Fertilizer Friday!

Hey guys! I thought I would join Tootsie for Fertilizer Friday. Please pay her a visit, she is an amazing gardener! Ahhhh...I remember when my backyard looked like this. I am so ready to have green grass and blooming flowers again!

I'm ready to sit out here and enjoy the nice weather while sipping on a glass of sweet tea. Please!! No more of this...I don't think I can take anymore! lol...

My trees are starting to bloom. We have been anxiously awaiting since we planted them after they flowered last year. The one in the background is new so it's not blooming as much. The other tree croaked last year!

The creeping phlox is starting to bloom too. I have alot of this and it gets thicker every year...it's so pretty! I think spring is finally here!!

One more thing...Congrats to one of my dearest friends, Kim. She got engaged tonight! Her boyfriend surprised her in front of her friends and family. Congratulations!!!!!
We are leaving for Branson in the morning for a little getaway, but when I get back I plan on making more items for my Etsy Store. I hope to find more birds and birdhouses while I'm up that way. Have a great weekend!!

Kristen,
Enjoy your trip to Branson and bring back lots of warm sunny weather! I like the pretty pink on your tree and creeping phlox. We lost a big tree last winter and our new one is slow to bloom also.
