The Country Garden Showcase- Week 9

Everything that slows us down and forces patience, everything that sets us back into the slow circles of nature, is a help. Gardening is an instrument of grace.

Well, that's what I've been up to lately.
It's time to link up and share what you've been doing in your garden, on your farm, and in your  greenhouse...


  1. It looks like things are coming along wonderfully. I divided all my some of my plants today!

    1. That's great Clint. I still need to divide plants... That's a chore I don't enjoy so it's usually last. Have a great week.

  2. You are WAY ahead of me! We can't do anything outside until after Memorial Day...ugh...winter is so long here. xo Diana

    ps. If you get the chance, please pop by my blog and sign up for the for the giveaway to celebrate a new word-BLOVE! Thanks!

  3. I haven't done anything, because I'm not there yet ;) :) I do want to try growing tomatoes this year. My aunt has these really nice flower boxes in our backyard. They sit on top of this wall at waist level, and the flowers inside are dead...but I"m wondering if I can repurpose those to grow some produce? Maybe :) I'll have to measure the boxes to see if they're big enough. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

    1. Hello Heather,
      The flower boxes sound good. I hope you get a chance to grow something in them. Have a good week.

  4. I just ran across you on Google + and have really enjoyed reading some of your blog. I just posted something about Hypertufa, and will link to your blog hop... ":o)

  5. Wow! Things are really coming along! We've had some pretty mild weather here lately, so I'm thinking it's time to take advantage of that while I can, even though we can't put plants in the ground for another 2 months or so.

  6. Hi, I am a new follower linking to your party this week. Seems we are all dreaming of summer gardening. We are still quite far away from that here in Michigan, so reviewed my flower pictures from last summer. Thanks for hosting, hope you will stop by, Laura - Cottage and Broome
