Green in the Garden

Today was a great day to work in my garden! The sun was shining and the temperature was just right! The weather here still hasn't decided if it's spring yet. Crazy......100
degrees last week and 4o degrees this week! Needless to say my garden is just a little confused too!

I really don't have a lot in bloom yet however, I am enjoying all of the green. There is just something calming about all of the green. A promise of what is to come.......
