"Gardening is the purest of human pleasures." -- Francis Bacon
It's been hot here. Too hot really. It's tricking me into thinking it's summer. I've been neglecting everything; cleaning, emails, painting, cooking, so I can work in the flower beds. I've mulched, mowed, pruned, weeded and even planted an apple tree (thanks mom). I did manage to paint a cat welcome sign for the PFATT Marketplace which will go up for sale tomorrow. Scroll down to see. Inspired by our kity, Pumpkin.
My two beds in the back of my house I made last year.
Pretty little weeping red bud my husband bought me for Mother's Day last year.
My daughter loves to help mulch, see her little wheel barrow?
The new bed in front of the house. I can't wait until these plants get bigger.
Zoe was picking dandelions in the neighbor's yard today. He rarely mows.
In fact, he rarely goes outside. Weird.
Nothing quite as sweet as a big bouquet of danelions picked by a 4 year old. They're sitting on an antique child's desk I bought at an estate sale for $2 yesterday. I plant to paint it in Zoe's favorite colors.
And there's our little Pumpkin Pie!
