Planning Flower Beds

 I have been getting lots of seed catalogs.
Before we know it spring will be here.

It has taken years to get my flower beds
planted with perennials.
The outside looks like a frozen tundra today!
I like to get to the greenhouses early to get
the big flowered geraniums.
They sell out fast.
I love the red begonias I planted in our
window box.  They are so easy to grow!

Last summer I redid my pond.
I completely dissembled it and
redid the whole thing.
It looks 10000 times better.
I put it in 20 years ago. 

I redid the rocks.

Love planting lots of petunias.
When I look outside in the winter, it
is a miracle all the plants grow back LOL!


  1. I love your garden photos!
    I love seeing my flower garden when it comes back!

  2. Beautiful garden. Looking forward to seeing more pics later on.

  3. Julie, your gardens and pond are so lovely. All your work is evident. The pictures are all gorgeous. Our growing season is very short. Takes half the summer for flowers to take off good. I love the big red geraniums too. Have a wonderful weekend dreaming of your gardens! Hugs, Lori

  4. Absolutely gorgeous garden. Spring can't come soon enough for me, I can't see the ground with all the snow.

  5. So beautiful and I bet a lot of work to get it looking so good!

    Wishing you gardening success!

  6. I am so glad I took pictures of summer when it is winter and nothing is growing.
    Your gardens are lovely and so is your pond. Your flowerbeds are just perfect. I bet they are buried under snow though, but I bet soon it will be spring.

  7. Oh you make me want to be outdoors in the garden. Such beautiful pictures. love red Geraniums and Petunias too. Blessings Francine.

  8. Please come to my gardens!! I need help. Yours are gorgeous and you have inspired me for my own.

  9. I've always been partial to red geraniums.
    Your gardens are just lovely. Do you have a problem with deer?
    Hugs :)

  10. What a lovely treat to look at your garden that will soon be growing again.
