What Happened To My Black Sheep?

I can scarcely believe that another Friday is here.
Did your week whiz by?  Mine sure did.
It was a week with countless hours spent in the garden.
 I am so, so excited about this year's garden.
It's too soon for a tour, but as soon as everything gets established,
I will take you by the hand and walk you through every inch!
[so excited!!!!]

Almost every day I drive down the road to our closest greenhouse.
As I walk into the hoop houses filled with colorful plants,
I get a smile from the owner.
She chuckles a little... because just yesterday I told her I was finished.
This has happened every day this week.
"I swear... NOW I am finished!"
And back again the next day I go...
(and so on)


It's just that I keep coming up with more ideas for all of the little spaces
that have no color.
By mid-summer everything should be breathtaking.

I always have friends to watch over me!

It was a long, colorless winter... so I am just making up for those
monochromatic months of black and white.
This summer is going to be one of technicolor.
This summer I am celebrating.
I am throwing a garden party each and every day....
and you are invited!!

If I could just put these three to work weeding!  What?  You need thumbs?

Tell me......
