New windows and clean siding!

We have half the windows replaced with new ones. Vinyl-Pro did an awesome job...I have the other half of the house ordered. It was so nice this weekend..Mike and I decided to power-wash the house, before the new windows come in. 
 Ernesto stopped by to give some of my divided plants a new home in Green Bay.  Another garden reaps the rewards of my perennials.

Just Picked Lilacs

I finally got enough lilac's to be able to pick some and bring them into the house. Oh, I love the smell of these. I planted 5 different colors. One tree didn't make it. These are the whites one...which are always the first to bloom.

Mother's Day 2010

This year our focus was the front yard of Mom's yard for her Mother's Day Gift. We purchased a white flowering crab apple tree. Garry made some frames out of some landscaping timbers to match the flowerbed located in front of the house. We decided to center the two boxes which meant we had to re-locate one that had been used for a birdbath. With both boxes in...we planted one with the tree...and the other with her hanging bird feeders. I planted some black-eyed Susan's below them.We will add mulch at a later date.

Edgewood Hostas 2010

Edgewood Hostas
W2784 County Road JJ Kaukauna, WI

Still my favorite little home based greenhouse. I would love to do this full time and quit my job....but what would I do in the winter? I need to move to a fair weather climate year round and open "Ann's Garden Path" for real.  

She even supplied me some badly needed pots for my plant sale. Thanks again, Patty. Paula and I enjoy our visit with you every year.

First trip this season to Honeymoon Acres

Still my favorite greenhouse (Honeymoon Acres) to get my coleus that I use in most of my planters. My plant of choice because very little care is needed to get impressive results. I really like this pictues, the hanging baskets reminded me of the sky covering the plants below.
This colorful guy tried to grab my camera...I think he was camera shy, or maybe he didn't think he could compete with the blooms. 
 I love all the colors....combos..and scents....eye candy for the soul!
