I'm Not A Fan Of Garden Gloves

Yes...that's right, I would rather go without gloves while working in the yard planting all my flowers...I guess I like playing in the DIRT! Most women my age are all concern about their nails...not me...I have never been big on the nail thing...it's just not for me...so when I work in my flower beds, you will find me without those pretty gloves (I have some...I just don't wear them). So on with the post...I have been a planting FOOL for the last two weeks...I have lost count on how many new plants and trees I have planted...I always buy way too many...I just can't stop myself...I want all of them! I hope I have passed on the passion for gardening to my two daughters...my mom passed it on to me and I'm hoping it continues on. Hope you all have a beautiful day!

Beautiful...I love the way it looks. I wish I could do that, but I can't keep anything alive.

Cathy said...

I love all your flower pots. Things aren't quite that far along here yet. I'm with you, I just like to get dirty. I rarely wear gloves. Love & blessings from NC!

Angie said...

Oh, I am jealous and wish all these gorgeous flowers were in my yard! Love the geraniums in the bucket hanging on the fence.

Erin @ I Heart New England said...

Gorgeous flowers!! I'm the exact same way-- I hate gardening gloves! I love feeling the cold, fresh earth between my fingers ♥

Jenny said...

Gorgeous flowers! You need to come to my house and spruce up the outside a bit! Lovely!

Shannon @ Posh Pieces said...

I am not a garden glove person either. Love the flowers!

Sylvia said...

Love the beautiful plants. This is my first time to visit your blog but I will be back. My husband and I are originally from SE Alabama currently transplanted to the Pacific Northwest. Longing to return to God's country.
I would make one suggestion... replace that Auburn flag with a Crimson Tide one and your yard will be perfect :-).

Mama Thompson said...

Gorgeous...gorgeous...and amen on the no glove thing.

Popcorn Served Daily said...

Your hydrangeas had me at hello.....

Kristi said...

Beautiful! I've been working on a few containers too. Today though, I've got to work on my mailbox flower bed... pesky Bermuda grass!!! I don't wear gloves either. I love the feel of the Earth in my hands. Have a great day!

Oh my gosh Linda, you have your garden looking so beautiful!
I hate garden gloves too and my nails and hands prove it. Of course,everytime I do my nails, I end up with paint all over them! LOL!

hugs

Linda said...

I love all your beautiful flowers, especially the window boxes...hugs, Linda

the momma said...

Had to click over just because of your title--I'm not a glove gal, either!!! :0) IMO, you lose something in the planting when you can't feel the dirt...
Beautiful plants!

Brenda said...

Your flowers all look beautiful. I have not potted anything yet it is a little too early here. But I think I might get some pansies this weekend and pot up my wire basket.

Jess said...

These are sooo pretty! I am going to work on my flower beds today. :)

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

Those are so pretty. I'm like you. Those garden gloves just get in the way. My nails are a disaster. Everything looks so gorgeous.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Everything is so pretty. I love all of your pretty planters. I don't do gloves either and my nails show it. lol Hugs, Marty

Stacey said...

Linda, your flowers already look so pretty! Be sure and show them again as they grow in the pots.

I am a plant fiend too. Never can get enough but I do have to wear gloves. I have some that have rubbery hands and they fit closely so it's easy to grip things. BTW, be sure to visit Daisy Cottage today. She has a tour of a person's home and gardens that is so much fun!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my bedroom. :)

Claudia said...

Looks so pretty in the garden! I sometimes don't wear gloves, and for the first time I got an infection in my finger after I yanked a weed! It was the strangest thing - I had to go on antibiotics!

Creations By Cindy said...

Linda, everything is so beautiful, fresh and just appealing! Be blessed. Cindy

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Your flowers are gorgeous, Linda! I can't wait until we can plant and not worry about the last freeze. I love the idea you have with flowers hanging on the trees. Can I ask what you used to do that? The yellow, pink and purple petunias look fantastic overflowing that stand!

Beverly said...

You've done some beautiful planting. Mine has been done since before Easter, except my window boxes. I just never seem to get around to them. I have the cocoa mats, and the containters hungs, just nothing in them. Yours have really inspired me. It's raining, but when it clears up, I am heading to Lowes. Thanks.

Gorgeous! I love all the pretty colors!!

I know what ya mean about the gloves. I wear mine if they're nearby. Otherwise, I love to play in the dirt!

Sylvia (at) Lily's Pad and Petals said...

I'm with you - no gloves.
Your plants are beautiful.

Debbie said...

You have a beautiful garden going on Linda, so early on in the season too!~ I am not a fan of garden gloves either, like getting my hands dirty!

Gay Vaughan said...

Just popping to check things out Linda, and not only do I like the flowers...but your blog! I like the new clean look! Thinking of making some changes myself.

Leslie, the Home Maker said...

I love your colorful yard!
WOWOWOWOW!
If you lived here in SC where the "dirt" you had was clay-- ew-- you'd wear gloves, I think ;)
I grew up in FL, and the dirt there was glorious for digging in. Not here.
Anyway--lucky you with "normal" dirt.
Thank you so much for coming by my home and the sweet thoughts you had about my room. They made me smile, see: :D

Prior said...

I don't wear the gloves either, but I did see a bunch decorating the pickets on a fence and that was darling... Your flowers look wonderful! Lezlee

Pamela said...

Love your window boxes!!

Marsha's Mpressions said...

Love your flower baskets! They are so lush and hearty looking! You must really use a good fertilizer!

luna miranda said...

beautiful blooms! i am not much of a gardener but i'd enjoy playing with dirt, too.:p

grey like snuffie said...

I love the cheery red Verbena. So many spots of color in your yard. Doesn't Spring just bring you so much joy?

Love Bears All Things said...

Very pretty. I use gloves when I remember to put them on. My Mother never did.

Shellbelle said...

You have been a planting fool and the beauty you shared with us today proves that! Splendid!

I'm so with you on the gardening glove thing, isn't that why we have nail brushes? I want to feel the earth in my hands when I garden and the sand in my toes when I'm at the beach!

Ms. Bake-it said...

You have definitely been busy! All your plants and containers look fabulous. I am with you about the gloves. I am a tactile person and want/need to feel the earth in my hands. If I know I have to go someplace later on the same day I am playing in the dirt, I simply scrape my nails lightly over a bar of soap so it will prevent the dirt from getting under my nails thus, making it easier to clean them when I am done playing.

The Garden Bell said...

Nothing like a little dirt under your nails. I'm a new follower. Loved every minute of my visit in your stunning garden.

Off to find my nail brush,

Kate - The Garden Bell
