.... and we transformed one little corner of our world into a pretty flower bed. It's just a little spot at the end of the ramp off the back deck but it turned out so pretty.
There are some pretty little variagated hostas that I planted from roots last year. I thought they had been lost to the drought but they came back. Hurray!
Then we surrounded the area with rocks that we harvested ourselves. I just love when we can beautify our environment at little or no cost, don't you? We ran out but I hope that we can gather the remaining rocks sometime this week.
The boys worked hard to add some Lily of the Valley roots. I just adore that flower. The fragrance is so sweet and the little white bell flowers are so simple & pure.

Then we filled in the area with some inexpensive pine mulch. Ta da!
Here I am wearing another "thrifty find" apron from our fun yard sale trip this weekend. It is so perfect for gardening ~ crafted from heavy denim and lined with muslin. It has hand stenciled accents and even came with with matching gardening gloves ... but I just had to wear my orange ones today!
Finally, I planted some annual flower seeds. It is always such fun around here because it NEVER fails that I forget where I put my planting "map" and when summer rolls around, I get all sorts of colorful surprises! LOL
