Yesterday was my last day off til Sunday May 27th -- seems like forever til me next day off, so I had a list a mile long to complete -- I did not get it all done, but I got a lot done, so I very happy. I have been collecting plants from various plant sales and from the garden center - so they were filling up our snowmobile trailer - first project get everything planted! I planted some of Dear Hubby's tomato and pepper plants - I think we are up to about 35 tomato plants and 12 pepper plants -- then I planted the herbs in our planting box Dear Hubby made a few years ago, then to get the flowers planted - this took the most time.
Here is my Fresh Flower box I had gotten at a church garage sale -- it does look a bit sparse but those petunias will fill in nicely.
This was a big project, cleaning up the bird/butterfly garden, I had lots of weeds, so I tilled it and then planted some of my daisys that I started from seed this winter and a new butterfly bush along with some pansys that I moved from the front. And a few impatiens in the bottom of the bird bath -- then went to the towns Free Mulch pile and brought some mulch home and put that down. Looks so much better and the birds are enjoying.
I had already planted the flower boxes on our front porch and they are looking really nice, my front theme is Red White and Blue - I also painted my little tables for the front red and I have blue paint for some planters for the from (blue) but I did not get those done yesterday so I hope to get those planted either before or after work this week.
I did weed the side of the house and split up some coneflowers and of course had the dogs out with me, and they discovered a bunny nest -- I bunny did not survive but the other on is doing well and a full recovery is expected and after that little mis-hap the dogs went back inside "in jail" for an hour to think about their crime.
Another exciting thing happened yesterday when we were outside we saw 2 eagles soaring overhead, it was just AWESOME! My dad loved Eagles - I really felt like he was right there next to me when they were flying over.
Yes the snowmobile trailer is empty! So a good day -- but still lots to do before Memorial day weekend.
I did step foot into my sewing room and looked around and planned to be up yesterday afternoon, but it never happened, I had to mow and trim the yard. So I started working at 7:30 yesterday morning and was drying dished and putting them away at 8:45 PM last night -- glad to be able to go back to work today and rest up a bit!!!
Happy Stitches and Gardening!
