Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

Hubby and I spent ALL weekend working on this:

We ripped out the shrubs and planted a flower bed :)

Our Knock-Out Roses!

Bougainvillea

Mandarin Orange Tree! 
(see the baby orange buds???)

Sgt. Tibbs inspected our work...

And the doggies helped too!

(we are hoping to get rid of the piles of rock next weekend with our herb and vegetable garden project!)

My table is also ready for spring!
(The jar is filled with Easter M&M's and Peanut Butter M&M Eggs!)



Happy Spring!

Jesssssssss, long time, so sorry.

Thanks for tagging me sweetpea... your garden looks awesome and soooo neat! We've finally had a hit of sunshine here and hoping it'll stay since we had a dose of heavy snow about a week ago, which is rare in Athens!

Bet you guys can't wait for BBQ's in the summer!
Have a fab week.

I spotted the Easter candy at Target this week, uh oh! Time for us to stock up!

PS. The arm tattoo didnt hurt nearly like I thought! Easy peasy. :)

Sooo cute! I wanna plant some flowers, but alas, my black thumbs will make sure that my efforts are thwarted.

Ooo I love the spring make over! There is nothing better than having fresh flowers around ;) Sgt. Tibbs is SO CUTE!!!

I am still not sure if my boyfriend will be coming home for a visit or to stay ;( We are both freelancers and have to go wherever the next job is. It's a tough way to live, but worth it for the one you love ;)

I love your cat name too! Such a great job - I'm jealous you get to work with your hands in the garden!
