More signs of Spring & early Mother's Day

Today we spent more time outside enjoying the sunshine. I picked up some annual bedding plants first thing in the morning from VanderGiessen's nursery while with my sis-in-law...the amazing flower/plant expert in my life!

When we were finished, I met Jason at True Value to pick out my Mother's Day basket. I was thrilled that this is what he wanted to get me. I love having a basket hanging on the front porch and I didn't really need anything else.

I was ready to get outside and start perking up the yard a little more. Here's what I accomplished:

My hanging basket up and looking great!
I purchased alyssum and lobelia to put around my fountain by the front porch
Here's the view of the entire thing.
I have mums planted in my planters by the front of the garage and added some lobelia and yellow million bells to them for some color this spring and summer.
And then, while walking around the yard we noticed that the apple trees are getting flower blossoms!!

I don't know what makes me prouder.. that it looks so nice, or that you used the NAMES of all the plants in your post! ;-)
