Just when I thought Spring had bypassed us
we got some warm weather~
and some rain.
Both work wonders for plants.
And, my friends, that is what I have been doing.
And planting and planting and planting
and I am just about planted out.
Want to see?
Here is a general overall of the back yard.
Here a few little closeups.
Ring of hostas around the tree.
I planted these 2 years ago and each one just had
a couple of leaves.
This urn is heavily shaded and it is hard
to keep anything alive there.
Ya can't kill a hosta (can you?;>)
Did you know I have an outside soaker tub?
When the kids are done playing outside
they can pop in here and take a bath.
It's plumbed with hot and cold running water.
The arch has been over it for a couple of years.
This year I added planter boxes and
zip-tied two wire dividers together.
There is ivy planted beside the hostas that
should scramble up to give more coverage.
I will also clip a curtain to it with clothes pins
for more privacy.
This sits in an outside alcove off the master bath.
And this is "my girls" window box on the dining room deck.
See the miniature rose AND the heart shaped rock.
Gotta love those girls!
And LOOKY HERE!
Do you think I am one of those people
that keep their
up year round?
Do I look crazy to you?
Don't answer that question.
Nope-but now it sits all wonky!
When I went to take it down in early Spring
I startled a Mama Bird.
She is still there and I don't dare move it
until I know the babies are gone!
Guess we MIGHT have Christmas in July this year!
So...more to show you but
I didn't want to bore you
too much all in one day.
Also, we worked on my daughter's
new house all day Sunday.
I will be posting some pictures of that this week.
Bear with me as I try to catch up on my visiting.
It has been a CRAZY few weeks.
Seriously - crazy.
My husband says I am driving HIM crazy
cuz I just keep going.
Guess what? I have something
just for him.
It's a custom made straight jacket.
Lucky for him.
It should be here any day now.
Bet he gets over "crazy" fast
when he sees that little number!
