I've Been.....

Busy!

planting flowers here.....

and here.....

and here....

and watching our wildflowers grow....

and grow.....

and grow.....

and these beauties are waiting to be planted in their new homes.....

after we clean up the mess that last nights torrential rain made.....on a side note.....this muddy mess will hopefully turn into grass on Friday.....the plan is to lay 3,300 square feet of sod down....with the help of hubby and my big boy.

And I picked up these great finds....thank you Fern and Sue! These too will be gettin' a makeover.

And all the while.....watching my babies.....grow up.....

as is Charlie.

Oh....and takin' a break every once in a while....to enjoy some of this.

So....in short....I've got lots of projects going on....we've been doing lots of gardening....building....and painting. This is the first time since we've lived here that we are finally getting to the outside....most of our time had been spent on making the inside more "us".....and now we're makin' the outside more "us" too.

And I haven't forgotten about the bike makeover or porch....those things are all being worked on right now....and I'll be sure and share them with you when they're done.

xoxo, Andrea

  1. Oh my, Andrea, your garden is divine! And taking a break once in a while for that kind of treat, should be taking a break all the time. ^_^

  4. It always amazes me how much time I spend planting each year. My gardens are full, yet I somehow find space for more plants.

    Good luck with all your projects, can't wait to see the final results.

  20. Your flowers are so pretty. The picture of where the rains passed through makes me think that you must be in Texas maybe? My brother emailed pictures from his home in New Braunfels with water rushing through the yard for a couple of hours.
    Glad it didn't wash your chickie-babies away!!
