The Gerber's are here! The Gerber's are here!

Or What's going on in my garden! I just had to show these to you.

I am not much of a gardener, however my husband has a pretty green thumb!

A couple of years ago he built me a beautiful raised flower bed.
Filled with compost and planting soil. It took him several weekends. He's a keeper! Thanks Sweetie! I still love my birthday present!

Since then... I have had several failed experiments. But some successes too. We planted zucchini last weekend and JOY OF JOYS! It is sprouting this week! I'm just beside myself. Now if only I liked zucchini.... LOL! :) Any good recipes out there?

Look! I even had a visitor while I was weeding. Hello Grasshopper!

Is gardening an empty nest thing?

I don't know but it sure is rewarding to eat something that you harvested!

Such pretty flowers! How sweet that your husband gardens. I love it when David gardens with me. Thanks so much for visiting our blog. I am not as good at getting around to other blogs as Chasity is, but I am learning! Warmly, Debbie, another wild raspberry sister

Your Gerber's and your pictures are gorgeous!! (my hubby has the green thumb here too) but isn't it sweet that we can reap the benefits of their green thumbs? LOL he makes me stay away when he's planting, says I kill everything I touch. lol!! Yours are beautiful. Have a sweet day!

What a sweet hubby! You don't like zucchini? Well, I'm sure by the end of summer you will, because you are going to get tons of it!! My favorite flower is the Gerber daisy! Enjoyed the colors and the little grasshoper!!!

Your Gerber daisies are so beautiful! They are happy flowers. I hope your zucchini does well. Do you like zucchini bread? It's yummy.

I hope that little grasshopper doesn't turn out to be your enemy when he gets big.
