New Garden Beds!

     Bill has been working away on three new raised beds in the back yard, and we're all ready filling them with the cold crops.  The third is hard to see way in the back, but they sure look pretty with some rich soil that we ordered and have in now.



As much as we both love to garden, Bill smiled all the while he was putting them in.


Just a few more pictures of the beds here.  Cabbage, Broccoli and different kinds of Lettuce are in now.  Also, a couple of rows of sugar peas.




A couple pictures also of my Hyacinths.  They smell so very good.  Wish the could last all season.





     It was a gorgeous day yesterday and we played outside a good part of the day in the gardens.  Moved a couple of plants to the back where they deer can't get them.  It was just a happy day.  Didn't need jackets at all.

     Stitching is coming along real well.  Here's an update of "Quaker Diamonds".  Colors are beautiful to say the least.  I'm really enjoying the stitch.  I'm using the colors called for in the hand dyed threads.



     I'm going to be in my stitching chair for a while.  I believe I hear those beautiful threads calling my name again.

     Until next time my sweet friends and followers.  Stay well and stay safe.  Love you all.  Don't forget to "feel those colors"!

    1. Planting is something wonderful to look forward to isn't it? We've really been blessed to wind up down here where we can get so much more gardening time in. Another foot of snow back up in NH as well.

    1. I was over at your blog the other day and I keep thinking about those pansies you've planted. Don't our hearts smile when we're in the gardens?
