After the busy weekend I was happy for a slow day. It was going to rain by noon but I got this little corner of a hosta garden raked and cleaned off before it started. After that I was glad it was raining.
See a few little green hosta leaves poking up?
If it doesn’t rain tomorrow this is my next area to uncover.
Looks pretty hopeless, doesn’t it? And the planting time in the spring is so short – no time to think and plan before the greenhouses run short and close for the season. There used to be a gorgeous kiwi vine on the back fence but it died out completely so now I have to decide what to do in that spot.
On Saturday I emptied the playhouse and cleaned it all. Last year I was so stressed and so tired when Rick was laid up for all those months that putting garden things out was just not fun. This year will be different.
A few chicken pictures.
Don’t forget Harvey is still available until May 1 and the Goat Gazettes are available for $12.00. Beyond The Battlefield is $31.00. (I’m still planning a sew along but have to finish some things first!). Spring Gameboard is $5.00, Louise and Friends is $10.00.
What have I forgotten?
I finished sewing the rows of the Kaffe Fassett Pastel 9 Patch together today and also started working on the binding of Good Fortune. I need to hit the longarm machine the next rainy day – I love catching up!
I got a package in the mail from a reader who gifted me this very special needle case.
Thank you, Martha! I’ll think of you when I see it in my display case.
I learned this teepee “trick” from my friend Brenda in Kansas. I love leaning up those straight branches and limbs! It’s those little pleasures that make life in the country so fun!
Not much new today but wanted to touch base.
