It's Been a Good Week

It's been a good week.
We've made lots of trips down to the Big Bird Feeder and Woodpile to check out chipmunks and quail.

We've managed to finish up most of the gardening chores too. 

The Front Porch is now spic and span.

The picnic benches are topped with Pansies,while the Hostas hibernate between the benches. 

The Sedum Bench has been cleaned and 'refreshed'. 

It's tucked under the eves on the Back Patio.
Usually the cats' chairs are in front of it, so you've probably seen it in the background of lots of my photos.  

I ended up buying a couple of ferns and a few more Pansies.

Oh, and I bought a few more bulbs.  Hey they were 30% off!
They're all potted up now.  I'm hoping for an explosion of spring color.

I never planted out my spring of 2013 bulbs, so I checked to make sure the bubls were still viable.  Then I topped them off with some bone meal.  I wonder how many pots of bulbs I have anyway!

As you can see I still need to clean up my Potting Bench.
Then only thing I'll have left to do is clean and store my garden art bits and bobs.  I can do that come rain or shine.

My, you have been busy... May I ask why don't you plant spring bulbs in the ground?

That sure is alot of work! You're so lucky that you get to keep all your potted plants nearby to see all winter. We only get two views throughout our winter -- either brown and dead or covered in snow.
