Spring! My yard and gardens!

I have spent every moment im able to outside working in my yard and gardens! I have also convinced the boys i want a washing line and after the ranting and raving on their part i guess complaining... I now have the makings of a clothes line all cut up and ready to be assembled and cemented into the ground.....YAY! I will post pictures in another blog! We relocated the fire pit and build/dug a new one! It is much bigger and looks lovely! Ive also tackled the one garden that is a sore spot in our backyard...and ive just let it run free with all its weeds....I tackled that garden today, it took me the WHOLE day to pull up all the evil violets.....and ferns....and other weeds..ok ok i know violets are not "weeds" technically but they grow like dandelions.... they are such a pain in the bum to get rid of! And the ferns yea i really know they arent weeds as well but when i first started in the garden i was like oh how pretty ill relocate these 3......yea ok 3 turned out to be 17....and i stopped saving the small ones and after i was done i tossed em out in the compost bin and ended up with 17 large ferns... So here are some pics of what i have been up to!

My tulips finally bloomed!

These are my neighbours tulips! They are stunning!

I am so glad the mole didnt kill my hosta's!

This is our "sore spot" garden in the backyard! It looks much nicer now :)
Here is a couple of the ferns that i dug up out of that messy garden above!
The old fire pit on the left which the grass seems to have taken off and is growing nicely! The new fire pit! We can not wait for the right weather to have friends over and roast marshmallows over it!
This little corner garden has Star Gazzerlillies in it as well as some cute lil pink/white/purple flowers i forget their names but we baught them at the local nursery down the road!
And this is one of our lastest outside pets...... There are 4 of these lil snakes...*shudder* this lil guy watched me while i pulled weeds in the garden he was so interested in wat i was doing... after he started gettin closer i threw lil weed bulbs near him till i chased him off to the side of the house!
