Early spring pictures (lots of pics)

Nothing blooming, yet, but here's a few pictures of the garden and the view, from the garden...

This is from inside the house, but it shows most of the kitchen garden...and the horses :)

Here's the arbor, with some herbs from last winter...they should look a little better, in a few weeks

Here's a view out the back of the garden. The creek is still up a bit, but not like a month ago!

And, finally a few pictures of Spidey! I've mentioned him in a few posts, but this is the top of a little pergola, my mom got on clearance. The welds were in bad shape, so she kept the long pieces and used them as trellis, to grow vines up her deck. This is the top, which I'll paint black, as soon as it warms up. This is for my nephew's garden...picture beans and peas (maybe some climbing nasturtiums) on the 'legs' and a watermelon planted in between each one. It's different, but he's going to love it! LOL

Here's Spidey...

And here's Spidey, with Chance and Cordell (l-r) in the pasture, with Lucky in the back. The boys (Chance and Lucky) get bigger evey year! :)

I meant to the top pictuere, that's our girl, second horse from the left! Mandy is ALL better, after her upset stomach, a few months ago...thanks to everyone, who sent her good thoughts and best wishes! :)

Does anyone else want to add some pictures? It sounds like I'm not the only one having a late spring :)

RE: Early spring pictures (lots of pics)

Ok, I get what spidey is now!! Very neat and creative! Don't you love finding new ways to use things in the garden??! It will be a lot of fun for him getting to plant things around Spidey ;-) Plus I could see having a big Halloween party around it with fake cobwebs, bales of hay, and pumpkins for your nephews and nieces!

Glad to hear Mandy is doing well again- and back playing with her boys!

lass - Beautiful photos. What a gorgeous view. I'd love to sit in your swing with nice cup of tea and admire the view. Why not post pics again when everything is in bloom? I would love to see it. Thank you for sharing.

RE: Early spring pictures (lots of pics)

Oh ll your garden is so dreamy even tho it still looks chilly! I really like your spidey idea! Very cute. And those horses are so beautiful!

I just returned from Myrtle beach for a vaca and I have 2 pics from brook green gardens that might inspire you or others that like to garden with kiddos! I thought they'd be so fun!
