A Garden Post

Oh my good gravy WHAT A WEEKEND. Two solid days in the yard. Bliss!

Our gardens are looking wonderful, if I do say so myself. Our new landscaping came through the winter despite us doing nothing (because it's under warranty so why would we do that), so that was quite exciting to have come back to life this spring.

Here are the raised beds that I've been dying for. Our backyard is so sunny and plain, just perfect for some fruits and veggies.

I also managed to get these by doing almost nothing. My dad built them, delivered them, installed them, and even filled one with dirt by carrying twenty 40-lb bags of soil on his head. Dad, you get all the strawberries and tomatoes you want!

Tomatoes!

Here is the long-awaited (allllllll winter) Fairy Garden! I planted wildflower nubbins everywhere, and there isn't much action yet. But it sure will be exciting if something grows. We check it every day.

And look who is the happiest little potted tree ever! With tiny blossoms that smell so amazing. You just step onto the porch and you're in Spain.

Also on the porch, some pansies Bella picked out at the nursery. Right before shouting "I HAVE TO GO TO THE BATHROOM RIGHT NOW!"

And the lilacs are definitely at their peak.

Today we planted some moonflower with high hopes of it climbing up one of the deck poles. Bella told me the seeds smelled like the moon. What a wonderful thought.
