Looking forward to it!

Exciting! I'll try that next time. Sounds like fun!

Take lots of pictures!

Maybe you can get a family photo out there. (or at least just Erin)

I think I have the same problem, my friend. All of my plants die. Makes me so sad.
But, at least I have friends that can do it. And my Mom is a good gardener too. Here are some photos of her yard a few years ago:



And here's a little garden fairy that my sister gave her last year for Mother's Day. It lights up at night!

I love it too! She got it at Tuesday Morning. It didn't have a box or a label, so I don't know the manufacturer.

I don't know what kind of flowers they are but sure thought they were pretty.

Everyone's pictures are gorgeous !! I would have loved to show off my gardens, but all of my spring flowers and even my lilac bush (which smelled sooo wonderful this year) have all come and gone. I am now waiting on my summer sunflowers, lillies, cedum, and dahlia's to come into bloom.

I could show you the 3 needlepoint hollies we just planted to keep the crazy dog away from the lower corner of our yard, but well...they're boring and green in a bed a mulch...

The upper photo appears to be a sedum of some sort; the lower one either a rudbeckia or Echinacea ; I've never been able to tell those two apart.
