It’s so crisp outside…sometimes I think this delayed spring was worth it. Green things are popping up everywhere…lawns are being cut and everyone is mulching. Thanks to Den’s advance thinking and Edgar…our amazing lawn guy…we are trimmed and mulched and edged and really just having fun planting. We do have a weird area in the front where we took out a huge shrubbery thing. We took it out because my sister Paula said that it was blocking the front view of our house but now we have to decide what to do with the empty space. And our birch tree died and the tree in the way back yard fell over and was removed but that’s Den’s area of expertise and he will deal with the trees later. Right now our planting world consists of planting one pot at a time! Little baby steps of planting…but…the front…just the front where the door is…portico? That’s done! I do need a new door mat…and Den says we need a new light fixture…and that’s my old old wreath. The new one was way too attractive to the robin. Hopefully I can change them out soon! Imagine those windows on each side of the door covered in little postcards. Once those were covered the robin pecked on the window over the door! Then the robin went to Den’s study window. But now we think she is building under the decks again…the way she always did. Her old nests are still there!
I love lobelia…I try to stuff it everywhere! And my beloved basket…I don’t want to throw it away but it’s aging rapidly.
And my beautiful $15.00 Costco fern!
Only 99 more pots to go! Teasing…I am so excited to be so excited about planting. Last year I was so tired and drained that I just couldn’t care that much…sigh!
I am craving these sweet little sandwiches…aren’t they pretty? I wonder if I could make them for dinner?
The Barbara Delinsky…Before And Again…book was wonderful. I loved it. Now I am into these…ooooh…I made a slide show!
Den is playing golf and as soon as he gets home we are going on a plant finding adventure! Make way for more lobelia! Oh…Den and I both got these Allbirds…they are truly the most comfy shoes with perfect fit that I have ever bought. There isn’t any blistering break in time with these. It’s amazing. If you wear a 7 you buy a 7. And…they fit perfectly. I wanted a light color, too, and a slip on. I don’t understand their technology but I love these shoes!
