In the middle of all the garden work, I took a nine-day trip to Appalachia to help Lizzie and Justin move into a new house. Not the most propitious time for me, but that's the way it worked out, and the garden work will all get done. Yes, it will.
I arrived before the actual moving day and so was able to help pack. But the unpacking is so much more fun, don't you think? Here is the kitchen a day a half after our arrival. We are amazing to have made so much progress in such a short time, are we not?
Though you can't tell from the pictures, the walls are a slightly subdued lime green, which is cheerful and bright and goes fantastically with the Fiestaware! (This room has no windows and my camera is old by digital standards, so the colors are not quite right.)
The door leads to the converted garage, which is now housing boxes yet to be unpacked.
This baby is so incredibly pretty that I'll probably just sprinkle pictures of her throughout this post.
Hannah and I planted allium bulbs last fall, which was something new for us. They were open when I got home, and wow! I love them! They make me smile every time I see them!
They are between four and six inches in diameter and very tall. They seem to hover over the garden. This is my view from the kitchen window, and it makes me happy. We have two other plantings of allium also.
