Weeds

Spring is definitely here. Finally!!! But just look. The weeds are just everywhere. I have to confess a real hang-up of mine. I hate to get my hands dirty. I don't know why but I always have. I don't like to dig in the dirt. I don't like to touch meat. I just don't like for my hands to be dirty. I know -- weird. But, with all that said, this is the first house we have ever lived in with wonderful landscaping. I love what they have done with all the beds. So, I'm going to put on my big girl pants and get out in those flower beds and pull those weeds. I can do it!!

This beautiful plant is around the corner from "the weeds". I have to tell you that I think this is about the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. They are climbing up the antenna beside
the house. They bloom all summer.



















Thanks for stopping by. Happy Quilting!

hmmm, well the weeds are gone and mulch put down but I know a certain quilter who did NOT get her hands dirty! ;)

I love the dirt but don't at all enjoy the dirty hands in the kitchen. Donna your place sounds lovely. I really enjoy reading your blog!

Hmmm, Donna - sounds like someone is getting back at you!
Your plant and the blooms are just glorious - won't it be lovely if you have blooms all summer.

Best wishes - Lurline.

I like to sit on the patio and watch my husband do the yard work!

Love the Clematis vines! Beautiful!! I have two in the yard, but they don't have that much blooms on them.

Thank you for dropping by my blog! You are in the drawing. Good luck!
