{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}~ April 26, 2015

Let's dive right in, shall we?

{Pretty} and {Happy}

Jo-Ann had this darling vintage-inspired fabric on the clearance tables, so I bought all they had, three yards' worth minus an inch (!).  I used some of it to make a miniature pillowcase for a pillow for our bed.

Cute, isn't it?  The rest will be judicially doled out to worthy projects.  I'm thinking maybe another baby bonnet for starters.

Here is the pillow gracing our bed.


There are bluebirds living in our woods!  I love seeing the flash of blue as they flit around.  I hope they stay and have lots of babies!

They are elusive and hard to photograph!


This is a pretty little spot, excellent for reading in good weather.  Hannah has been putting it to the most use as she reads or writes and soaks up some sun.  She's camera-shy these days, so you'll just have to take my word for it.  The sculpture/plant stand was sculpted by Dave's grandfather.


We planted summer bulbs/roots~ glads, freesias, dahlias, and day lilies~ this afternoon and also some zinnia seeds.  Dave's parents used this place to grow vegetables, but since we have put in a bigger vegetable garden, it is being used for flowers now, which in my book are every bit as important as veggies.  There is still quite a bit of space toward the front.  I think I will plant annuals there this year. Eventually, I want it all to be perennials, but I need to think about it some more before committing to specific plants and a specific layout.

The red stuff is chili powder.  It keeps the squirrels from digging everything up!

Some of the spinach is big enough to eat now.  We also have planted carrots, but they are far from ready, of course.


The soaker hoses clue you in to how much (or little, as the case may be) of the garden we have planted so far.  It's still a little early for tomatoes, beans, etc., but you can see we have a long way to go and a lot of ground to cover!
