See You Next Week!

I know there won't be time tomorrow so I'll leave with a brief garden tour (you'll be amazed at what will be blooming two weeks from now!) and introduce you to a new little family friend.

This is Freckles! She's a 12 week old Red Heeler pup that belongs to DD's friend. She's been hanging out with us a lot and is the sweetest, wiggliest, lickiest pup ever! She runs and plays with the big dogs until she just wears herself out.

Here are my perennial beds as of June 2nd.

The first tulip finally bloomed! Hope the squirrels didn't eat the rest of the bulbs.

One of my favorite groundcovers.

Bleeding hearts are getting ready to bloom!

Here's one of three window boxes I made for grandma Clara's windows for Mother's Day. She enjoys them from her bedroom and the kitchen windows.

I transplanted these woodland violets from a very shady spot and now they are thriving in a different bed. But they've all come up white...nary a violet or purple to be found. The Mountain Bluet should be just starting to bud when I return next week. And yep, Those are old horseshoes from DDs boys edging the beds. A few more years and they'll go all the way around.

I don't know what this flower is called. I bought the plant for the window box because of it's foliage...but these lipstick red flowers are an added bonus.

CBM, Marie, Rachel....I'll see you in San Francisco!

Beautiful garden! I hope Little Miss Freckles doesn't like to dig when she comes over to visit!

I love Miss Freckles! She's obviously a confident little Red Heeler. They are so smart but they definitely need a fulltime job. I showed Belle her picture and she said, "Nice ears."

I think that vine is a Cypress Vine or Cardinal Vine. They are pretty, they also drop seeds like mad and you will have tons of seedlings coming up everywhere next year. My hummers love the flowers.

Have fun! I would be even more jealous if I didn't know we will be meeting up in October.

The garden and the dog are amazing. The dog is cute. I love the garden. It looks so relaxing. Sometimes I can't wait to get my own place.

I hope you have a wonderful trip and fun meeting up with fellow bloggers. Your flowers are beautiful... and freckles... I love her. What a cutie she is. But then again all doggies are cutie to me.
