First some pictures of the house and garden. I really don't have a lot of really good pics of the garden but I did snap some yesterday. I will work on getting some better ones.
We had about 3 weeks of almost non stop rain and when it did slow down some and the sun would pop out it made a tremendous amount of grass pop up in the garden. So for Mother's Day I asked for and received a mini rototiller. My sweet DH spent most of Mother's Day tilling the garden for me to try to get out all the grass.
The yard behind him is not our yard, the neighbors next to us are not very tidy and don't have their yard mowed very often and its a ugly nuisance. I did try my hand at using the little tiller too.
We also have a lot of children in our neighborhood and they like to come over and hang out with us and they are always wanting to help us. Dan put them to work picking up some rocks out of the garden.
If I start to feeling a little better I will take some more pics of the garden. Its really starting to grow. I have about 12 different tomato plants, cucumbers, yellow squash, zucchini, white squash. I have sugar snap peas, pole beans, red potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage. We have white radishes and green onions and okra is starting to sprout. I have strawberry plants, blueberry plant, and several different herbs. I also have watermelon plants and cantaloupe. I have ornamental gourds, birdhouse gourds, and mammoth sunflowers.
So now you know where most of my free time is being spent. Next are some pictures of the flowers I have around the house.
This is my front porch. Its mostly shady most of the day and has my ferns on it. We have vinyl siding so the hub stretched the red cable across there for me to hang the ferns and the hummingbird feeder. I love to sit on the porch and look out at my flower beds.
Kitty likes to hang out there too. My inpatients have just started to grow and will be thick soon.
The next pictures are some of my plants by the deck steps.
So this is my world lately. I am going to try to do a little art today while I am taking it easy and hope to post some of it tomorrow. I did do a tag swap with my friend Jane from NY a few weeks ago. And here are some pictures of the tags I made.
I hope every one has a wonderful friday. I will post some more tomorrow!
