Marissa's Green Thumb

Now that the weather in Michigan has been consistently above freezing at night for about two weeks I've enjoyed doing some gardening the last few days.

Today I planted a few hostas that my mother gave me from her garden and, with the help of my husband, lined the front of the flower bed with small native stones.

Front of our apartment.

I planted the tulip bulbs below last fall and was very pleased to see such beautiful flowers with so little maintenance!

And no flower bed would be complete without your favorite! Paul's favorite flowers are lily of the valley and today was the first time we saw our new lily of the valley blooms.
