I am amazed that my garden is experiencing a miracle transformation with just 4 cans of blue spray paint for the chairs, some paving stones, garage sale finds and a lot of manual labor. Color has done wonders for the formerly green Adirondack chairs.

See the pavers under the fire pit? I want to buy more in time and put them under the swing. I am cutting my yard in half until this portion is completed.

Next is to recover the cushions in (hopefully) an old quilt...sort of shabby chic. The fire pit is a plant pit for my starter coleus cuttings right now.

Thanks Susie, I am liking it...it takes more $$ than I can give it right now....but still, It's a nice place to sit in the morning and evening. The other half of the yard still looks like a war zone. Hilarious!

These gazinnias are from last year and somehow not only survived but are much prettier this year!

Jim Kochran brought some great plants to the swap and I ended up with three small ones that are huge beauties now.

The sunflower is about 7' high! And the hyacinth is growing like a bean stock.

Yesterday I got the surprise of my gardening life with my first bright pink Hollyhock bloom! Today there are 3 and tomorrow I will take and post a photo.
My garden has changed since I posted the above photos....amazing what a little warm weather and H2o will do!

I have a push lawn mower and am planning to buy a weed eater for the funky areas. My grass is terrible right now....but the plants are growing great!

The snail vine was cut down to nothing in February and it's traveling across the swing now.
