Oh so much rain lately! Though it's hard for the kids - they don't get outside as much as they would like ( and I would like!), the constant downpours have brought the garden ALIVE!!
Between the showers this weekend, I managed to work through all of my perennial beds, trimming, edging and weeding.
Littlest man got in the action, too.
Who needs a hoe when you've got a front-end loader??
Wherever I go, my camera isn't fair behind. So, even as I dug through my gardens, I took some of prettiest things in our yard this week.
|Pink: 2 types of peonies given to me by my hubby for Mother's Day, an annual in my newest hanging baskets and my lovely pink lupin (this plant has never bloomed before!!)|
|Purple and White: Petunias, stawberry blossoms and my gigantic purple lupin|
|And Some Green: English ivy gradually making its way up our fence, my new Welcome sign, Froggy's little birdbath with my palest clematis in behind and a row of hostas, sedum and shasta daisies|
I took a run across the border to the outlet mall near Buffalo one day last week. I had tons of things on my list that I wanted to find at Target and Big K (we don't have those stores here in Canada). Luckily I was able to scratch "doormat" off of my list. In fact - I came home with 2!! After all I have a front door and a back door!
This is the lovely natural-fibred one on the deck out back:
