a little tour of the garden over at tend.
time for some mojitos.
over at tend.
this morning i was greeted by another dog walker who had some questions about raising backyard chickens. she told me our house felt like oregon, where her daughter lives.
this afternoon when i was watering the garden, a guy and his dog strolled by and told me “i love how you are always doing something new here.”
a week ago a woman who lives around the corner stopped by with her dog. she introduced herself, told me how much she loves our garden and that she was building a rock wall inspired by ours. she then handed me a plant she had picked up at the nursery that she thought i might like.
i love living on the corner.
and i like people with dogs.
it’s a hot one today.
i woke up early to get some garden work done before the heat started to really settle in.
i just came in and was about to turn the radio on when i started to really listen to my surroundings….
the hum of the box fans, the birds, the whirling of the sprinkler and the laughter of the kids running through it, and the clucking of the hens.
yes i think i will keep the radio off and tune in to my own station right here at second and edgemont.
:: feels like the weekend has already started.
be brought strawberries and homemade barbeque sauce home from the farmers market today.
the long weekend will be full of parties and picnics.
i am super excited to have been invited to this on saturday night. thanks kate!
i stumbled on this interview with Lisa Congdon and found it inspirational.
a little recipe for catnip insect repellent over at tend.
it’s been snowing here for days, beautiful pink snow.
our cherry trees are in full bloom and each time the wind blows it snows.
it’s been quite warm here this week and all of the windows are open.
i have yet to put the screens in though.
which means it snows inside too.
but i don’t mind a few petals on my pillow.
as ms. blossom dearie said “they say it’s spring”
today was almost 60 degrees and sunny.
i bought a few violas and a some sweet alyssum to brighten up some pots.
i then cleaned up a few beds, and we planted peas and some spinach in the cold frame.
norah has been wanting to plant seeds for weeks now.
the other day while at the store she had some of her own money to spend.
she chose to buy seeds rather than candy.
