Yeahhhh it felt like summer may be around the corner...FINALLY!

Well, I had a great day in my yard!  Finally got some plants purchased, some beds cleaned out, some plants moved and swatted lots of mosquitoes!!  YIKES they are hungry little guys.  There were a few times I was hopping around the yard and swattin like crazy!

My Mosaic Monday post includes some of the pretty shades of purple I have seen in the past two weeks...

This little table sits just outside our back door...I have some ideas for it, so stay tuned

Before planting

A few trays of flowers to plant..

Always love this happy bloom.

Pansies are one of my favorite annuals..the colors are so pretty and I always 
think of my friend Joanne when I plant them  :)

We have an "outside room" area on the east side of our house.  It is one of our favorite spots complete with a fireplace made from all our field rocks.  I wonder how many rocks I have moved into this yard for borders, tree beds, etc!  I was feeling a little overwhelmed with our big yard today and wondered what it is like to have a "town yard" as I call them.  So, instead of feeling overwhelmed and like there was just too much to attend to, I focused on one bed at a time.

Now, as I sit at the computer  I am ready to get to bed!!  My body aches a little, and I think I got a little sun on my shoulders.  It was a good day though!  Ended with a bbq steak, some fried potatoes and some steamed asparagus!  YUM..oh and 2 cookies and a cuppa hot chocolate :)

I will post some after pics later on this summer when things fill in a little bit.  Gardening on the prairies is such a challenge,,,,,I envy some of the beautiful gardens I see that look like they just grow and grow!  Oh well,,, we prairie dwellers are hardy with a capital "H".  Have a great week everyone!

Prairie gardens are beautiful because they reflect so much effort and time. I hope you slept well and feel raring to go today. Love all the purple. Isn't it wonderful that things are starting to bloom?
