So glad you popped on over for a visit today ;). This past week has been busy with everything and nothing….do you have weeks like that? I don’t feel like I got much done, but I don’t remember sitting and taking it easy either….
The weather has been nicer, although still not super warm for near the end of May. We did venture out to an Amish nursery last weekend and I had a heavenly time picking out all kinds of flowers and veggies! I really should have taken a photo of the trunk full of goodies, but I didn’t. I did however get some great pics of the surroundings!
I think this last photo should be a puzzle, don’t you agree?
Anyway, daughter helped me plant a lot of pots last weekend and, even though it’s mostly greens and not much flowers for now, they should all look beautiful pretty soon!
I also got my vegetable beds ready for planting and got the tomato plants in.
I have a lot of veggies to plant and have asked hubby for some additional raised beds. You may remember that this garden~ dubbed the Peter Rabbit Garden by me~ is just 2 years old this summer so it’s still a work in progress, but I am proud to be doing it all by myself ( well, other than the building of the wood surrounds for the raised beds). I’m also trying to use only found or free stuff in there, so all those rocks and edging stones came from somewhere else. It is a lot of work but I have a vision in my head and that is what I’m working towards…( on a side note: I read a very funny blurb somewhere that said husbands really don’t like it when their wives say:” I was thinking….” because it almost always means the husbands are going to end up doing some kind of work..hahahaha)
Speaking of visions, I believe it was even before we closed on this house that I had a vision in my brain of what I wanted our sun porch to look like. Here is the before:
( p.s. the way that the above picture was taken with a special lense makes the room look much deeper than it actually is)
Here is what it looks like today:
We painted it in 2 colors that make it feel so warm and cozy, and created a seating area and an eating area, as well as adding those cute little garden lights. It really is an additional room.
I am going to close with this pic….looks like a tornado swept through, doesn’t it?
It didn’t. But we do have a mama bunny nesting in that wood pile and our dogs like to go and “visit”. So we are trying to block them by barricading with lawn furniture. This has only been semi-successful and we sincerely hope that mama moves her babies into the Peter Rabbit garden instead, where they will be much less bothered by these two nut cases!
I do hope you are staying busy and enjoying some relaxing crafting time!
Until next time~ Stay safe, and happy creating!
