Finally. Gardening season is here!

Time to get my hands dirty. Time to get planting. Time to create beautiful pots of flowers to pretty up the front porch. Time to get out the chicken wire to deter the bunnies.

Hey, not everything about gardening is fun. πŸ˜‰

Here are a few photos of what I’ve been up to since last weekend … I’ve got much more to do but this was a good first step!
