Spring Surprises

 When we first moved in, all of our neighbors told us how wonderful  Mrs. R (the cute old lady that owned our house before us) kept the gardens.  More than one person has told me that they love to drive past our house just to look at the pretty gardens.  What?! Our garden- our house? Where the flower beds look like this...

 Yes, those are fake flowers stuck into the pots and the ground.  And little ducks, hens, and Mary's all along the way.  Plus... See all that GRASS? The flower beds are FULL of grass. 

BUT recently, our grass-filled flower beds are starting to spring beautiful little purple flowers! And, the beginnings of what looks like daffidils and tulips! What a wonderful surprise! We can't wait to see how it will all look once fully bloomed!
