Playing in the Dirt

On Saturday we spent some
time at our favorite garden
center. They have some of
THE best flowers and veggies
here in the city.

 Here is what we picked
up: three tomato plants,
six pepper plants, two
geraniums, 2 sets of
marigolds, one six pack
of a marbled coleus,
potting soil, moss and
some seed packs--corn,
radishes, turnips, grass
and butterfly flowers.

The geraniums are
hanging out in the
wagon on the front

I had this wire basket
that was picked up at
a garage sale, not sure
of what I wanted to do
with it--I held on to it.
Recently I saw in a
magazine a basket filled
with the moss, my light
buld went on and I made
one of my own! It lives
on the back deck. I
really like how it turned

While I was working
on these, Mr. Ken was
playing in the dirt.
He planted the peppers,
radishes and the corn.
Still need to get the
tomatoes in. We are
going to have a great
garden this year! Pics
Thanks so much for
your wonderful words
of wisdom on my last
post. Your thoughts,
prayers AND support
mean so much to me!

~Keep on Dreaming~


  1. Love this time of year!
    Nothing better than diggin' in the dirt, and growing garden goodness :)

    Love the planter!

  2. Vehemently DISLIKE new format by blogger. Do not like change whatsoever re computer stuff.

    Love all the goodies you bought to get into the ground. Just itchin' to get diggin' here also. It is cold, rainy & even had hail/snow here today.

    Have a beautiful day ~
    TTFN ~

  3. Oooh, fun! I love digging in the dirt, especially with flowers! Love the little wire basket, too cute!

  4. Oh honey, I firmly believe in 'Dirt Therapy'!!!

    It looks like ya hit the jackpot in plants. I can't wait to see your whole garden.

    Have a wonderfully blessed day sweetie!!! :o)

  5. Looks great! My seeds are slowly growing by the window, but we can't plant or put anything outside til May 24 weekend, it's still cold here(we had snow today!) So glad you were able to get in the dirt, it really is good therapy!

  6. So pretty!! You are so lucky to have a resource like that :) All is lovely but I'm partial to that marbled coleus! -Tammy

  7. You sure do have some great looking goodies there. The best part is that you will be able to enjoy them all summer....
    Have a great week..

  8. I am not much of a gardener but my dh sure love to garden. He even expanded his veggie gardent this year. I love the flower in the wagon. Very cute!

  9. Oh, lucky you, playing in the dirt! I love doing that and can't wait until it warms up. I have never seen marbled coleus with the colors of yours, beautiful and the geraniums are pretty too!

  10. Those coleus are such a pretty color. I don't think I've seen that variety before. I just saw a basket today when I was out shopping and thought what the heck do I need another basket for - to plant in, of course!!!


Thanks! Hope you enjoyed today's post. Come back soon.
