, since the fall (and Superstorm Sandy), it's been nasty. At the beginning of this week, I still had to warm the car up in the AM before taking my sweet daughter to school.
We have no plant beds cleaned out or fresh annuals planted in them. The lawn looks good and green since we've had so much rain.
I love planting in pots. I also don't tolerate the extreme wind so well. My husband was a sweetie and filled a few pots for me. This cute rusted bike gets filled every year with whatever catches my eye. This year it's white on white for her.
Just a few lonely pots sitting on our porch steps. Our storage space is filled with many more just waiting their turn to be filled. More flowers my hubby planted. He chose all the colors and types this year.
Supposedly, this weekend it's going to hit almost 80 (we go from 40 degrees at the beginning of the week to 80's LOL). We have plans to clean out the beds and plant. I am looking forward to hitting a nursery or two to find more pretties to plant.
This poor Bleeding Heart bush has only a few blooms this year. I guess the cold (and for this long) was just too much for it. It's one of my favorite bushes and it's a sad little thing this year.
Just wanted to share a photo of my babies. Meg is almost 17 and will be going to her PROM this weekend. My sweet Mallory just turned 12 and graduates 6th grade in a few weeks. I am so blessed to have these precious dolls in my life.
Thanks for visiting.
