Fort Pansy

We cleaned out our raised beds and decided to devote the lower bed to seasonal flowers. The upper bed will be for tomatoes and such, as usual. Here is my first creation, which I have dubbed "Fort Pansy"...we are very happy to have color and blooming plants in our lives again after a rather monochromatic winter!

Building materials for the fort...
State of the art equipment
Initial construction
The Song Sparrow approves!







The tulip "tower" in the middle...added a day later

 Mama Squirrel looks on with interest...I suspect we will have Sunflowers cropping up in our garden patch again this year, lol.
I think it is a cute little fort...if only all "forts" were constructed this way...

It is definitely springtime in your neck of the woods. It's still kind of cold here, no leaves, no buds yet. *sigh*. Spring WILL come soon. Your tulips are lovely. It's probably still too cold even in your area for geraniums outside. No doubt yours is looking forward to being outside again.

Forts containing flowers. Great idea.
