Summer is here! The kids and I are out of school. Our first round of summer guests has just left for the airport. Gardens are growing like crazy…weeds too. The new David Austin Roses are beginning to bloom, we have peppers nearly ready to pick, beans and tomatoes blooming and the herb garden is needing daily harvesting and flowers are beginning to bloom.
It’s been quite busy and there are still many unfinished projects and some unstarted ones as well. I look forward to a day or two of puttering in the garden and around the house. Realistically, though, between the dancer’s busy summer schedule…classes an hour away 2 evenings a week and at least one more week of daily trips for dance camp and cheerleading practices, the hunter’s multiple summer jobs and needing to get him to the MVA to test for his Driver’s license and the weaver’s schedule of demos and arts and craft fairs…. puttering time will likely continue to be limited.
The patio/sitting area is layed out awaiting further work, new hammock is up and in use, fire pit has been purchased and we’ve had two lovely evenings sitting around it making s’mores and sandwiches and telling stories and singing songs. I’m putting some photos below for you to see the progress we’re making.
