Beautiful Morning

It’s another gorgeous morning and I couldn’t resist taking some photos of the yard. I wish you could smell the fragrance in the air. Between the smell of the honeysuckle, hospital combined with the magnolia, it’s heavenly.

The flowers along the stone wall are in full bloom right now. I wish they would stay that way all summer.

We have been involved in so many projects around the house, we had to put trimming the yard on hold for a while. One of the biggest trimming jobs my husband has is trimming all of the burning bushes. With all of the rain we have had, they grew together in the middle, so there was no way of walking through them to go up or down the flagstone steps that lead to the second level of our yard.  Bill cut an arch as best he could for now. I told him it looks like a bell. He said he had to cut it that way, until it fills in more and then he can shape it more like an arch.

We have a lot of shade on our property, so it’s hard to find the right spot to grow a vegetable garden. This is our first attempt at growing more then 3 tomato plants. Next year we’ll enlarge it, but with everything else that needs to get done, this little garden will have to do for now. I have to say that I do enjoy tending it. It’s so fun coming out in the early morning to see how everything is growing.

So that’s it for now. Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day weekend. Don’t forget to fly your flag, and remember out wonderful soldiers that have died for our freedoms, and the ones that are right now still fighting for them.

Happy day

    I too have a lot of shade in my yard so I can grow only a handful of vegies. Of course one of them is tomatoes. I am trying my hand with heirloom. I hear they can be difficult but we’ll see. Another vegie I’m trying is different types of lettuce. I love lettuce. Anyway good things always start off small and with time, patience and a little bit of love wonderful things can happen.

    Donna, the garden looks small but it sure was a lot of work to dig it out and get rid of the grass that was growing there. I love getting up in the morning and going outside to see it. It’s amazing how from day to day, you can see the changes. I love it.
    Take care.

    good morning dear Carole,

    what a pretty little corner of the woods you live in~
    isn’t a garden just the best thing? No matter how small the garden, it always has a peaceful comfort to those that visit it and those that dig in the soil.

    have a wonderful first day of June my friend,

    Hi Christe’, what a nice surprise hearing from you today. Yes, no matter how big the garden, it’s just so much fun watering it and watching it grow. Each morning when I awake, I pour my cup of coffee and go to the veggie garden. It amazes me how much it seems to grow overnight. It looks a lot bigger now and everything appears to be very happy and healthy!
