Spring is in the Air!

I love spring!!! Pretty things start growing out of the ground, the air starts to warm up, and I start to feel this strange urge to play in the dirt. :)

Butter cups are blooming.

Roses are budding.

I'm so not a gazing ball kind of girl, but when I saw this particular ball and this particular stand, I thought they were so pretty and had to have them. I bought them shortly after my bday with some of the money I got.
Saturday morning and this morning Reagan took nice long naps so I was able to get out in the flower beds and do some work. It was nice out Saturday, but even nicer today. It is 76 degrees right now! I actually broke a sweat out there. All of my beds are now weeded and planted. I put out seeds for zinnias in the back and a couple of other kinds of seeds in the other beds. As for the bulbs, I added more gladiolus to the front bed Saturday. When I went out to that bed this morning, there was a large hole right where I'd put in some of the bulbs. All around the hole were big'ole dog tracks and a couple of feet away was the outside of a bulb. Silly people and their dogs they don't lock up at night. :/ Fortunately, I think most of the bulbs were still there, so maybe he only at the one. Wonder if they will have a gladiolus pop up in there yard somewhere... :)
Another fun thing happened today. There are lots of little lizards around here. When I went to get the water hose I noticed one on it. As I unwound it I found another, and another, and another, and another. At least five little lizards were all hidden in between the hose. They didn't seem too happy when I unwound their little home.
Here are some pictures of what my flower beds look like right now. I will try to give some updates throughout the spring and summer of what they look like as the flowers grow in!

P.S. Stay tuned! I've got a very exciting Reagan update I'll try to post later. Hint: There will be a video and she will be on the floor doing something new! :)
