October Baby

Went to see this movie – EXCELLENT! Saw it with our teens and gave us all much to think about…. We all laughed and cried. (O.K. – Jeff didn’t cry).

Spring Has Sprung

Yes! It is finally beginning to warm up… well the flowers at least are coming up. I’m not really sure what happened to winter, it never got extremely cold. Last year we added two boxes for Lo’s garden and made changes all around the yard. Our yard is definitely what you would call a “work in progress.” =D

In many respects, this year is no different from any other…

Making plans for the vegetable garden, how to get big juicy tomatoes and blueberries whilst “accidentally” killing the beets and turnips. hehehe

Pruning our front bushes… Growing our own plants, from our own plants! 🙂 yes.. you should be confused! This year, we founds some baby Japanese Maple sprouts from our tree and are growing a new tree.

And so forth…  we even made a new box this year

After visiting a friend from church and getting a tour of her beautiful gardens, we decided to turn our old play house into a potting shed! So I invite you to look at the beginnings of our new potting shed. A place to keep tools and supplies… and have a blast decorating!
