Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Maybe Mother Nature is not deaf

 Or so it might seem. After all my griping ,whinging, and crying about it not being spring yet..
Today was an exception and perhaps the begining of the season... Crossing fingers yet  however.. This morning I went to the Nursery and purchased a few plants to add some color to the outside planters. Including the Bath tub that sits at the entry to our drive/lane. Clay & I painted it flat black and hope the deer will stay away from the colorful plants, once they get a good start. We have not had many deer around yet so perhaps they think  like me the Spring flowers will never come.   I also planted a cute basket for my porch table  and a couple pots on the porch steps and as you can see the "girls"  also think it nice enough to have a little dust bath. The landscapers come in a couple weeks  to add major changes of trees, flowering shrubs and bushes to our yard.   I can hardly wait to see the results. We met with the designer yesterday and picked out some nice colorful plants that will do well in our climate. Maybe next week I will get the wicker couch pad recovered and set it out  onthe porch too...

Cheryl, we were both taking advantage of the sunshine and planting. I filled 3 pots and 3 hanging baskets yesterday with color. Lovely, warm color.

I've learned not to add flowers around my front yard trees. We get deer that meander in my end of our neighborhood and they like my yard. Is there a bedding flower that deer don't like?
