~~ Spring Forth In Bloom~~

I got a little carried away this year, as you can see (the other 1/2 of the flats were out back) ... it took 10 hrs one day & 8 the next day to get all these little beauties into the ground. I tell you I could barely move ... it hurts to sit, it hurt to bend, it hurt to move my fingers, my toes hurt ... all I could do was groan for 4 days.

BUT, oh, the beauty that will spring forth shortly from this array of 700 gorgeous colorful flowers. I can hardly wait to show you the 'after planting' pics.

Often your tasks will be many
And more than you think you can do
Often the road will be rugged
And the hills insurmountable, too.

But always remember, the hills ahead
Are never as steep as they seem
And with faith in your heart start upward
And climb til you reach your dream.

For faith is a mover of moutnains
There's nothing that God cannot do
So start out today with faith in your heart
And climb till your dreams come true.
(Shared with me by a friend)

  3. My goodness, you really put in lots of outdoor labor hours in a short period of time.
    I too cannot wait to see all of your gorgeous plants in bloom. Isn't a joy working out in the yard?

  4. It is going to be beautiful! I don't know how you did it. I would be hurting all over too! I can't wait to see them.
