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.

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!
