The Garden Beds Are Ready

I cannot believe this is what the back yard looked like a few weeks ago. So horrible.

Now is looks like this. We finally finished the garden beds. We had to redo our main one with new wood this year and we created two more for cucumbers and zucchini. Cannot wait to plant our veggies.  We have to wait another week to plant in our area.

We also were able to repair our wood fence, but have not been able to pressure wash it because of all the rain we have been having. This week our saucer peonies started to bloom and they are so pretty this year.

What have you all been up to?


  1. Wow your yard looks amazing, Betty!! So green and lush! Can't wait to see the garden beds planted. My peonies are up but no buds yet, it's too early. I have some that are in their 4th year this year and have yet to bloom....hopefully this will be the year!

  2. What a difference a couple of weeks makes in a spring garden. Your Saucer Peonies are gorgeous, Betty. You will have baskets of veggies to pick this fabulous!

  3. You guys have done a ton of work, and it looks fantastic!!
    Love those peonies!
    I have some Japanese peonies that are blooming, but our old fashioned peonies have not started to bloom yet...I do hope they bloom though, as we 'rescued' them from a peony hater that had mowed over them!
    This will be the 3rd year, so I am hopeful that they will bloom profusely.
    Wishing you a happy day.

  4. Wow, what a transformation! It looks awesome!

  5. It really does look beautiful and what a lovely shade of pink in the peonies! Love this nice Spring weather for being outside. We have knock out roses blooming like crazy!

  6. Wow, what a lovely yard! I can't believe the difference. I have to say, you have quite a green thumb. I am a little green. ;)

  7. Your peonies are gorgeous and I love that you have your garden beds nicely prepped for planting. Such a pretty green garden!

  8. Your backyard looks great, Betty. So green and pretty. I love the look of your blog and really like seeing your lovely, smiling face. Very nice. Hugs, Nancy

  9. Hi Betty, I've been working in the garden too , there's so much to do this time of year . With Steve being sick and so fatigued from the chemo I'm trying to do it all by myself , so far so good . It does make me pretty tired when evening comes but I sleep like a rock . Your yard looks beautiful all your hard work really shows . Thank you so much for your prayers we appreciate them and are forever grateful .

  10. Such a lovely yard. Your peonies are gorgeous. They were my late mom's favorite flower. We just moved into a new (to us) home and we are enjoying planting flowers and shrubs that are favorites of ours.

    1. We are going to be selling the home in a couple of years and I will be starting over with flowers and shrubs at the new home. I have told Hubby there are a few plants I want to take and the saucer peony is on of them.
