Weekend in Pictures

Crushin' on our new trellis wire that Dan put up in place of the old horizontal deck railing

Crushin’ on our new deck trellis that Dan put up in place of the old horizontal railing in the front for our new jasmine to climb on. It was the last day of sunshine before the rain came in so we ran over to Home Depot for 14 gauge wire and eye screws and created this for under $10.

Continuing on my series of serious gazes by my husband and dog, here we find them working on his bike in the garage when the clouds came in…

blue

Loving watching the first buds on our blueberry plants and the tiny bit of dew on them. After losing our older bushes last year to rust disease that came back a second time, we’re starting over in a different area and hoping for the best!

hooks

It’s the little things…found some cool hooks at Garden Fever for our frequently-used garden gloves and knee pads that have been crowding out the drawer.

potato

Woo hoo! Potatoes are off and running!

seeds

My second favorite part of the process after the actual blooming: sunflower seeds emerging from the ground. I like to start them in pots so that I don’t forget where I planted them!

tulip

Madly in love with our first tulips!!! After much needed rain this weekend refilled our rain barrel and cistern, everything is growing happily!

    Is your husband always so serious looking? 🙂 I envy you your tulips. I can’t grow them here (or at the apartment) because the deer dig them up and eat them before they even have an opportunity to start.

    And your porch….that’s one of the ideas I have been toying with for mine. I do have some wood here that I might be able to repupose around the deck, if they fit then that is what I will use otherwise my deck supports will end up looking just like yours.

      LOL I know! He says he feels cheesy smiling for the camera sometimes so I took advantage of it with the dog’s serious look 🙂 yeah we have an annual battle with squirrels and crows with the tulip bulbs, buggers!!

    Spring is a pleasant time to a gardener it is just like Christmas. Waiting for the sprouts and the first flowers. I love your deck. I think it is awesome that you collect rainwater!
