Happy Sunday! I told you all about my plans yesterday to head back to our old town to go to a birthday party. Well, Emmy and I went yard saling (and yes, we scored some great finds I will have to share later!), went to her school to buy herbs and a butterfly bush at their plant sale, and then to Sawyer’s soccer game. Well, somewhere in there, my car’s emission light came on. So, no party. We had to take the car into the shop, and will hopefully have it back Monday. Instead of being bummed about it, we made lemonade out of lemons. Both kids helped me plant our new plants, do some weeding, and I also hauled out a special surprise for them which will be a summer project. (More on that later).
So we still had a great day, and since I worked outside I thought I’d share some pictures of our garden. I am so thrilled that this house came with 7, yes 7, clumps of peonies that are just starting to bloom!
Here is a view of the whole garden area…
And heading down the hill…
And here is the new herb area, with a special fella Emmy and I found at Homegoods to oversee it. 🙂 We also planted Sawyer’s broccoli plant he got from his agriculture field trip.
Aside from the peonies, we also inherited a gargantuan Russian Sage. Anyone need any- we’ve got plenty!
Even though we missed the party and are going to have to fork over money for car repairs, we made it a good day and spent time as a family outside.
Now, time for one of my favorite link parties from one of my favorite blogs! You guys know I love partying with Lisa for her Before and After parties!
Well, this month is super busy for me and I don’t know that I will accomplish much. I did just pick up a dresser for my own room. It is huge, and really cool! Sorry for the cruddy cell phone night time picture, but hopefully you will get the idea…
So discuss amongst yourselves and then leave me comments. You guys are always there to help when I ask and I really appreciate it!
