The gardening marathon continues....from sun-up to sun-down!
I should have a video tour for you by the end of the week.
We'll call this one "Before" and then in a few weeks I will show you the "After".
I should have shown you the "Before Before"...
then you would be truly impressed.
The garden looks so much better now than it had in early Spring.
It was overgrown with weeds and really looking unkempt.
Now, however, it once again looks loved!
Yesterday's project was planting the pumpkin patch.
I planted two flats of pumpkin babies that I had started from seed,
as well as 40 tomato plants, 30 cabbages, and zinnias.
By the end of the week, I will have planted sunflowers more zinnias, and blue corn as well.
At that point I will be officially finished.
I also worked on the fairy garden yesterday....
A few new pieces were added...
a new covered bridge,
and a miniature Sadie dog (far right)...
(our beloved Bernese Mtn. dog who passed away last year)
The right half of the fairy garden...above.
The left half of the fairy garden...below.
Shhhh...don't wake the sleeping fairy....
I received a lot of comments yesterday about my overalls.
I wish I could say that I made them, but I did not.
They were a birthday present from Hubbs.
They are from a company called "Garden Girl" and they are the best overalls EVER!
Overalls are my daytime uniform these days.
They are perfect for chores and dressy enough to wear into town for errands.
I wish you could have watched these two yesterday.
It's springtime and that means mating season.
Even though these two are females,
they still exhibit a ritualistic mating behavior.
A lot of head butting and blubbering happening here...
This little display was completely one-sided.
Stella repeated the posturing over and over.
Audrey was totally unimpressed and safely hidden behind the hay feeder...
which took the brunt of the action.
Here is a sweet little video that shows how we end each day.
Not a bad way to end a day, huh?
