Spring is just around the corner!!!

A wonderfully warm weekend in north Texas!!! I have been waiting for the warm weather to come back. I went to home depot and found me some grasses to fill in around the pond. Seems like the flowers I get do not last around the water. I saw this suggestion in the Lowes create magazine. I know it was wrong to go to home depot but sometime their prices are cheaper on plants. So this is pony tail grass, the varigated plant is a Marc Anthony Lithrope.

I worked hard clearing out all the flower beds. I had a lot of dead plants, it got cold on me fast so I didn't get the clear the beds and cut down the banana tree's....boy was I sorry! If you don't cut down the banana trees right after the first freeze and wait till now...the smell is awful. They are full of water so that water has become stagnant inside of the plant...yeah lovely!

Then you see that my poppy seeds have come up. These guys I planted last November. There are some more poppy's here by the pansies. I have planted the heart paper with the wild flower seeds. I sprinkled is little bit of garden soil on top. Now it will rain for a couple of days...perfect timing!

The orange flowers and these blue ones, I decided I should not plant yet. Not sure how hardy these would be just in case of one more freeze. I have taken them inside now... its gonna get cold again!
Then I have 2 more projects I have going... my crochet I am doing....I am going to try to continue showing progress, perhaps this will get me to blog more??? I have another baby blanket to make after this one.
Then the necklace I started putting together. I wanted a 3 strand multi colored necklace...mixed with a little sparkle!! of course!!! I think this will turn out nice...I will have to play with the colors more, not sure I like the layout yet. Thats the great thing about making your own!
So now I have blogged!! yeah! I wished I was better at it my co-workers are really good at this!
