Friday Shoot-Out~~~~~Gardens

This Friday shoot out theme is Gardens, Well here in Alaska our snow has just melted and it still freezes at night so we really don't have our gardens in the ground yet. So I went to the Nursery's for my shoot out.
This first picture is of me in my new gang member t-shirt, standing where our garden will be when it comes time for planting. Thanks to Reggie Girl I have my new shirt to make it official that I'm gang material.





















































This is how we keep our flower and veggies warm and growing in the greenhouses. Gotta do something in the great Northern state to keep our pretties alive and growing.
















For more shoot -out pictures take time and check out Reggie girls shoot out gang! Also we have a couple kind gang members that keep a running list of members you can check out their pretties. Try http://gingersflowers.blogspot.com/ you won't be sorry!

Ooooh! I just get so JEALOUS this time of year, don't you? I see all the beautiful flowers everywhere and people posting lovely spring pictures. Meanwhile, it's still freaking SNOWING right now outside. *sigh*

Good luck with your gardening!

It may take spring a little longer to reach your part of the world, but at least you can enjoy the greenhouses!

Doreen said...

awesome photos and love the T-shirt!! how cool! when does it get warm enough in Alaska to plant?

Robyn said...

Usually in June we can start our gardens. Usually start seeds indoors and transplant outside as soon as we can.

I bet you can't wait to start! Pretty shots of all the varieties of flowers and plants!

Gordon said...

Just the words "Kenai River" made your post the winner for me, because it brings back so many great memories. (My favorite fishing spot in AK) Your shots were great of the flowers and plants, but my favorite was the one with the walking staff. Thanks for a job well done.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

What a fun trip and I LOVE the pic of you and your new shirt! Too fun :)

J9 said...

That hanging basket of flowers is also in my backyard! Very cool to see that these things will grow almost anywhere!

Patty said...

I might be late but I am following you now.

Welcome to our town shoot outs.

I love what you did, especially showing us how you keep everything nice and cozy.

Nice photos and layout.

Have a wonderful Sunday.
