Cruising around Pinterest I have been seeing more and more gardening ideas popping up and it has gotten my Spring Fever all riled up.  Afterall it is the first of March, I think it would be appropriate to start at least thinking about doing some gardening.

I love the fencing they put around these raised beds.  Unfortunately there is not a good link to how they were made.  I might have to add that task to my hubby's list of
to-do's for this summer.  (I can just see the HUGE eye roll now.)

I absolutely adore this clematis all wound around this bird house.  It's making me giddy.  Here is the link to Funky Junk Interiors where she does a post about unique bird houses.

Next is this urn with lots of foliage spilling over the sides.  I love combinations like this that shows off the beautiful foliage.  You will find this post at The Decorated House.

Love this outdoor sink.  How handy would that be?  Hmmm, I wonder if I could keep it looking that cute?
You can find it at Country
And how about these old nesting boxes planted up with petunias?   Go to this site for lots of cute garden architecture and planter ideas.

In my mind I picture my yard looking like this is in the middle of July.  Unfortunately I have yet to achieve such exquisite beauty but that doesn't stop me from desiring it.

The simplicity of this shelf for these pots it SCREAMING at me to do something similar out my laundry room window.  It might make doing laundry a little more palatable don't you think?
Begonia's would do so well on that side of my house.
Chiot's Run blog is a really fun organic gardening site, you should check out her wonderful ideas.
Now if this post doesn't get your green thumb itching I don't know what will.
(If y'all are getting tired of my Pinterest posts please let me know.)

Not tired of your Pinterest posts - at all. I love that lush garden photo. It would be impossible to do here in our valley heat. The water bill would be outrageous, but a gal can dream. I also like the chicken nest box garden.

I am so so so ready for spring...just got about 3 more months before it gets to this part of the Rockies.
Last night, I was already "mentally" planning what I'm going to plant into my outdoor planters. Looks like we're on the same track here! Bring On Spring!

I love your garden pins. It makes me so ready for spring. But winter here has been a breeze, so I can't complain!!

They do inspire me on this cold and blowy/snowy day.
Looking forward to spring and there are some seriously great ideas here.

Thanks for sharing.

I've repinned a lot of those--mostly from you. ;-) You should make pins of your yard. It's so lovely.
