What a great weekend. I don't know when I've had more fun shoveling dirt and sticking things in the ground. The garden fortress is shaping up beautifully. The Mister is nearly finished hooking up the drip system that will keep everything watered without wasting a drop. He is amazing that way.
He makes great waffles too!
We gave the girls each a wooden whiskey barrel and let them have their pick of flowers to plant in them.
The results reflected their personalities to a tee. One chose soft pastels, wispy, ethereal, graceful.
The other went for bright, colorful, spicy.
Can you tell who belongs to who?
We'll also be planting things like squash and beans, but a little instant gratification is nice.
It wasn't all work though, we did manage to slip out for enchiladas one night and made strawberry sorbet. Yum. Goodbye crock pot. HELLO ice cream maker!
It's hard to leave this groovy party, but I will be taking a little blog break for the rest of the month.
I just have one more loose thread to tie up before I go.
The summer book give-away!
My goodness. Never knew there were so many of you lurking out there. Thank you all for stopping in and brightening my morning!
