I thought I'd give you a break from the strawberries (which have undergone another change!) and show you what I did in my garden today.
I have sadly neglected my garden and yard since we bought this house 4 years ago, but this is the Summer of the garden! We aren't going away this Summer, we have having a stay-cation instead, with family traveling to visit us. Since we will be home a lot, I really want to enjoy the outside, and so beautifying it is high on my priority list.
Remember back HERE when I dug out a strip of sod next to our pathway? Today I finally planted and mulched the strip.
I did eventually get it all out, and kept the rocks to use as a border.
I also snuck out to Home Depot and picked up 3 hydrangeas which are my favorite plant. How many rocks do you think I'll find digging the holes for these?!
As for quilting, tonight I cut out two more blocks for my Kitchen fruit & vege quilt, but I have to save something to show for another day, right?!
Great work on the pathway. Looks very pretty now.
Your son is so clever to pick up your pattern!
I love how your pathway along the driveway turned out!! And how nice to have your son as a little helper. We have very rocky soil here in CT-- not fun!! I'm hoping to do some planting this weekend. Have a nice Memorial Day weekend!
It looks beautiful! I think my soil grows rocks better than anything.
Thank you for visiting Hollyhocks. I am going to be posting an autumn art quilt, made by my students, later this week. I am pretty excited about it, so stop back. I know what you mean about gardening turning into excavating. I live in a place that's all clay...like digging through concrete when the weather is dry...
Hoho, Joaquin has nice logical thinking! Not all kids his age will realize that. The rocks made up for the frustration while digging them. You made use of them pretty well and it looks cute. You'll have really good bonding times with your family in a garden like that! :)
