First Blooms of 2017

In the first week of the year, we had a freeze. That freeze killed almost the rest of my beautiful Summer flowers. After three weeks, I was tired looking at shades of grey, beige, and brown. Before I went to the grocery store, I stopped at the nursery to look at some flowers and herbs, yesterday. Originally I wanted to go there for more seeds. But the colors of the pansies and violas struck my eyes. I had to get some cool weather annuals.

After the groceries were put away, I’ve got my plants and started gardening. I cut back the perennials, in hope they will come back this Summer again. Since, we have a little fairy house, and it looked all sad through the grey-in-grey, I worked it into the garden scene. The weather was perfect. The sun was shining, but it wasn’t hot. It was a great day to work in the frontyard.

Now, it looks like a little fairy garden again. A little gnome is the housekeeper. He makes sure, that nobody messes with the fairy house, while the fairies are out. He also let’s me know, when the plants need water. ๐Ÿ˜‰
