Gardening with Mr. Burrito

We got so lucky to have had two days of warm weather last week. Me and my son took the opportunity and prepped our vegetable garden. My hands got blisters because I used the heave maddock in digging out the dirt hehehe.
I decided to remove the grass adjacent to the fence so I could plant some veggies  in it instead of just plain grass.  I used the grass to  fill in some of the low parts of our yard.
My son was busy picking up all the earthworms he could find and give it to the birds.  
I love it that we have a fence now because I can wear anything and not worry about  the neighbors looking at me lol.
My yellow tree (not sure the name of this plant) has bloomed already.
I took shots of these pretty blooms when we went at my SIL's home the other day.
These hyacinth are blooming  beautifully at Dad's front yard.
My Spring flowers did not bloom this year.
Have a  blessed Sunday everyone!

  3. Hi, thanks for stopping by this morning. Some people do think of violets as weeds, but I LOVE them! Later their leaves fill in the spaces in my garden with heart shaped leaves, which I also like a lot. Your yellow bush seems to be a forsythia. Have a great week in the garden. ♥♫

  5. Your yellow bush is a forsythia, and the little purple flowers are called grape hyacinths.

    Worms mean you have healthy soil! Happy gardening.

  14. The sunny respite after weeks of snowstorms have afforded you and Mr. Burito to indulge in your favorite garden works. You tend to your garden as EJ kept on digging worms for the birds. Your yellow tree is simply fantastic so are the hyacinth in your FIL's garden. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
