Naughty girls

Like everyone this time of year, I was walking around the house admiring the new growth and blooms of spring.  We lost a few things to the hard winter this year but a lot survived and is
striving to be beautiful despite the weather.

These are zinnias started from seed every year ,they will fully enclose the area and a dwarf
 Weigela My Monet is partially shown, it is not blooming yet. I had three and lost one and trying to locate another one.  These surround a large dinner bell  that we were able to replace of my parents after the fire destroyed everything. This was 4 yrs ago and we are still trying to get the landscaping finished.  But then again do we ever get finished?

Our hostas have done well too as I moved around the house.

Which brings us to the naughty girls.  They have destroyed three different hostas all the way to the ground. it like the were having a party. it did not stop there they got one fern and two iris.

we stopped working on the flower bed about two weeks ago and started on a chicken run.
it looks like we are growing milk cases.

However, one iris did make it through.

But I'm afraid they are discussing that now.

Dad you better hurry up with that run!
Blessing through the week and
be safe til next Sunday.
See you then.


  1. Pretty flowers. This time of year is my favorite :)

  2. I must agree with Danice, a smashing time of the year, everything exploding into life.
    Your girls may be a problem with your Hostas but my problem is slugs and snails. Would the girls like to visit here and eat them for me?
    I have to keep my Hostas in pots with copper tape around the top to discourage the blighter's.

  3. Tonia, spring has sprung! These beauties surviving this angry winter are just signs of small miracles. Your post was the first thing I read this morning. Put me in a very nice mood.
    As for the bad girls~ hey, a girl has gotta eat!
    Thank you for sharing. ~ Adrienne.

  5. your flowers are so pretty and look lovely. We too lost a few flowers over the winter but the ones that are in bloom sure make up for that. But I do feel like they are my babies.
