Plants and Pots

The weather is all spring like.  One minute it is sunshine and birds chirping, then the wind comes up, and the next thing you know we have a spring shower.
I had a chance in between the changing weather patterns to plant some spring flowers and get my pots all cleaned up and ready to go.

When I was out shopping with the family this weekend, I ran across something that was not exactly potting material, but a must have ;)

For my readers in town, I found these adorable chintz trowels at...wait for it....Ranch and Home, and they have matching hand rakes and pruners!

Here is my final decision on my roses.  I placed my order today! 

This is a David Austin English Rose

Lady of the Mist ( I am on a waiting list for this one)
English Legend Rose
English Heirloom Rose
Hybrid Tea Rose

Oophs I guess I did go over my limit of only 3.  April in Paris is to replace another rose I lost over the winter, Pristine.

Easy Does It, is for a  back up in case I don't get Lady of the Mist.

Looks like you will have some beautiful roses! It's not quite time to put in our annuals yet..."they" say after tax day. The wind has been amazing here. I always enjoy a visit to your blog.

My, oh, my! Chintz trowels! Where did you find those?! They're adorable. :)

Roses are kinda like Lays potato chips, bet you can't order just one, or even three, lol!

I'm your 'over the limit' rose order. Oh...and the most practical garden trowel makes me smile as well.

Those trowels look so Cath Kidstone...very nice. One should be fashionable in the garden if one spends as much time there as you do. Hope that Lady of the Mist comes through for you...she's lovely!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I wish, wish, wish I lived near to you. I'd have you for dinner so that you would bring me roses from your garden. Sooooo very beautiful!
