My Garden this Month (plus Birchbox codes)

Bloomin' Marvelous. Gift Our In Full Bloom Box for Mother's Day

So I was going to not blog about anything today but then I saw my garden.  And the email from Birchbox about their new Limited Edition In Full Bloom box.
While my garden is definitely not in full bloom, it's getting there!  Hooray for sun and green instead of rain and wet dirt!

Anyhoo, Birchbox has their new Limited Edition box out.  It's $58 and has LOTS of stuff in it.

I'm  not really interested because, well, it's $58 and I've got the Glossybox Mother's Day Limited Edition coming.
CODES!  For subscribing use BB100 or SFBB100.  For purchases, use WELCOME20 or LETSGO20 for 20% off your purchases.  I couldn't get welcome20 to work for me but letsgo20 worked fine.

My garden is currently full of tulips.  Although, I don't know why but there are never *enough* tulips.  I always think "Oh, why did I only plant 5 in this spot.  I should have planted 20 at least!"  And then I remember how boring planting tulips is.

The above photo shows my favorite garden area.  It's not the best right now because nothing is blooming but I thought I'd post this so that later I can do a comparison of some kind.
This winter was actually pretty rough for my plants.  It got down to 10 degrees which is REALLY low for us.  Normally, I think it doesn't go much below 25 degrees and even then its for one day.
This year we had nearly two weeks of under 20 weather and my Zone 7 plants just couldn't take it.  Anything on the cusp of Zone 8 died.  I have lots of holes to fill now which is sad but also a little fun because I LOVE plant shopping.
