Spring has Arrived !!

There is a time for everything,and a season for every activity under heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 NIV

I am so thankful spring is here! I am not a winter person. It is wonderful to dig in the dirt. I will always be
a farm girl at heart..

I dressed Addie in her new spring clothes. She looks too sweet to frighten the birds away. They will all want to be her friend.  

I have been working in my garden. I planted two rows of blue lake bush beans, Kentucky wonder pole beans, zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes.

The doors on the Purple Martin house are open waiting for spring guests to arrive.

I found this shabby old box on the curb yesterday morning! I think it will look great with tomatoes and sunflowers planted in it. What do you think?

Here are a few pictures of what is growing and blooming in my back yard. Enjoy.....
