In the garden

Not sure what I have really qualifies as a 'garden' but it sounds so much better than 'in the backyard'. :)

Took a walk out to see what was blooming. (my aunt says my backyard looks much bigger in pictures than in real life - let me assure, it is tiny!)

Anyway - in the back corner, I was glad to see this potato vine finally sprouting again! I was afraid it wouldn't come back. The only thing I did to it over the winter (if you can call what we had winter) was to pull the dead stuff off the trellis. After noticing the neighbors coming back I thought I should give mine a look-see and there it is! Yeah!

The hosta has a little bloom trying to pop out - sorry, looks like my 'focus' was not exactly on the bud.

And look at my hydrangea! I'm so loving this! If it makes it through the brutal summer here, I'll plant some more next year - maybe even in the front (side) yard.

Did you have a good weekend? Ours was pretty nice. Nothing on the calendar for a change. On Saturday we drove (or, hubby drove, I rode) an hour to a quilt shop I hadn't been to before. I'm sorry to say it wasn't worth the drive and I came out of the shop without buying anything. I tried to find something - walked around the whole shop at least 3 times but I finally left empty handed. Not that they didn't have anything I liked, they just didn't have anything different than the stores around here. Oh well - there are more shops that I haven't seen yet!
I did get a few stitches in yesterday. Not enough to show an update but a few is better than nothing!
Hope your week is off to a great start. Looks like ours is going to be a warm one!
I can't seem to get the spacing to come out right since blogger started changing stuff. I'll keep trying.

LOVE all of your pretty plants! You truly do have a green thumb, gf! I'm so impressed with your hydrangea. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to grow them, and no luck. Yours is just gorgeous!

Come see me!
