The other day, in the depths of this horrid, endless winter we're having, I noticed a little bit of purple lurking under a pile of oak leaves. I decided to go out and investigate today (and clean up a little) and found this! Proof positive that spring indeed IS coming!
I never planted crocuses in my garden. This one just appeared a few years ago. I figure a squirrel drug it up and dropped it and I am the lucky recipient! I love crocuses. I really should plant some more. They are such a nice happy sign of spring!
Hubby and I went out for a date night last night. We walked past a cute little garden shop. The had these little piggy planters. How cute are these? A few of these would make the cutest herb garden! I would LOVE one but at the moment I have no clue where I would put it. I just love garden art!
There is a spot on our beach where people balance rocks. They are not qiute Inuksuk but speak to that general idea. An inuksuk is Inuit stone sculpture of a "human" that tells you you are on the right path. I have always been fascinated by these.
I gathered a few stones off of the beach and brought them home.
I took a few and stacked them up and made myself a mini Inuksuk.

The trick to getting it to stand is picking flattish rocks. He stands about 15" high. I think he is a pretty cute piece of free DIY garden art. He is quite stable and only falls over about once a year.
If only I could figure out how to get the squirrels from burring acorns in my garden.
My hyacinth was completely burred under leaves and is a bit pale looking.
