Spring gardening

I decided to spend my after-work hours outdoors today! It started with a lunch date with my husband. We work a block away from each other, so I went to his office and we walked hand in hand to Subway, enjoying the beautiful sunshine. After Subway, we stopped at Loard's ice cream for a peanut butter fudge cone. Mmmmmm. And then we walked back to his office.

I decided the sunshine was SO great that I would garden. Now, I'm not a gardener. I don't really like getting dirty at all. But I wanted my garden to have some color and look pretty. So I went to Home Depot to get some potting soil and a towel, and ended up buying a calla lilly and 3/4 of a flat of pansies. I also had a hydrangea I bought yesterday that was marked down from Valentine's Day.

Here's what I have to show for my two and a half hours of work:

Have a great weekend!

I'm linking up with:



  1. I'm jealous the you're gardening already...

  2. In a few days this will look so lovely all in bloom. It feels so good to dig in the dirt. Have a great day.

  3. I wish I could do some gardening. The snow finally stopped but it has been raining ever since. I'm your newest follower. I would love it if you linked your project up to my link party on Monday.
    More The Merrier Monday.

  4. the fruits of your labor will pay off soon enough-i am super jealous of the fact that it's time for flowers wherever you are. not yet for me (in PA).
