[Decorate Wednesday] - The Garden

Have you entered my Giveaway yet?  You have until August 17th to do so!

Its been a while since I posted pics of our garden.  I love gardening/farming and it is a big part of my life - not sure why I don't share it very often here on this blog.  But here we go please enjoy the pictures as you scroll through the page.  These pics were taken a couple weeks ago. 

 I got some anemone bulbs a couple years ago - but never planted them.  I decided to put them in this year if they bloomed then great - if not well I already wasted them because I didn't plant them anyways.  Here they are - most are red but I got a double purple and I love it!  only about 50% of them came up but I think that is pretty good odds.
