Busy, busy, busy and some Linky Love

This time of the year is my busiest season.  Today I'll (finally) finish planting the last of 45 or so shrubs.  I still have five pots to plant after completing about 20, which includes the hanging ones. 

I've been moving along on my creation of a "lower" patio next to the deck.  It's an area designed to be reminiscent of an enclosed French or Italian garden. 

So what did I do yesterday?  Headed to Fred Meyer and bought a whole bunch more stuff to plant.  I'm crazy!  I'll get busy with some pics of the current work.  Here's some from the beginning of tulip season.

Not to Miss: 

I LOVE good homemade onion soup.  Diann over at The Thrifty Groove has the best post ever on French Onion Soup.  Oh my - pictures, history, recipes, and a give-away.  Thanks, Diann...

Susan, over at Writing Straight From the Heart has some beautiful pictures of her lilaces.  She asks if we have lilacs where we live.  Why yes, I do.  I am the proud caretaker for about 150 lilac bushes.  Do you think I like lilacs?  

An excellent guest post from Amanda over at The Shabby Chic Cottage - On Balanced Blogging

Annnnnnnnnnnnd...Gina (The Shabby Chic Cottage)  is having an Etsy Sale.  Yahoo!

Have a nice weekend.
